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 pattern for my extreme knitting giant cable knit blanket or throw.
This super chunky blanket is ideal for dressing your bed and keeping your toes warm. Or you could throw it across your sofa for TV snuggle time.
Each stitch is a double strand of super-chunky yarn, The oversized cables create little pockets of heat, so it's lovely and warm and it's sure to add impact to any room.
The pattern gives 3 sizes of blanket. The smallest (pictured) is 3 cables across, Queen size is 4 cables across, and King size is 5 cables across.
