My name is Louisa and I am a textile artist specialising in knitting. I sell my original knitting patterns in DK yarn. There are patterns for cakes, bags, toys and cloths, including my bestselling cupcake range. I always write with the ease of the knitter in mind, with minimal seaming and clear instructions.
I come from a creative family of spinners, weavers, carpenters and knitters. My mother taught me to knit when I was very young and I have never stopped. My mother and aunts were all wonderful knitters and crocheters and always gave me plenty of inspiration. My uncle used to design and build spinning and weaving equipment, in particular the Barnett Drum Carder which is still considered the gold standard in hand carding machines in the UK. Although now retired, he recently made me some giant double pins for my extreme knitting project. I am very happy to be carrying on the family handcrafting tradition using the tools that he has made.

This is a knitting pattern for our Birthday Cake with Lit Candles.
Complete with flaming candles ready to be blown out!
Our cake is worked in the round in 2 pieces, and the seam will be hidden underneath the icing. So if you are a messy seamer like me, don't worry, it won't show.
Seed beads and bugle beads are used to finish. Main cake is stuffed with upholstery foam cut to size, and a little extra stuffing is place on top to give a nice curved shape. Thin wire is used to make the candles stand up.
It would make a very special gift for a special birthday, and can be personalised in many ways.
