Woodland Fairy Jacket

Little Miss M beautifully modelling my latest pattern to go live.

Oh my word I’m so excited to be publishing this pattern today! It has taken years for me to develop and test.

Special thanks go to Sheila at Sewchet for test-knitting it for me. And here it is!!!!  Hurray!



and Etsy:


The pattern is for a toddler Aged 1-2

But as you can see in the top photo it has lasted well. I always make the arms a generous length and all my grandchildren seem to get a few years wear out of their yarny  tops.

The inspiration came from this amazing book:

‘Knitted Pirates, Princesses, Witches, Wizards and Fairies’ by Annette Hefford

The publishers kindly gave their permission for me to develop and sell the pattern so long as I credited the book. There are so many fabulous patterns in the book – well worth a look.

I have set up a Facebook page for sharing progress, finished articles and other favourite faerie patterns


I do hope you like it. I’m planning to publish the pattern in other sizes as soon as I have tested them.

Just published in time to put a link on Cathy’s  ‘Knit and Natter Friday’  post


Rachell’s Yarn Along.

  3. That’s adorable. I know my mum would love to make this, but my daughter is too big. She’s been trying to turn her into a fairy since she was born!

  14. Utterly gorgeous, but how do I explain to Little Miss F that at three years old she is too big?

    Adorable!!!! And even more adorable is the model. I’m sure the faerie jacket will be a great success. When they were young, my girls would have loved them, and I can picture them flitting around in them. As faeries do 😉
