This very cute and serviceable kimono top is easy to knit. The Fair Isle pattern was inspired by a Japanese quilting block I came across recently, meaning 'parent and child'. I have chosen navy and white for this knit as traditionally these are the colours used in Sashiko designs, another hobby of mine!! The Fairl Isle charts are well explained and simple to follow.

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!!
