Kate Gondwana

I’m an Australian home-based knitwear designer, who fits knitting around running after my girls, singing in choirs and being very involved with the school’s Parents’ Association. Or is it that everything else fits around knitting…. yeah, that’s it!

I like simple lines, practical garments, classic styles. I like clearly written instructions and well tested patterns - I think you’ll find all those in my designs. Most of my designs are unisex, with instructions for buttonholes on either left or right.

Often on patterns I find the caveat that knitters may not sell items made with the pattern. After a lot of thought and research I have decided that I don’t agree with this statement: I don’t believe that the designer has any rights over the finished product, so, if you’re handknitting and you want to sell items made from my patterns - Best of Luck, and Go For It! I think handknitting for a living must be quite a challenge, so you need all the help I can give you. Please just credit the pattern’s name along with mine. Of course, my rights DO cover the patterns themselves, so you mustn’t copy or distribute them.
