Justine Turner designs knitwear for babies and children under the label Just Jussi.
Justine considers not only the needs of parents and young children when creating her designs, but also the needs of the knitter. Many of her patterns offer simple shaping and seamless construction, while retaining the designer look. Unusual construction methods are another hallmark of the Just Jussi style, and she is constantly experimenting in order to provide knitters with fresh and fun pattern ideas.
With a qualification in Commercial Knitwear Design and Technology from ATI Justine has designed knitting patterns for the past seven years, both self publishing and freelance for a variety of companies. She also teaches at New Zealand knitting retreats and LYS throughout the country and photographs pregnant Mummies and their precious newborns in her other business Justine Turner Photography. Yes, the babies are almost always photographer in knitting!
Justine and her husband “Flash” have a large, delightful grown up family, and a number of gorgeous grandchildren. They live in the lush, bush clad Waitakere ranges overlooking Auckland City, New Zealand and spend way too much time wrangling their spoilt Bengal cat “Frasier”.
