Important note to customers This pattern is free, but as of 1st January, 2015, due to new EU VAT laws, I will no longer be able to publish my paid patterns on craftsy. However if you want to buy any of my patterns you can do this via ravelry at this address: http://www.ravelry.com/stores/rian-anderson Ravelry is a really useful site for knitters and crocheters, and it compliments, but does not compete with, Craftsy. I do apologise for any disappointment or inconvenience this causes.

About me: I learnt to knit when I was 4 and have been happily creating ever since. I have a lot of fun designing patterns for sale - most are quirky things like dog tea cosies, dragon scarves and koala hats. I also make toys, children's clothes, and things for adults too. I published a book - "The Odd Ball Knit Book" on how to use up all your odd bits of stash to make fantastic garments: see my website: www.riananderson.com.
