Contemporary Knits & Patterns

Welcome to my page of contemporary hand-knits, designed and knit by me! Some of these are what I describe as ‘Vandalized vintage’, the original inspiration having come from a fantastic vintage pattern, but re-written for modern day sizes and with a contemporary twist to the pattern. Others are original designs using recycled or vintage yarns, particularly vintage mohair. It’s fun to create designs which use the skills and talent of vintage pattern writers ( which I’ve learned over the years through knitting patterns from the 40’s, 50’s and 60’s) but make the most of contemporary yarns, needles and new techniques, including arm knitting. All of these have been knit flat, bottom up. Enjoy! (and if you want me to knit you one just get in touch through the contact page)
