UK knitting designer Jean Greenhowe began her career in the 1960s designing fashion garments for Vogue Knitting. In 1967 she joined Woman’s Weekly magazine as their craft features writer and designer. Jean remained with the magazine for 24 years, producing hundreds of designs in a wide variety of crafts. In fact, her designs became so popular that a Jean Greenhowe feature guaranteed a sell-out! During these 24 years with the Women's Weekly, Jean also wrote 19 craft books, including ‘Knitted Toys’ which was one of the best-selling knitting books ever written. Her books remain popular to this day.
Jean died in June 2021 and her children now carry on her business - Jean Greenhowe Designs.
