PATTERN DETAILS

The Mini is an classic car. I have tried to be as accurate as possible using wool. I would be lying if I said this is an easy knit. There is shaping, icord knitting, colourcharts, and quite fiddly sewing up. But I think the final results are worth it. If you don't want to knit the Union Jack roof, then you can do a plain roof version. The main body of the car is knitted in three sections. Then there are wheels and wheel arches to sew on, as well as the headlamps, bumpers and numberplates. So there is a bit of work, but you will end up with your own British icon. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Knitting Sewing SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 14 cm by 8cm by 9cm

The inspiration for my knitting patterns often comes from nature. I love little knitting projects, and try my hardest to be realistic with my plant and animal designs. Often my projects start from something very personal: my own house or my husband's first car. Then I develop them into something that I think will be appealing. I live on the outskirts of London, and work part-time at a local school. My own children are always doing something creative. At school I love the days when we get really messy.
