My name is Louisa and I am a textile artist specialising in knitting. I sell my original knitting patterns in DK yarn, and also my bestselling Cable Knit Blanket pattern in super chunky yarn. There are patterns for cakes, bags, toys and cloths, including my cupcake range. I always write with the ease of the knitter in mind, with minimal seaming and clear instructions.
I come from a creative family of spinners, weavers, carpenters and knitters. My mother taught me to knit when I was very young and I have never stopped. My mother and aunts were all wonderful knitters and crocheters and always gave me plenty of inspiration. My uncle used to design and build spinning and weaving equipment, in particular the Barnett Drum Carder which is still considered the gold standard in hand carding machines in the UK. Although now retired, he recently made me some giant double pins for my extreme knitting project. I am very happy to be carrying on the family handcrafting tradition using the tools that he has made.

This is a knitting pattern to make Christmas baubles and balls in 7 different designs. It is an original design from Knitting Revolution.
Pattern includes beading, stripes, a simple cable, and sequins. Full beading instructions are given.
With a shiny bell attached to the bottom, these could be irresistable to your cat, but at least when they get knocked off the tree they won't break!
But baubles are not just for Christmas. Knitted plain using fluffy yarn in any colour, they make a wonderful decoration for any occasion. Arrange your funky fluffy balls in a row for unusual bunting, or place them on a mobile for a fabulous baby gift.
Very quick to make, so great for Christmas gifts or for your local fundraiser.
Exact size not important.
