This triangle is then extended from one side of this triangle using a bias strip to create the full length of the shawl.

About Sarah:
Sarah was born in St. Albans, England and spent the early part of her life based in Hertfordshire. Taught to knit at the age of five, Sarah has always had a love of textiles and had a passion for dressing up as a child.

Having completed an art foundation course close to home she moved to Yorkshire to complete a degree in Fashion Design at Bretton Hall College, part of the University of Leeds.

Immediately after graduating, Sarah was offered her first job as a designer with a hand knit company. It was here she got to develop her skills in knitting, pattern writing and design. Sarah prides herself on the fact that since graduating she has always worked in the hand knitting industry.

Sarah’s inspiration has a tendency to be around garment shapes and she rarely works in more than one colour yet produces amazing wearable garments that explore and push the boundaries of shape and texture. Sarah is well known for her wearable garment designs with the innovative use of shape and texture.

Sarah has produced many collections for West Yorkshire Spinners including her most recent “The Croft – A Way of Life”, “Fleece – Family Collection”, “Fleece Bluefaced Leiceister DK – Riverside Collection” and “The Croft Aran – Shetland Colours”. You can find her on Instagram as “hattonknits”
