I kept trying to change the name, but everyone who saw the sweater just said "awwww Fat Kitty" so it stuck. Fat Kitty is a big, bold, easy to wear sweater featuring The Fat Kitty, The Fat Bunny or The Fat Bear. These fun characters are easy to knit and will appeal to children of all ages with their simplicity and rounded cuteness! This sweater is fun to knit and fun to wear, worked in the round from the top down and then worked flat for the intarsia section, you can choose to work short sleeves for a layering garment or long sleeved for extra warmth. Suitable for the advanced beginner onwards, the pattern contains 3 full sized charts and tips for successful intarsia work.

I love designing knitwear for babies and older kids too, I'm inspired by the world around me, whether it's the green bush covered hills where I live, or the bright city lights and sparkling harbor. I try to find a way to incorporate traditional, modern and whimsical elements into every garment I design. Children need to be comfortable and relaxed in their clothing, they need the opportunity to jump and run and paint without restriction. I try to design with these qualities in mind.
