Following a four year fashion & design course at art school, Pat spent the next three years working as assistant designer to two London Couturiers. During this time Pat developed her interest in handknitted designing. Having been taught the art of knitting as a young girl of five by her Grandmother, Pat wanted to combine her love of fashion design with her skill for knitting. After several years developing her knowledge working with two British handknitting companies, Pat became a freelance designer.
From that point on Pat has had countless designs published in many of the leading British knitting magazines as well as having published two books of her own and contributed to many others.
Pat is passionate about shape and fit, as well as colour and texture. She has always strived to create beautiful designs that people enjoy making and wearing, taking inspiration from the world around her.
