I live on a tropical island called Penang which is one of the states in a country called Malaysia, but it does not stop me from learning how to knit. I knew how to crochet since I was 6 and taught myself to knit about 5 years ago and after a couple of projects, I began designing my own patterns. I just love the process of designing, from the imagining of the design to the drawing and even the math part of it. I love to wear something pretty and feminine and it is reflected in all of my designs. I have 2 small daughters that need a lot of attention besides my full time job, so I am happy enough if I can publish 3 patterns a year.View all patterns by designer (38) »
As you are aware that I always writing my patterns using 2 weight yarns, fingering/4 ply/sport and DK weight. The reason is because I always enjoy knitting with lightweight yarn, but I understand that most people don't. One exception is my Sage Cardigan Pattern. Sage Cardigan was my first pattern and the only pattern that was not written in 2 different weight yarn and not a top down pattern. Thus, I decided to redesign something similar like Sage Cardigan, but knitting using the top down method and this time I used worsted weight instead of fingering weight.
