About the Designer

Zev Hurwich is a knitter and designer based in New York City. He started designing knitwear after realizing that if he wanted more patterns for knitting men's garments he'd have to make them himself. He specializes in sweater design, and his first design to be professionally featured appears in Knitty's Winter 2017 issue. He is devoted to making comfy garments in a variety of styles for people of all ages and genders. He regularly puts out new patterns on Ravelry, or by commission.

HurwichCraft's mission is to make stylish and innovative patterns available to all lovers of knitwear. You can find free patterns in the blog, and premium content on the patterns page. Also be sure to sign up for the monthly newsletter to get access to exclusive patterns, sales, and all things HurwichCraft.




While I don't sell the knitwear you can see in my portfolio, I can create original sweaters by commission. I can create a sweater with a number of design elements and specifically tailored to any measurements given. If you are interested in a commission you can contact me to talk about what you'd like. Prices will vary based on desired material, size, and complexity of the design.
