‘Comfrey’ has been a very popular design from ‘Windswept’. It’s been so popular that it inspired me to design the version ‘Derwent’ from ‘Lakeland’ and ‘Alice’ from ‘Once Upon a Time’. It’s a lovely warm and toasty cardigan wrap with lots of chunky cabling details.
‘Jasmine’ is a flattering design to wear. It is slightly A line in shape and the saddle shoulders allow the cable pattern to extend up to the side of the neck. It is knitted with a combination of garter stitch and cables and therefore is a good practise style for those wishing to improve their cabling skills.
Knitting: Pillow / Cushion
This fun to knit cushion was the project for a workshop earlier this year. It’s a good introduction to 3D knitting and partial knitting. It is an easy technique to master and the loops formed can be turned inside out for a different look, the photographs show the two ways.
I Love ‘Lovage’ …I love wearing it and the one I have has been washed and worn lots of times and it seems to improve with age, it just gets softer and softer. It’s a very popular design from my first book ‘Windswept’ and I saw a few being worn with pride at the recent Yarndale Show!

As it uses garter stitch as the b...
Knitting: Hot Water Bottle
The ‘Nordic Hot Water Bottle Cover’ started life as a workshop project for Christmas 2014, it then became a very popular kit. I’m now launching a new collection of kits so I can release this design as a pattern download. It’s a great design to practise your Fairisle skills as it only uses 2 colours throughout. When finish...
ORCHID is a lovely easy to wear boxy style, knitted using Rowan Felted Tweed. The design uses lace and twisted stitch textures. I personally love this design and I wear it a lot. Georgia, my model also had this style knitted in ‘Gilt’ as part of her fee for modelling! The garment shown is knitted in Amethyst 192.
‘Rosemary’ from ‘Windswept’ is a lovely knit and crochet combination. This design was actually inspired by ‘Bread and Butter’ from Rowan’s ‘Little Star’ brochure. At the time I received lots of emails asking for an adult version, hence I included ‘Rosemary’ in my first book!
‘Sage’ is probably the most popular design from ‘Windswept’ and I’ve seen many knitters version of it. I wear my original garment a lot and like any garment knitted in Felted Tweed, improves with age. This design was the original inspiration for the much complimented ‘Sage Throw’, which subsequently insp...
