Dear Pru

Pru Raymond is a knitting teacher, designer and writer. She shares her home in Adelaide, South Australia with her husband and a healthy yarn stash.

It’s amazing how much joy some string and two sticks has brought me over the years! I learnt to knit when I was 5, thanks to a neighbour. However, my real development as a knitter was thanks to my Grandma and her subscription to the English Women’s Weekly. Each edition included two knitting patterns, which became a kind of curriculum! As an adult I have continued my learning journey by attending knitting workshops and participating in knit-a-longs with friends. This has nurtured my skills and enriched my life. Knitting has also fostered friendships, inspired travel and become the basis for my creative entrepreneurship. 

I began running Dear Pru in 2017 as a side hustle while working as a high school history teacher. My intention was to share skills, foster creativity and connect more deeply with my community through my knitting workshops.

Teaching knitting workshops around Australia remains at the core of my business. I also publish original knitting patterns and freelance for knitting publications. Work has begun on an online learning platform to share Dear Pru knitting workshops virtually.
