Gypsycream aka Pat A

map-pin United Kingdom

I'd like to introduce myself, I'm Pat aka Gypsycream. I use this name as it was given to me on a craft community forum over 15 years ago. The discussion was something like "if you were a biscuit what would you be and why". I couldn't think of a reply and someone suggested Gypsycream as it was hard on the outside but soft and creamy inside. The name stuck and when I started designing the good people from that website suggested it as a designer name.

All yarn! and grandchildren who inspire, delight and amuse me every day.

I have been a crafter since I could remember but never really felt satisfied with anything I created, always wanted to change a little something. I found the best way to go was to design myself. Never thought of sharing my designs until recently after so many people asking "where did you get that pattern?"

My mission is for the knitter to create one of my designs that they are completely happy with, I write a simple pattern, no abbreviations, row per line
