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 made Daisy Cow to match some salt and pepper shakers many years ago, she has evolved over time with the addition of her wiggly eyes and pink bows in her tail (entirely optional of course) You can make her in traditional black and white or of course any other colours you fancy. She is made using double knit yarns and is very easy to make without any complicated knitting involved simple shaping and following the row by row instructions in the pattern will ensure that even a novice knitter will get a great little tea cosy for their own kitchen or as a special gift for a friend. You can make daisy for three sizes of teapot so lots of scope and if you wish to make her to sell at fairs or for charity thats fine - just not commercial use of my design please.
