Kate Oates is the designer for Tot Toppers & When I Grow Up. She enjoys designing hats and garments for babies and children in particular, these projects often reflect a whimsical spirit. Kate's When I Grow Up line is for those of us who are not tots, featuring a modern classic style. Kate also strives to add specifically to the growing body of knits for boys as she has three of her own! You can find her patterns at your local yarn store or online. She also does freelance work for a variety of publications.
In her non-knitting life, Kate has just finished up a PhD in Political Science from the University of Florida. She lives with her family in South Carolina, which includes husband Ryan, Jesse, Charlie & Oliver (3 very handsome Tot Topper's models) and beloved dogs Cooper and Lou. You might also see the Oates' clan at a Clemson football game. Go Tigers!
The transition from womb to world is a startling one newborns love to be snuggled up tight! This layette set features an oh-so-cozy matching cocoon and hat with a beautiful textured stitch and simple cabled detailing around the edges. Cocoon features a dip in the front for baby's face so that the back neck can be covered. One size fits babies up to about 6 monthsat which time they will be more about exploring than being swaddled. Cocoon is worked top-down with stitches picked up for
the cabled border. Hat is worked from the bottom up and shown in Preemie size on 5-day-old Oliver.
