Kate Oates is the designer for Tot Toppers & When I Grow Up. She enjoys designing hats and garments for babies and children in particular, these projects often reflect a whimsical spirit. Kate's When I Grow Up line is for those of us who are not tots, featuring a modern classic style. Kate also strives to add specifically to the growing body of knits for boys as she has three of her own! You can find her patterns at your local yarn store or online. She also does freelance work for a variety of publications.
In her non-knitting life, Kate has just finished up a PhD in Political Science from the University of Florida. She lives with her family in South Carolina, which includes husband Ryan, Jesse, Charlie & Oliver (3 very handsome Tot Topper's models) and beloved dogs Cooper and Lou. You might also see the Oates' clan at a Clemson football game. Go Tigers!
A twist on the basic henley, this sweater has"layered" waffle long sleeves. Sweater is knit from the bottom up, in the round with extra length in the sleeves and body for growing. Long sleeves are worked separately then attached to the short sleeves seamlessly. Extra Waffle repeat is easy to memorize; this is a great first-sweater project. Check out the matching Toasty Waffle Hat and Toasty Waffle Pants designs for a full ensemble (patterns sold separately).
