THE KEYSTONE CROP

Well, hey friends! How are you doing on this fine Monday? I’m trying to take a little breather after what turned out to be a fairly busy and productive weekend, the highlight of which was the release of my second garment knitting pattern – the Keystone Crop. The story of the Keystone Crop is a long one, to be honest. Back in the summer of 2017, I got my hands on a couple of balls of Debbie Bliss Cotton Denim DK, and knew that I wanted to knit some vests for the hot weather.  ...

KNITTING UPDATES, STORIES

FINDING MY SIGNATURE STYLE

If you’ve been around for any length of time, here or over on my Instagram, you’d probably think that I’ve got a pretty good idea of my style. There’s a clear aesthetic, that’s for sure, and you’re unlikely to see me stray too far away from my signature grey knits and white space in the foreseeable future. But recently I’ve been thinking more about my style as a designer. I follow so many great knitwear designers on Instagram, and while I know  ...

KYLA PULLOVER IN WATG SHINY HAPPY COTTON

I’m not sure what to talk about first, the Kyla Pullover knitting pattern or the Out of Space Dyed – 101Β  Spots yarn. Both of these things have my heart, and they both came together in perfect formation to give me the inspiration I’d be searching so long for. When I first laid eyes on this yarn, I think my heart may have almost skipped a beat. It was some time ago, and Knits Please was fairly young so I’d not yet discovered much yarn that really fit my brand. This  ...

May Knitting Update

Seriously, it’s the end of May already? How did this happen? Last thing I remember I was feeling super productive with my March knitting update and suddenly two whole months have gone by! Now, I know you guys are around here for the yarn-y goodness, but let me give you a little life update before I dive in… I’m writing this from the dreamy new sofa (in my favourite shade – grey, of course!) in our new flat. We moved out of our house on 12th May, so the weeks before  ...

THE ROLL NECK VEST

It feels like this one’s been a long time coming. I first knit a version of this vest way back at the start of 2015, and over the past few years I’ve adapted and tweaked the design to get to where it is today. It’s been a real passion project, and one that’s found its place firmly close to my heart, so sharing it with the world is both exhilarating and terrifying in equal measure. As my first garment knitting pattern, this vest has also taken me on a whole host of  ...
