Hello from Australia! You’ll pretty much always find me dreaming about my next favourite shawl - the accessory I most love to design, knit and wear. Otherwise I’ll be wandering about my vegetable garden, nearby bush or perhaps a little escape to the beach.
With a background in painting, I have a passion for colour and interesting design.
I design contemporary knitwear patterns, with a nod to retro and geometric design. Patterns that are straight forward to follow and fun to wear.

Elinya is a large, cosy, striped shawl. squishy garter stitch makes this a snuggly winter accessory, and the decorative picot border along the curved edge gives it a delicate flair. This shawl is long and wide, narrowing to a curved point at each end, making it perfect for draping over shoulders or wrapping several times around your neck. Elinya is worked entirely in knit stitch, making the garment a great beginner's project or excellent TV knitting.
Width at centre 15.5"/39.5cm
Top edge 75"/190.5cm
Bottom/picot edge: 90"/229cm
