Knitting Guru

Job Title: Knitting Guru

Job Summary:

The Knit It Mission is to inspire the digital generation to pick up their needles and start knitting. We will boldly go where no knitter has been before! As an award-winning start-up company we inspire and want to empower individuals to be the best they can be and pursue their dreams. All creatives are that little bit weird… but that’s what make us so unique! We let our artistic flair fly free and are unashamedly quirky in everything we do.

The successful candidate will ooze the same passion we have and strive to make things the best they can be. You won’t be afraid of experimenting and testing new ideas and will excel letting your creative side shine through! You will be responsible for getting into the knitty gritty of patterns… and even writing your own. You will be able to understand and interpret knitting patterns, check and translate patterns and test knit patterns.

Therefore, our ideal candidate must be professional and friendly, have fantastic attention to detail and possess excellent communication skills with the ability to work to tight deadlines. This would be an ideal role for a hobbyist knitter looking to fill their time and earn some money doing something they love.
