Despite telling my mom years ago that I would never become a knitter, I took up a pair of needles in 2009 and haven’t put them down since! Knitting is an outlet for my creative energy and my desire to always be making things with my hands. My goal as a designer is to create unique knitting patterns; inspired by the beautiful, wild and rugged landscape of the Pacific Northwest--a place I loves to explore and am privileged to call home. I strives to write patterns that are easy to follow and simply enjoyable both to knit and to wear.
Keeping busy by day as a wife, mother of three and homemaker, I love to spend my evenings curled up on the couch with a cup of coffee, knitting, planning and sketching my never-ending design ideas. :)
If you have an questions about any of my patterns, would like to become a test knitter or to set up a trunk show, please feel free to contact me! I’d love to help!
Shaun is an adorable, soft sheep toy. This little guy is quick and easy to knit, shaped by short rows and requires hardly any yarn. A perfect stash buster project! Standing seven inches tall and eight inches long, he is knit in pieces and then hand sewn together. By placing heavy quarters in the bottoms of the feet, Shaun also stands up by himself--perfect for a well-played-with children's toy.
My daughter requested her sheep to be a black and white one, however you could very easily make this into any variety or color of sheep. There are so many to choose from!
