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.

This is a knitting pattern for three gorgeous little keepsake bags. They are just the right size to hold something special, like chocolate or jewellery.
There are 3 designs in this pattern, based on a circular construction with double-drawstrings. All include knitting with beads. This is quite simple and full instructions are given in the pattern.
They are not knitted in the round, but three double pins are needed for the first few rows, with one seam to sew.
Quick and pretty items for the intermediate knitter.
Great for gifts and wedding favours.
Pattern is for personal or charity use only, not for resale.
