New Pricing for Books and Patterns

Two printed copies of the Any Yarn, Any Size Knit Hat Book

I have exciting news for anyone who is interested in my patterns and book that I have for sale. I have introduced a new system of pricing for my e-books, which offer a lower price initially, and you can pay whatever you want above that.

My crafting philosophy has always been to use whatever yarn you choose, or repurpose what you have access to. Whether your yarn be luxury hand paint, a nice budget yarn, oddments, or an unraveled jumper from the op shop. (My personal choice is to use other people’s discarded materials from the op-shop or recycle yard). Since my patterns are written to reflect this, I decided my pricing should too.

Check out my Payhip shop for the new much lower minimum prices, or pay whatever you choose to help support

Update on Where to Find my Knitting Patterns

As I can no longer sell my knitting patterns on Ravelry due to not being able to view the site, I’ve chosen to make them available on Payhip, so they remain available for anyone that would like to purchase them.

See my Knitting Books and Patterns for Sale page for more information on all the books and patterns I have available!

If you bought any of my patterns on Ravelry, you should still have them available in your library to download any time you want them. However, if you would like to ask any questions about the instructions, you’ll need to contact me here and I’ll be happy to help.


New Lace Edging Patterns for Knitters!

It’s been a while since I’ve posted any new knitting patterns, so today I’m sharing ten at once! These are all antique patterns from my collection that I’ve updated into modern knitting terms, charted and test knit for you.

I hope you enjoy this selection of lace edgings and insertions. I still have many more in my collection to add in the future.


New Knitted Lace Border Pattern!

Knitted lace border with eyelet pattern of double diamonds and pennant flags

This week’s knitting pattern is based on a knitted doily edging from 1884. The reason it took me two weeks to get this one online, rather than giving it to you last week is because I had to rework the way the diamonds transition from one to the next, and kept changing my mind about how to do it, which meant a LOT of knitting.

I hope you enjoy the new pattern for the Knitted Diamond and Flag Border.

If you enjoy knitted lace edgings, don’t forget to check out the whole collection! My collection of knitted collars (because they’re usually just big edgings), insertions and edgings.
