My name is Amanda Berry and I love knitting, sewing and anything crafty!
I started designing my own toys as fluff and fuzz in 2010, and my knitting and sewing patterns have been featured in Handmade Living, Craftseller, and Let’s Get Crafting Magazines.
My knitting patterns are for knitting on straight needles (no awkward knitting in the round). All my patterns are written so that they are easier for beginners to follow, and include lots of photos and instructions to help you.
Below I have tried to answer some of my frequently asked questions, but please do get in touch if you are still unsure! I am always happy to help!
WHERE CAN I BUY YOUR PATTERNS?
You can buy my patterns from several online stores, please visit the ”buy my patterns” page on my blog for all the links.
For instant downloads (no waiting for the postman or emails!), please visit Craftsy, Lulu and Ravelry.
For patterns sent by email, please visit my Etsy, Folksy or Misi stores. I endeavour to send your patterns to you by email within 24 hours of payment.
I AM A BEGINNER KNITTER, CAN I USE YOUR PATTERNS?
I want to make toy making easier for newbie knitters, and the information in the store listing will include the different knitting techniques needed to make each toy. To help you, every pattern has:
- row by row instructions, so you won’t lose your place,
- instructions on the knitting abbreviations used,
- a list of materials,
- photos of the finished toy, and
- photos of the construction process, with detailed instructions.
And I am ready to answer any questions as you make your toy, either through email, store messages or you can write a comment on my blog.
ARE YOUR PATTERNS KNITTED FLAT OR IN THE ROUND?
All my patterns are knitted flat, but most can be converted to knitting in the round. I know a lot of people hate seaming, but I wanted beginner
knitters to enjoy my patterns, and knitting in the round can be tricky for newbie knitters.
HELP! I CAN’T FIND THE PATTERN I AM LOOKING FOR
If you need help finding what you are looking for, just get in touch and I will be happy to help.
DO I NEED A SEWING MACHINE TO MAKE YOUR KNITTED TOYS?
No, all the toys are sewn together by hand. You will not need a sewing machine to sew them together, just a darning or tapestry needle.
CAN I SELL TOYS MADE FROM YOUR PATTERNS?
I have no objection if you wish to sell finished toys made from my knitting patterns, provided I am given credit as the pattern designer. These patterns are intended for personal use, so you are not authorised to sell the pattern itself. I encourage items knitted from my patterns to be sold for charity fundraising purposes.
ARE YOUR PATTERNS IN ENGLISH?
All patterns are written in English, and use English knitting terminoogy. I include a guide to the knitting abbreviations and techniques in my patterns to help you, as well as a knitting needle size chart.
If you have any questions about your patterns, I am always willing to help.
DO YOU HAVE ANY FREE PATTERNS?
For some free knitting tutorials and patterns, please have a peek at the “free stuff” page on my blog.
DO YOU SELL THE FINISHED TOYS?
I am sorry, but I am currently not taking any custom orders owing to my other commitments to magazines and also studying for my fashion degree.
