Meet Sylvia Watts-Cherry

FACE SHOT1

Meet Sylvia Watts-Cherry. Sylvia is a UK based designer who loves bold patterns and striking colours. She learned to knit at the age of 8 and is a prolific knitter, using her African heritage as well as her Scottish upbringing for inspiration.

Sylvia was a runner up in Kirstie’s Handmade Christmas Jumper in 2018, with her African inspired Christmas sweater and has had patterns published in Knit Now and Pompom Quarterly magazines. Her most recognisable pattern to date is the Nubian Queen jumper.  The design went viral on social media in early 2019.

A qualified teacher, Sylvia uses her skills in teaching Intarsia colourwork workshops and other knitting techniques.

We are delighted that Sylvia will be designing our second exclusive pattern for our 5th birthday brochure.

Our 5th birthday brochure is only available at Yarningham Marketplace.
