If you are fed up to the back teeth with being ‘promoted at’ over this season of ‘buy me, buy me NOW!’ advertising…then please amble away, pop the kettle on and pretend you never saw this post.
If, on the other hand, you love to make things for the little ones in your family and aren’t averse to supporting a poor independent designer, (subtle as a sledge hammer… lol) then please do peruse, pick and possibly purchase a pretty pattern! (too much?) 🙂

Lydia is a Knitting Pattern for the perfect little pinafore dress…lovely over a long sleeve top and thick tights for cooler weather and will look just as good worn alone with sandals in spring and summer. Can be worn as a tunic over a skirt or trousers as they grow… so lots of wear from your stitching.
Olivia is the prettiest of crocheted ponchos, with a difference. Cute cuffs make it far more practical than the traditional ‘free-flowing’ designs, but retains the lovely drape and comfort for which ponchos are renowned.Simply shaped by columns of gently curving clusters and easy increases, Olivia works up quickly and the lovely lacy hem and drawstring provides those special finishing touches that little girls love. Designed for a 2-3 yr old.
Chloe is a lovely versatile knitting design that can give so many different looks from the one pattern, and without any complicated calculations, just by changing the yarn and needle sizes. Choose long or short sleeves, variegated or plain yarn and matching or contrasting bands and you can achieve many different garments. Because of the construction of Chloe, it can also be made longer and worn as a dress or shorter and made into a bolero style jacket. Looks good buttoned up as a tunic over jeans or as a cardigan over a cotton summer frock. The pretty lace pattern isn’t too lacy and is very simple to work without being boring. A softly curled cuff and slightly flared hem add a stylish touch that means it is also flattering and a pleasure to wear.
Spindrift: (The spray blown from the crests of waves by the breeze) …The rolling waves and lush green Downs of the Isle of Wight inspired this lovely, crocheted, hooded jacket. Spindrift looks great on both boys and girls and would be wonderful in many different colour ways. Softly textured for a cosy feel and perfect to layer over a cotton t-shirt or pretty frock on cooler summer days.
Aimed at the intermediate maker or a very confident beginner.
Tillie is an adorable little short-sleeved frock for a 0-3 month old.. Perfect for parties, special occasions and every season. Looks lovely over a simple cotton vest for Spring and Summer or team with a pretty cardigan for cooler days.
The dress is softly flared and has a simple buttoned shoulder fastening for ease of dressing. A narrow satin ribbon decorates the waistline of the dress and ties at the back in a pretty bow and a simple buttoned flower adds the perfect finishing touch. Seen here in elegant French grey and pale pink, it would be equally as lovely in lilac/cream, deep lavender/pale sage or crimson and white for a festive look…(or indeed, any other combination you can imagine.) Crochet pattern.
A new collection of patterns for babies and children is planned for the spring which gives plenty of time for you to make these first…lol
If you have any questions or suggestions, please do comment & I shall endeavour to provide an answer (or a ‘witty’ retort!) … Just one of the great advantages of purchasing off someone you know 😉
Happy Yarning All…..
