Miniature Knitting - Most Recent 3

Knitting for Dummies!

Although I never set out to promote any one stitch pattern book, I now find that I have dozens from Barbara Walker's books. There is a ongoing project to knit swatches of her patterns in colour - her illustrations are mainly black and white. Where I can remember the pattern, I have now added the stitch name and volume of her book to help the army of Barbara Walker fans.

New A video that shows me knitting in miniature to give you an idea of the size needles and thread that I use.

I know that a lot of people come looking for free knitting patterns from me. I'm sorry that none are written up and to be honest they wouldn't fit a doll anyway -the requirements for a mannequin are less stringent than a doll. I am loathe to sell patterns that may not fulfill other people's expectations, and to give away free patterns would be unfair on other people who are trying to make a bit of a living from their own patterns.
