I have been knitting and dabbling in various hobbies for as long as I can remember, and love experimenting with different types of yarn. My passion is for designing and knitting baby and childrens patterns - just love to create something new.
I am the designer, graphic artist / desktop publisher, (this is what I did as my day job) writer / editor and photographer of OGE Knitwear Designs.
My absolute ultimate would be to publish a few books, and also have my own brand of yarn, I adore Debbie Bliss yarn, especially Cashmerino, gives such great stitch definition.
I hope that I have produced some patterns that may inspire the young (and old) to knit !! Generally my patterns are for the beginner, I have tried to keep them simple, modern and practical, with a twist of individuality.
I hope you enjoy my designs, your feedback is most welcome!!

This lovely simple to knit jacket comes with the option of being knitted as a hooded jacket. I spent some time trying to create a pattern that would be very quick to knit using 8ply yarn, as well as being an easy pattern to follow, without using any complicated stitches, great for the beginner knitter.Would also make a stunning Christening jacket, if you substitute the couloured yarn with white or cream, and used beautiful lace ribbon or vintage ribbon.
