Nathan Taylor

ABOUT SOCKMATICIAN   Nathan Taylor, (aka Sockmatician on Ravelry, Instagram, YouTube and Twitter) is obsessed with double-knitting! He has been knitting seriously since 2011, and designing since around the same time. His passion is for sharing his knowledge of DK with as many people as possible, and pushing the boundaries, and furthering what is possible within the realms of this addictive and beautiful technique.

His first published design was in Knit Now! Magazine, and in 2015, he was approached by Vogue Knitting Magazine in the USA to design a DK Shawl for their Fall 2015 issue. That design has recently been included in the book Vogue Knitting: Shawls and Wraps 2. He was especially proud in 2016 to be able to contribute a design to the very first issue of the new knitting magazine for men, Rib Magazine.  The start of 2017 saw him being contacted by The Knitter Magazine to design a DK/brioche hybrid hat for them.

Nathan hosts a very popular knitting podcast on YouTube, and particularly champions male knitters, with a view to getting not only more men into knitting, but also getting more patterns aimed at men out there. His YouTube channel also has many tutorials for the many and varied techniques involved in knitting his patterns, and Nathan is dedicated to making these tutorials as friendly, and as easy to understand as possible. As a result of his work in these fields, Nathan was named as Knit Now Magazine’s Knitter of the Year, in the Online Innovator category.
