Melissa Leapman is perhaps the most widely known indie knit and crochet designer.
Leapman has achieved her status by distributing thousands of her samples of her work as far and as she could.
Despite the fact that her creation is shifted to such an extent that she has built up a huge number of styles, she will in general support traditional feel. In any case, she has put up strongly contemporary designs time and again.
An independent designer, her works have been included in magazines like Crochet! Magazine, Love of Crochet, Vogue Knitting, Love of Knitting, Cast On, Knit ‘n Style or Crochet Today.
Most of Leapman’s patterns are for sale on ravelry.com.
She has been a guest on a few of Leisure Arts’ weaving and knitting shows. Leapman also gives exceptionally sought after workshops in the United States.
At long last, she is an author of several craft books that sold exceptionally well: Color Knitting the Easy Way (Potter Craft, 2010), Mastering Color Knitting (Potter Craft, 2011) or Knitting the Perfect Fit (Potter Craft, 2012).
She’s active on social media and runs regular Instagram Lives about knitting inspired by different cultures.
Here are some of the most fascinating examples from her Instagram and Ravelry accounts.
