Knitting Patterns

Pattern Montage 2
I love knitting, I always have, since I first learned when I was a small child.  In my designs I try to combine form and function – after all what is the point of something that looks beautiful but doesn’t fit?  I mostly design accessories, because I just can’t knit fast enough for anything bigger!

I’ve designed patterns for two fabulous yarn companies – Three Irish Girls and Artesano Yarns – for their monthly yarn clubs and as kits.

My patterns can all be found on RavelryPatternfish and Loveknitting, as well as here – just scroll down to find them.
