I love to knit - and crochet - and have designed knitting patterns for more than 40 years now...... As my partner is disabled I had to leave work and become a full time stay at home carer - this left me extra time to work on my knitting and crochet designs and for the last few years I have been introducing new patterns on a regular basis.
My first published book - 100 Tea Cosy Designs - is now available to buy from my craftsy store as a pdf. download and features a great range of tea cosies, phone covers, mug hugs, egg cosies etc. Everything from a Frozen theme Christmas Tree to my first ever cosy design, Ellie the Elephant.... all with simple row by row instructions -which is a feature of all my knitting and crochet patterns as I like to make them suitable even for those who have little or no experience.
As ive said I am a full time carer to my OH, a mum to 4 grown up children and Nanna to a rather large brood (see my profile photo lol) so no shortage of those to try out my patterns on.
Hope you will enjoy wandering through the designs in my store.
I designed this knitting pattern over 20 years ago and made the stunning layered tree tea cosy as a gift for my mother, family and friends.
It is actually very easy to make, there is NO knitting in the round, and I have tried to make all instructions suitable even for a beginner as they are mostly set out in row by row form - you can make 3 sizes of cosy with this pattern just by varying the needle sizes - and it is knitted with 2 strands of double knitting yarn so is quick to make. I have also included a pattern for an egg cosy and mug hug to compliment the tea cosy.
