baby & child



The Coming Home Baby Set is a design I wanted to make so that I had something special to dress our baby in after birth. I wanted something which wasn't too heavy, and would be suitable for a boy or a girl. It is sized to fit from newborn, and suitable up to 3 months.
This design features a cosy knotted top hat and some cute booties, both of which you can finish off with a choice of a Simple edge, Scalloped or Ribbed.

Suitable for: Intermediate

  • 3.5mm hook

  • DK yarn: 50g to make one set

  • Scissors & needle

  •  A tape measure or ruler may be useful

  • Stitch marker

Children's tinker mittens


The Tinker Mittens are designed to be cosy, comfortable, fitted mittens for children. They are worked in the round from the top down to the cuff in one piece, and then the thumb is added last- no seaming!  Each size is written individually on separate pages, and there are some helpful pictures to go with the instructions.

There are 3 sizes, Small, Medium and Large, suitable from approximate ages 2-8

Suitable for: Intermediate

  • 3mm hook

  • DK yarn: 50g to make one pair

  • Scissors & needle

  •  A tape measure or ruler may be useful
