Knit design

I’ve been fascinated by textiles since I was a child, spending my teenage years poring through James Lavers’ Concise History of Costume and turning charity shop finds into dodgy emo-style outfits with my mum’s old sewing machine.

These days I specialise in traditional handknitting styles like lopis and ganseys. I also enjoy creating colourful projects for using up scraps.

Below are a few of my favourite handknit designs – the top two garments were for Debbie Bliss’s Aymara collection. You can find more of my knit and crochet work on Ravelry.
