I had a ball of Cocoon leftover after making a jumper, and wanted to make a hat for my friends baby girl for Christmas. All the other babies had a hat at some point from me, and I wanted to make something chunky but fun, that could be passed down if a little boy at a later stage! I picked up the needles and this just came out - it's fairly simple but it works nicely in this weight yarn I think.

My mum taught me to knit when I was 5 - I have early memories of sitting with a skein around my wrists while she wound it into a ball. I had a big imagination though and I suppose got interested in other things until I was older. When I was 21, I found myself at a houseparty, and one of the girls there had a bag of knitting. I thought it was so cool, I made her remind me there and then, and since that evening I’ve been hooked. I love the whole process of buying a ball of yarn and turning it into a beautiful garment. I’ve been blogging since 2008 about life, art and things I have been making and selling, and I have been designing for the last couple of years. I trained in pattern cutting and dressmaking and found that the skills I learnt developed into an urge to design knitwear. I’m currently putting patterns together my first book, some of which you can buy here or on my website. I also have a Ravelry group where people can share pictures of my designs, I would love for you to join! You can connect with me on Twitter, see what inspires me on Pinterest, and follow my blog at
