For those who would like to achieve colour without having to know complicated techniques. readers have sometimes queried the quoted measurements on my children's designs because they are comparing an adult's chest measurements with the actual measurements of a child's garment. which also allow for plenty of movement.

Older children can sometimes be overlooked when it comes to design and it has been a fresh chaUenge to create a range of hand knits that I feel will appeal to a wider age range of children. the garment is larger initially than is strictly needed. perfect for a beginner who will appreciate a sweater completed' before the enthusiasm flags. there are simple stripes in a hooded top (Bill) and hand and! leg warmers (Cosy). All the accessories are simple and the garter stitch scarf with pompons (Hattie) makes a great first project for a child to knit. with so many new knitters around. while for knitters who like more of a challenge there is a multi-patterned! poncho (R.

All the designs are knitted in my own brand of yarns. and more feminine designs tied with ribbon or edged with a frill in soft cashmere mixes .
