Hi, I am Julie Richards, designer/maker and business owner for The Little Knit Kit Company in the UK. I live on the beautiful Coast of the Gower Peninsular. I am married and have a wonderful son, Roberto and a very fluffy cat called Jesse. I started knitting at the age of 6 and fell in love. I went on to study a degree in Classical Music but I came back to my passion for design and knitting when I was confronted with a major health problem which forced me to give up my teaching career. I have developed a lovely range of knitting kits for beginners along with some ready to download knitting patterns. Some other work include commissions from the Wordsworth Trust and The National Gallery of London. I am currently designing for the magazine 'Let's Get Crafting' which is great fun! Please browse through and drop me a line if you should need any further information or help.
Thanks for popping in and taking a look.
Based on one of my best selling little knitting kits 'Black Cat Starter Knitting Kit' I developed this pattern simply because I had so many requests! My inspiration originally came from my very own black cat called Jessie. I first developed this pattern back in 2009. Once knitted up this cutie can also be personalised. Please do not give to any child under the age of 4years due to the small choking parts ie. eyes, bell. You can always change these to make it more practical for this age group.
