My favourite things to design are shawls as they are versatile and easy to wear, you can have fun exploring new techniques through stitch patterns, colourwork or beading without it being too big of a project - and shawls always fit!
You can find my designs here on the website, on Ravelry, Lovecrafts and Payhip, and I have also had designs published in The Knitter, Simply Knitting and Knit Now magazines.
Why the name 'Under the Olive Tree Knits'?
Many of my patterns and yarn colourways are inspired by small Greek Island called Alonnissos. We visit every Summer and it's our favourite place to be.
Alonissos provides the backdrop to quite a few of my pattern photos and I do bank quite a few FO's up before we go so I can take advantage of the stunning scenery!
For me, there is no happier place to be than in Alonnisos, in the warm summer sun, surrounded by the olive trees and knitting to the sound of cicadas.
