Hello from Australia! You’ll pretty much always find me dreaming about my next favourite shawl - the accessory I most love to design, knit and wear. Otherwise I’ll be wandering about my vegetable garden, nearby bush or perhaps a little escape to the beach.
With a background in painting, I have a passion for colour and interesting design.
I design contemporary knitwear patterns, with a nod to retro and geometric design. Patterns that are straight forward to follow and fun to wear.

Petarli is a lovely little knitted necklace featuring a leafy design within an intricate lace pattern. Perfect for any season, use a lightweight fingering or lace yarn for a delicate necklace, or use a heavier yarn for a chunky version. This quick knit is a great project to use up leftovers in your stash and makes a lovely gift.
Choose from charted or written instructions - both are included for your convenience. Petarli's lace panel is worked from the bottom up. The I-cord strands are knit separately then attached to the finished lace and fastened with a button for a stylish necklace.
