Knitting Around Corners

I love knitting. I especially love knitting around corners.

When my little boy was born, I wanted to knit him something cuddly. I looked through lots of toy patterns and discovered that most of them involved knitting lots of small pieces and sewing them together. That did not appeal to me. So I started designing my own patterns.

Natty Knits patterns use short-row shaping, knitting in the round and picking up stitches to keep the sewn seams to a minimum. The patterns never use wires or plastic shape inserts, it's all done with the power of yarn.

Each Natty Knits pattern has a full blog entry of Hints and Tips that the knitter can refer to. I also blog about my design process, inspirations and other techniques that knitters might find useful.

Occasionally I am contacted by art directors, ad agencies and arts organizations who want to use my images. I almost always say yes. So if you've seen that shark in an ad campaign, or that duck on the front of a festival program, you've come to the right place to learn how to knit one for yourself.

Let me help you knit around corners.
