Welcome to the Cornish Knitting Company!
My name is Sarah Murray and I launched the Cornish Knitting Company to promote the beauty and excitement of knitting. Knitting is my passion and I can do it anytime and anywhere. In fact, I am often to be found knitting on a Cornish cliff top or sand dune (weather permitting of course!).
My designs are all my own and original, and I like to use Cornwall as my inspiration. This is reflected in my work via my choice of colours and textures and I love to photograph finished items against the dramatic backdrop of the Cornish coast and countryside.
I can design any item you like, for personal and household items.
I also offer technical editing and pattern compiling.
Please visit my online shop at
where you can buy my digital knitting patterns.
You can also find my designs at loveknitting.com, lovecrochet.com, and at deramores.com

Items I have knitted recently
These lavender bags were inspired by some knitted Christmas decorations I had made a few years ago. I wanted to enjoy a hanging decoration the rest of the year, too! They are knitted in 4ply 100% merino wool to give a fine finish to the detail and to ensure the knitted covers weren’t too thick to release the smell of the lavender. The filling is dried lavender flowers inside a sewn material lining of plain cotton
| These reversible gloves are knitted in the round on 4 needles to avoid a seam, and the top is grafted together giving an allover seamless effect. The double sided knitting technique readily lends itself to knitting in the round. These are knitted in 100% merino 4 ply as I wanted to ensure that they were not too bulky (especially in the smallest size) but to make sure that they were still warm and cosy.
| When I designed this neck wrap I wanted to make something that was light, delicate and feminine but still warm. It’s made from a 50% mohair and 50% acrylic mix and has an all over lace pattern that is simple to knit. I used a provisional cast on which I unravelled to graft together with the stitches on the last row, to again create a seamless garment. By knitting this in a longer length, you could create a neck wrap that wound twice around the neck.
| This cushion cover is knitted in cream aran and I wanted to create an all over woven cable effect. I also want to make a matching throw with the same all over pattern. This would probably be knitted on a circular needle (in rows) due to its size.
I have lots more things in my head that I can’t wait to start knitting! If only I could knit as fast as I can think!
For further information on any of these topics, please contact me! I would love to hear from you if you share my passion or if you want to discover the joy of knitting!
