Knitting: Pullover
This sweater is a simple basic Raglan pullover with instructions on how to do some simple calculations so you can do a colour blocked version (as shown in the sample) using as many or as few colours as you would like.
Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
After I had finished working on a different project using 6 skeins of fingering weight yarn I had lots of leftovers and I decided I wanted them to be something else really special, the yarns all meant alot to me due to the place I was in personally when I purchased them and I wanted to make the most of it.
Knitting: Cowl
I recently published the WAFFLE Pullover and I loved the textured stitch in that pattern so much I really wanted to design a cowl that used it as well. It creates such a squishy fabric that it just begged to be something that went round the neck.
Knitting: Beanie, Toque
Three of my closest friends have their birthdays within a month of each other and so last year I decided to knit them all hats for their birthday. I ended up designing 3 different cabled hats but all using the same base pattern just incorporating different cables in each one. I thought this would be a fun idea to play with and wrote up the patt...
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
I had the idea for this shawl for a while before I finally allowed myself to cast it on … I hadn’t fully decided on the shape or exact pattern but I knew I wanted to marl the colours together in the method I used here. It does take a small amount of planning at the start but this is such a quick and satisfying project to work on its totally wor...
Knitting: Cowl
I have recently fallen in love with the Fisherman’s Rib technique and especially how it creates a Brioche fabric without actually using Brioche stitches … I find its a much simpler way to knit brioche without being intimidating … there is also a video tutorial linked in the pattern which will help show you how to work the cables in this cowl.
Knitting: Pullover
I had always had this idea for a matching set of Pullovers for me and my daughter to wear! It had been mellowing out in my mind for a while until early 2018. Then I spent most of 2018 working on this idea and I love how it turned out.

Knitting: Beanie, Toque
This hat was designed to go with the matching sock pattern of the same name. Its a quick and simple to knit hat sized for all the family! The textured details are so quick to memorise you won’t even need the pattern once you get started until you get to the decreases.
Knitting: Pullover
I was delighted to have been asked by Kelsey (Primrose Yarn Co) to design a sweater for Vogue Knitting Live in New York (2019) our of her yarn. I had this idea for a pullover in mind for a while so as soon as she mentioned the collaboration I knew exactly what I wanted it to be!
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
I met Stephanie (Owner of Loop Fibre Studio) at Rhinebeck in 2018 and I was totally inspired by her new range of Yin Yang Artisanal Millspun yarns that I pretty much cast on this design less than a week after I got home!

Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
This is a large shawl inspired some of the most beautiful autumnal colours you see around this time (October) in nature and I love how these colours work together. Paired with a strand of lace weight Mohair Silk yarn it really tones down the brightness of the colours and brings the whole piece together.

Knitting: Pullover
I really wanted a fun yet practical sweater for my daughter, I had noticed over the last few months that pullovers were definitely more practical for her than cardigans with fussy buttons, and I was struggling to get her to keep a hat on her head, but she loved and tolerated the hood from her winter jacket.

Knitting: Beanie, Toque
I love simple textures and this pattern has just that … a really simple texture that is almost as mindless as plain stockinette, with fun Star shaped decreases on the crown of the hat (which is what gave this pattern its name)! As with most of my hat patterns this one is sized for all the family, an elegant and unisex design that would be suita...

Knitting: Pullover
This pullover was inspired by my desire for a garment that I could just throw on without fussing over but still look good, and its a relaxed fit boxy shaped pullover that does just that! Its comfortable and cosy to wear and a great layering piece or works well as something light to throw on for a slightly cool day.

This is fun and quick knit bonnet great for little ones! I was looking for a hat that my daughter wouldn’t quickly pull off her head and that would also keep her ears warm in the colder weather. In the end after some experimenting I came up with this bonnet and so far it has been the only thing my daughter has tolerated on her head for more tha...

Knitting: Dress
This dress is inspired by a dress that was knit for me when I was a baby by my Aunt Nahid (pronounced Nad-Heed) and as such it is very dear to my heart. I wanted to recreate a version of this dress so I could knit one in a larger size for my daughter after she had outgrown the original that I wore as a baby.

Knitting: Baby Blanket
This is a simple yet very effective Garter Chevron blanket design, I initially knit this when I was first pregnant with my baby, and it got me through a really rough week of morning sickness where this was the only thing I could knit on.

Knitting: Scarf, Shawl / Wrap
This pattern is a culmination of several of my favourite things, using fingering weight held double to roughly get a worsted weight fabric, and blending colours by marling them together in this way … after crocheting a baby blanket for my baby earlier this year the idea came to me that this technique would be really fun to work for a knitted sc...

A lovely fun shawl to knit with stockinette wings and a lace panel down the centre.

This was a design that was inspired by my first snow day experience in New York City.

But at the end of the first week of January 2017 New Yor...

I love knitting hats but I always find the ribbed brims were not thick enough to keep out the cold winds. I also wasn’t the biggest fan of a turned up brim as then I always felt like I was fussing around with the ribbing to make sure it was evenly folded up all around and to make sure it looked right all the time. So I decided to go with a vari...

Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
The name for this design was suggested to me by a viewer of my podcast and I love the idea behind it. Le Moelleux is French and means squishy, it is also a term used for the pastry Brioche in France as well … so Le Moelleux Shawl is quite simply The Squishy Brioche Shawl … a name that perfectly embodies the best aspects of this garment.

This hat was born by accident, I wanted something simple to knit and fancied making a slouchy hat, so I just cast on and knit away. It wasn’t until I had finished the hat and went to put it on my head that I discovered the proportions had worked out perfectly for it to be both a slouchy hat and a beanie.
