My name is Deanne Ramsay and I live in Canberra, Australia. I am on a mission to create designs that are not only great to wear and use, but are interesting and enjoyable to create as well. After all, you are the one doing all the hard work!
I like to use simple stitch combinations to create interesting and beautiful fabrics as well as provide a canvas for you to make your own fabulous, colourful masterpiece. Being a busy mother, I fully embrace the idea of minimum effort for maximum effect so I try to incorporate that philosophy into my patterns. My designs are virtually, if not completely seamless, and most are easily customised for the perfect fit. I love using a variety of fibres and combining colours to create beautiful, practical and interesting pieces.
All my patterns are offered with full after-sales support. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact me via email. I am always happy to be of any assistance I can and would love to hear from you.
I look forward to seeing what you create from my designs. Together, lets show the world how fabulous crochet can be!
Stradbroke is a baby-doll style top featuring racer back straps that button at the front. The ribbed bodice opens up into a pretty lace pattern that finishes with a scalloped edging at the hem.
Hat elastic is used to create the shirred effect of the bodice and has the added benefit of providing a perfect fit while allowing room to grow. Worked from the top down and totally seamless, creating something special for the special little girl in your life couldn't be easier.
Skill Level: INTERMEDIATE
This is a project created using basic stitches and requires minimal shaping and finishing. Ability to work front and back post stitches is required. Not recommended for beginners.
Stradbroke Island is the third of the sand islands visible from the Redcliffe Peninsula, Queensland Australia. Its golden beaches and rolling dunes are truly captivating. Originally one large island, it split into two in the late 19th century and is now divided into North and South by the Jumpinpin Channel. These unique features are the inspiration behind "Stradbroke."
