About Me


I'm Jill and I design knitting patterns for shawls, babies and dolls.

I am married to my very understanding husband David, who has to suffer wool all over the entire house and the constant clicking of needles, a grown up son, (strangely he moved out) a dog and we all live in rural Lincolnshire

I have been knitting and crocheting for as long as I can remember but have only recently become obsessed with circular knitting. The fact that I never know how it is going to look until it comes off the needles, is something that still excites me.

I was disappointed about the amount of circular shawls that were available, which lead me to create my own Maybebaby Designs which I hope you like and will enjoy making yourself.

I started selling on Ebay. Now my pattern are also available on Lovecrafts, Etsy, Ravelry or my sister website  for those who prefer instant download

Some of my patterns can be challenging but who wants easy, where's the fun in that. That is not to say that I haven't had my fair share of disasters and the inevitable un-picking of everything I have done but for every mistake there are successes too.

If this is for you, there is one little thing that is well worth mentioning. One of my best purchases has been Interchangeable needles such as Denise, Knit Pro or Addi. The ability to change needle size quickly, extend the length of the cord to suit and they even enable you to have a smaller needle on the left hand side to make it easier for the stitches to come of the needle, is a bonus.


Due to increased postage costs pattern will be sent in PDF format, this is usually the same day once payment has been received.

If you should have any problems with a pattern:

Please email me with the problem and I will get back to you as quickly as possible with a solution or click on the Contact Me link (for obvious reasons I do not give refunds).

If you have any suggestions on how I can improve my site then please let me know

Now the boring bit
