FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

CAN I SELL ITEMS MADE FROM YOUR PATTERNS?
I am happy for you to sell a few items made from my patterns at local craft fairs and for charity, but please credit me as the designer. I include the copyright stipulation as I would not want anyone to mass produce an item from one of my patterns!
However, you cannot sell or reproduce the actual pattern.

ARE YOUR PATTERNS SUITABLE FOR BEGINNERS?
I would class my patterns as intermediate, suitable for knitters with some experience, unless I have included ‘easy’ or ‘beginner’ in the title; although you would still need to know how to cast on, knit, purl, cast/bind off and join a seam.
However, my patterns include comprehensive instructions, photographs and charts where necessary.

DO YOU PROVIDE PATTERN SUPORT?
Should you have a query you can always send me an email or conversation through Etsy and I will be happy to help.

WHAT LANGUAGE ARE YOUR PATTERN WRITTEN IN?
My patterns are all written in English using standard knitting abbreviations, for which a key is included in the pattern.

ARE YOUR PATTERNS FOR KNITTING FLAT OR IN THE ROUND?
My patterns are mainly for knitting flat using two needles. However, I have started to design some for knitting in the round using a circular needle; these patterns also include instructions for knitting flat and the Description section of my Etsy listing will tell you which type of instructions are included.

About

Knitting patterns for the Little People - Unique, Cute Patterns for You to Knit

From a young age I have always enjoyed art and craft work, making things for myself and others. In later life I began to concentrate on sewing and knitting, followed by pattern design, firstly for machine knitters and then hand knitters. My interest in designing for babies and children started upon the arrival of my own children and now that they are growing up I have more time to turn my hobby into a small business!

I enjoy the whole design process, from the initial idea to knitting up the sample garment, writing the pattern, photographing the various construction stages and, finally, photographing the completed garment to promote my pattern.

Inspired by the countryside and my farming background, my designs are themed around the great outdoors!

Thank you for visiting my shop and I hope you enjoy browsing through my patterns.
