Welcome to Fiona Morris Designs
I am a freelance knitwear designer producing my own original designs.
I particularly like to focus on the details and developing ideas for new techniques and designs. The patterns for my original knitwear which include garments, accessories, felted bags and bead knitting are available through my website and through my Ravelry Store. My most recent patterns can be found on my Ravelry Store which include the Textured Shawl KAL pattern and other new shawl and accessory patterns.
As a freelance knitwear designer, I have worked with a number of knitting magazines in the UK and teach a wide range of knitting workshops.
