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.
TODAY'S FREE PATTERN - I do one of these each month so visit my listings regularly to get your free pattern.
One of my earlier designs, an original pattern, copyrighted and written with row by row instructions, for 3 sizes of tea cosy. There is a simple knitted base with lovely knitted fruits and foliage. You will require a little toy stuffing to finish off this cosy for stuffing the fruits. Knitted in double knitting yarns on standard single pointed needles and with no complicated jargon. Suited to any knitter able to knit, purl, increase and decrease. I have designed patterns for over 40 years and am happy for you to make my designs (even to sell) provided the design is accredited to Pamela Lang of The Knitting Pattern Shop. Thank you.
