Hello, my name is Sarah Gasson and I am the designer of the
Knitables Knit a Teddy range of knitted soft toys. I live in
Cardiff, Wales with my husband Lee and two children Thomas and
Hannah. Knitables really is a family run project; I get to spend
all day knitting (how lucky am I), Lee designs and builds my
website and Thomas and Hannah provide me with the inspiration
for my designs. They are also my biggest critics!
Knitables is dedicated to my brave and inspirational mum-in-law
Linda, who during her 13 year battle with cancer, raised
thousands of pounds for charity by knitting scarves and toys. It
was Linda who first encouraged me to design my own range of
knitted toys, as she was constantly looking for new things to
knit and was always so impressed with my designs and ideas.
Sadly, she is no longer with us, but our memories of her will
live on forever.
All my knitting patterns are sold in PDF format. This means that
the pattern is only available electronically; you will not
receive a paper version in the post. A big benefit is that it
allows you to get your pattern immediately after purchase. You
can view downloadable patterns on any device with an Adobe PDF
reader, so this could be your computer, tablet, iPad or even
your smart phone. Most computers come with Adobe pre-installed,
but should you need to install or update Adobe you can do so
The patterns are written in English and are very easy to follow.
They also contain a lot of photographs to help you complete your
project. All pieces are knitted flat on straight knitting
needles. You will need to be able to cast on and off, knit,
purl, work increases and decreases, change colour and sew seams.
Some of the patterns incorporate intarsia colour-work and as
such the pattern includes easy to follow colour charts.
