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!
Colorful, reversible and easy to knit, this adorable blanket will be a favorite both to create and to love. It's worked all in one piece with no stitches to pick up. This is a great first project for beginners, and can be done with fewer colors to make it even more simple. Shown with the Favorite Cap (pattern sold separately).
