Child’s double breasted jacket with hood - Paris

This child’s double-breasted jacket has set in sleeves and a hood, and is worked in a textured rib stitch. Warm and stretchy, it will suit both boys and girls.

Merino Soft yarn is, as the name suggests, beautifully soft, making it a great choice for kids. Get the warmth and durability of merino wool, without any of the scratchiness. Merino Soft can be purchased from my Knitting Patterns Online website.

I have been addicted to knitting for over 35 years (I started very young!) and I love being able to take a ball of yarn and a pair of needles and make something gorgeous and individual yet practical.

As a child I designed and knitted clothes for my toy elephants (elephants are my other obsession), during high school I knitted baby clothes and sold them at local craft markets then during my university days I knitted for a local yarn shop. While knitting was my passion, at that stage I never thought of making it my career.

After spending 10 years in the medical profession I came across a job ad for a knitting pattern design writer and suddenly I realised it was possible to combine my passion with my work. I was lucky enough to get that job and I have been working as a pattern writer, pattern designer and proofreader ever since.

As well as creating my own designs, I continue to work for yarn companies in Australia and overseas.

Along with my love of knitting, I hold Diplomas in both Comprehensive Writing and Professional Book Editing, Proofreading and Publishing.

I love what I do and I hope you will enjoy knitting my patterns as much as I have enjoyed creating them.
