My name is Louisa and I am a textile artist specialising in knitting. I sell my original knitting patterns in DK yarn, and also my bestselling Cable Knit Blanket pattern in super chunky yarn. There are patterns for cakes, bags, toys and cloths, including my 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.

Here is a pattern for our bestselling Kindle bag with matching iPhone bag.
It is worked as a flat shape with one seam.
The stitch pattern is called daisy stitch or star stitch, and the beauty of it is that no weaving of the yarn on the wrong side is required - it is not intarsia. But it looks more complicated than it is, which is always a bonus.
Daisy stitch gives a thick fabric which is ideal for cushioning your device.
Please note this pattern is an original design from Knitting Revolution and is for personal or charity use only.
