About the Author

Jenny Occleshaw learned to knit, crochet, sew and embroider as a child. Crochet later became a perfect antidote to hours of music studies and sustained her through a nursing career. Jenny honed her pattern-writing skills while working for Patons and has since contributed patterns for publication to other knitting magazines. She is the author of the best-selling Fantastical Hats and Beanies, Tea Cosies, and Simply This.
