This has kept my mum entertained for hours and taught her some new knitting techniques. She's half way through one in a few days and planning to make several more already.

Somehow I purchased this twice and the seller kindly refunded back as soon as she found I was having difficulty downloading the pattern. Very happy .. thank you

Lurcher knitting pattern
I love designing knitting patterns - getting that essentially ideal shape via short rows, increases, decreases/ trial and error ... Working towards my next design

From babies to babes to babies

...and it all started with babies - when I gave birth to my first child - 14 and half years ago! - I decided to re-learn to knit and not content with knitting other peoples patterns I decided to design my own - dolls.
I scratched around with quite a few variations and then my first 'babe' with spaghetti legs - namely Dot Pebbles was born. I made some more gave them a name and a character put together some kits to sell and then contacted a publisher and had a book named after them - the Knitted Babes... from here spring boarded more books and more patterns, from knitted babes to knitted babies and Pixie Moon and that's what led me here - to Etsy - and a knitted pattern shop selling all my dolls and their clothes and a few bits and bobs like tea cosies and mittens!

This is Appley Peach - my most up to date Knitted Babe - there are lots of clothes for her to make too.

from babe to baby - cute baby doll pattern with clothes for a girl and for a boy

This is Pixie Moon - she is my best selling pattern. I think it's her hair that everyone loves!

Pixie has a large collection of outfits to make - knit and sew - she's a fun doll to work with.

Alfie elephant - a new range - clothed animal dolls. They are felted too to give them that vintage feel of old blankets!

…And I have recently added a shop of ready made crochet items - it's - please come and visit anytime!
