"My aim is to provide a trail of knowledge and inspiration you can follow.”


Transform your knits with a handful of simple embroidery stitches: a cosy cardigan embellished with bright flowers, a dragonfly on the front of a sweater and mittens with plants climbing up the back of the hand. This timeless embroidery book features 18 nature-inspired templates, generously complimented by insightful tips and ideas on how to use them. Embroidery on Knits is an in-depth guide to contemporary stitching with and on wool, explaining every step of the process — from planning to finished project. It is a source of inspiration and knowledge for crafty beginners and savvy stitchers alike. 


Judit Gummlich is a multi-talented crafter who has worked in theatre costume departments for more than 20 years. She is a passionate knitter, gardener, beekeeper and nature lover. Judit lives with her husband, bees and two cats in Hamburg, Germany. Embroidery on Knits is her first book.

Embroidery on Knits comes with a folded up A1 poster containing all templates for the book's 18 embroidery projects. As a thank you for all the enthusiasm, we have decided to make these templates also available digitally. (And for free!) This allows readers to resize the templates, print them out individually or trace them from a screen directly. Whether it's for a children's cardigan or a hand knitted blanket — in that way all the templates can be adapted for any planned project in any size. We hope that the downloadable and printable PDFs make the book even more user-friendly, cheering people to grab their knits, a needle and threads and get stitching!
