I’m a lifelong knitter, from a family of knitters, gardeners, seamstresses, and sailors (yes, even the men!) - who also happen to be doctors, scientists, priests, and businesspeople (yes, even the women!). I like to design baby blankets, accessories for children, adults, and the home, and garments for children and adults. You can find my patterns through my indie line here on Craftsy or in a variety of print and online magazines and books. I happily work with local yarn stores, crafters, and indie dyers: please contact me to start a conversation about how we can support each other!
I’m a certified knitting teacher, accomplished technical editor for knitting patterns, and in my daily life am an academic science librarian.
The Hugs & Kisses Purse is a little package of love all bundled up. At approximately 5 inches (12.5cm) square, and with a 16 inch (40cm) skinny strap, it is the perfect accessory for a night out on the town - with or without a date. The cabled Xes and Os give it the right amount of whimsy without being too heavy.
The pattern is designed for exactly one skein of Patons SWS (wool/soy blend) yarn, plus US 10 (6.0mm) needles and a cabling needle. You may need additional yarn if you make modifications and/or don't knit to gauge.
