I am a UK knitwear designer and have worked in the fashion industry as a freelance knitwear designer for the last 20+ years designing for designer labels, high street stores, and colour and fashion trend forecasting studios, and I have loved every minute of it.
I also had a dream to set up my own baby and childrens knitwear label. I followed my dream and set up my first knitwear label back in 1995. My collection of classic baby knits has sold to adorable childrens boutiques and gift stores across the UK, Europe, and the US. It was a very exciting day when Harrods Knightsbridge agreed to sell my knits.
I have also been employed as a visiting tutor at four art schools where I have taught knitwear design to students on BA Hons Degree courses.

Thanks for popping by and hope to see you again soon.

A cute beanie knitting pattern with a cute red London Bus........ broom broom! The perfect little picture knit for little boys!
This classic pixie beanie hat has been my best selling hat for many years knitted in one colour or striped.....but now I have decided to put some cute picture knits onto this pixie hat as picture knits are so popular for both little boys and little girls.
This hat is knitted with Bergere De France Caline 4ply yarn on 3.25mm (US#3) needles. You will need between 87 - 196 yards (80 - 179 m) of Caline. Detailed information is given in your pattern. This yarn is easily available to buy online in lots of lovely colours.
This little red bus is an intarsia knit with a very simple hand embroidered finish to give an applique effect. Detailed photographs are included in the pattern.
My knitting patterns are written so they are very easy to understand. If you have a question do look in my support FAQ section at www.lindawhaley.co.uk as you may find that somebody has already asked your question. If you can't find an answer just send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org .... I am always happy to help if I can.
DUE TO NEW EU VAT LEGISLATION FROM JANUARY 1ST 2015 I AM SADLY UNABLE TO SELL PDF INSTANT DOWNLOAD PATTERNS TO ALL EU (EUROPEAN) COUNTRIES (WITH THE EXCEPTION OF THE UK). AS THIS NEW LAW STATES ALL BUSINESSES WILL HAVE TO SUBMIT DETAILED VAT RETURNS INTO EVERY EUROPEAN COUNTRY EVERY QUARTER WHICH IS UNSUSTAINABLE FOR MY BUSINESS. I HOPE THERE WILL BE A U-TURN ON THIS LEGISLATION IN THE NEAR FUTURE.
I CAN STILL SELL TO CUSTOMERS LIVING IN THE USA, CANADA, AUSTRALIA, NEW ZEALAND, THE UNITED KINGDOM AND ALL OTHER COUNTRIES OUTSIDE THE EU.
