I’m Libby, a knitting pattern designer living in beautiful New Zealand with my husband & our kids. It’s green & lush here with warm summers and cold-ish winters – perfect for knitwear!
I grew up with a huge love for handmade and homemade and get a kick out of knitting and sewing my own clothes. I love playing with clothes, although it took me a long time to know quite how much and accept that it was “okay” to love it. And I was well into my 30’s before I came to grips with what I actually wanted to wear!
I’m a restless artist and my style evolves with every year that passes but the essence of what I want to wear mostly stays the same. I feel like me in garments & accessories that are feminine without being fussy. I love layers, the freedom to roll up my sleeves and move and I find joy in bringing an outfit together with jewellery and accessories. My designs reflect that and I relish in clean lines, interesting details and gorgeous textures.
I learnt to knit and sew at a young age, making many of my own clothes through my teens and early twenties. I helped pay for my law & art history degrees with a little handmade business called “Lib’s pjs” making and selling pj sets and boxers to my fellow students.
