I was inspired to design this cardigan while experimenting with the stitch pattern, which is very striking and needed a simple canvas to make the most of its appeal. Spirited is a cute cardigan with simple shaping, making it easy to pop on to the most wriggly baby! This sophisticated jacket is knitted in one piece to underarms, the aran motif gives a chunky look with less weight. The stitch pattern requires concentration.

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.
