I have been designing knitwear for over 40 years, and in that time I have covered many aspects of knit design, including:

  • designing knitwear garments for retail and wholesale
  • freelance design
  • commissioned work
  • designing and writing patterns for magazines and 2 published books 
  • teaching hand and machine knit design at further education colleges
  • lecturing in fashion history and critical studies at degree level
  • historical research and writing
  • Designing and selling knitted swatches through an agent to manufacturers worldwide.

I am now working as a pattern consultant and technical editor, as well as a freelance designer.
