That motto’s true of all my patterns – whether they’re lace socks or colourwork hats. Knitting is something that I started doing to help my mental health, so I design knitting patterns that are easy to follow and produce things that look way trickier than they are.
Which leads to the second unofficial Woolly Badger motto: “If it ain’t fun, don’t knit it.”
For me, knitting’s all about the process. And if that process isn’t an enjoyable one, then there’s not much point to it, is there?
One last thing – 10% of all Woolly Badger pattern sales goes to Bluebell Care, a perinatal mental health charity based in Bristol, UK
