Scott started with us as a sales associate in the shop, and moved to our ecom team after pitching in to give the team a hand to send out all your MKAL packages. Scott loves talking to customers and helping them with colour palette options, especially for Westknits patterns.

His background in crafts stretches back to childhood, when he was taught to knit by his grandmother and how to crochet by his mother. As a teenager, he further developed his textile skills by working in his aunt's machine knitwear factory during summer holidays. Scott loves making hats and sweaters, especially if they feature stranded colourwork or cables. In the summer, he usually switches to mandala patterned crochet pieces, but right now he's working on Stephen's Extra Texture Sweater.

When he's not knitting (it's rare!), Scott is a keen baker and loves walking in the forest and checking in on his squirrel buddy. Scott is beginning to design his own patterns and his first hat will be published before Christmas. Keep an eye out! Scott is wearing the Richter Sweater by our colleague Julia Wilkins.
