I am a self taught designer, having spent many hours researching and reading about the skills needed to learn clothing design. Having had much experience sewing, gave me a lot of knowledge about how clothing is constructed, which is an essential skill in being able to design. Experience knitting, gave me the tools I needed to master knitting techniques and be able to shape the fabric in the way I want. Learning is an ongoing pastime, there are always new techniques to master.
I design clothing for children up to about 10 years and also adults.
I have been published in Universal Yarns, Willow Yarns, One Skein Wonders for Babies, as well as various online magazines and self published designs.
Kayla is growing up, and she still needs a basic white sweater! This one has pretty lace on the front and sleeves, and (optional) beaded ribbing to give it a little something extra.
Kayla's Big Sister is an updated version of my original Kayla sweater. I have adapted it to be worked top down and entirely seamless using the Contiguous Set In Sleeve Method developed by Susie Meyer (SusieM on Ravelry).
See my other designs for Kayla in sizes 6 (12, 18, 24) months.
