My name is Karen Wiederhold and i'm a published freelance yarn and general craft designer living in Gloucestershire, UK. 


I was born to my Scottish parents and raised in South Africa before moving to the UK in my 30's.  My heritage is Scottish, Swedish and Finnish so in combination with living in England it makes for a diverse interest in styles to inspire my creations. 


My interest in knitting and crocheting began at a very young age and being creative and crafting is a large part of what makes me who I am.

I live with my husband and have a constant flow of our adult children who move home or visit for different periods of time from their travels for work, university or from overseas.


I took a short design break for about two years to focus on studies, and returned in early 2020 with new ideas for projects and patterns for Weediflower Creations.

Magazines I have been published in are


Let's Get Crafting - Knitting and Crochet,

Crafts Beautiful,


The Ultimate Cardmaker

(hardcover book published by David and Charles),

PaperCraft Inspirations,

Cardmaking and Papercraft.

In addition to writing and designing for magazines I enjoyed many occasions as a tutor in workshops at a specialist scrapbooking and paper craft shop in Gloucestershire.


Thank you so much for visiting me here and giving your support to my creative endeavours. I love sharing what I create in the hopes that the projects give you as much enjoyment and relaxation as they do me.


Best wishes, Karen
