I am pleased to announce that my latest pattern has now been published.

Kris Kross Cowl

You can get it here on Ravelry or here on Gumroad.

“There is no glory in practice, but without practice there is no glory…”


One of the things I do to practice designing colourwork is to just create charts.

You can copy other existing charts, or freestyle with the grid. Many of the charts I create never make it any further than just practicing. But the more you practice, the more the look and composition of designs becomes natural.

Kris Kross came about from one of these charts. Part way through creating a chart something stood out at me, and with the addition of the open crosses, the design went in a totally different direction.

Jump by Kris Kross was playing in the background…
