say hello to my first published pattern

(c) Practical Publishing Int
I have something raaaaather exciting to announce today lovely, geeky knitters - I have my first pattern published in a magazine! If you come across Bagmaking Essentials in the shop this month, be sure to pick it up, have a flick through, and heck even buy it - because, as well as a whole host of fun and creative patterns for sewing, crocheting, patch-working, and knitting bags, you will see yours truly featured towards the back with a knitting pattern for the cheeky chaps above!

This magazine is one of the titles that the company I work for publishes, and I was really excited to be asked if I wanted to write a pattern to be included in issue 4. My pattern is called Monster Pals and is for 2 fun phone cozies, one designed for a beginner/all-level knitter, and the other for the more confident knitter. Even though they are monsters, they aren't particularly scary, but I'm a firm believer that the best monster's are the friendliest in any case.

If you look carefully on the front cover above as well, you can spot one of the cheeky monsters! These guys were a lot of fun to design - it's not often I get to work to a design 'brief' and it presented a new, creative challenge which I really enjoyed tackling and working on. If you want to grab a copy of Bagmaking Essentials, head to your local supermarket, WHSmiths, or grab it online from
