I love to design knitting and crochet patterns that are cute, quirky, original and fun, as well as being interesting to make and stylish. I'm inspired by the beautiful Yorkshire Pennine scenery where I live and I enjoy being surrounded by beautiful crafts in my home.
I set up Wessenden Woollies in 2011 and rebranded to AlderSign Designs in 2014. You can follow my blog, get free patterns and offers as well as information on my designs at www.aldersign.com
This beautiful tam with its geometric patterning and gorgeous woodland shades is perfect for autumn and winter wear. Knitted in the round as one piece, it has a simple stranded charted pattern that is suitable for beginners and features a ribbed cuff.
Elizabeth Woodville (1437 - 1492) was the wife of King Edward IV of England. She was known to be very beautiful and played a large role in the war of the roses. She was thought to have been a witch and have magical powers as a descendant of Melusine the water spirit.
This pattern matches the Woodville Mitts.
