Maja Karlsson

Ever since her grandmother first taught her to knit when she was six years old, Maja Karlsson’s fascination with the possibilities of knitting has increased. Over time, Maja started to work more with knit designs, and since four years that is her main work. She has a pedagogical education and has worked for many years at a conservatory as a lecturer in musical theory and singing. But as the knitting work picked up, she has slowly but steadily built up her own business , working with pattern designs, writing, photography, blogging, an online store and as a course leader. She lives with her husband and daughter in Arvika, working in an studio with old creaking floorboards and an incredibly beautiful rose wallpaper.
