There's more to handmade than granny squares. A slighlty different approach from a fashion/product design perspective. Using the textile element with practical and simple designs solutions to provide you with the info to make cool stuff that you will use.
I'm a trained designer pattern maker. I've been making stuff for as long as I can remember. I've worked for many large UK fashion retailers but had to give up my job to have a family, so now I do it for myself... and share it with you.
Time to cosy up with another version of my Bear Hat
This one is a slightly different fit to suit the style and a little more versatile - possibly more suitable for a boy as well as a girl, having said that, a few older girls - even women have expressed a keen interest.
It uses the same double strand of fur/eyelash and 4ply yarn as it's such an excellent combo for cold weather - not heavy, and ultra warm, with the Trapper style flap this time, to keep those little ears cosy. Well, I say little ears - it comes in sizes up to adult. Who says only the kids should get to wear the fun stuff?
It knits up on big needles in only a couple of evenings, and makes a great pressie - perfect as a Chridstmas stocking filler.
AND..... with some facepaint and a steady hand it can become a quick Haloween Werewolf or Witches Cat costume, or for any other dress-up occasion.
