Winter has finally arrived and C Percy Designs is very proud to release their girls Winter range, which co-ordinates beautifully with this season colours and styles. C Percy Designs has been making boutique beanies since 2009. Christine, the creative hands and pattern designer behind C Percy Designs, loves the meditative state that crocheting brings and the fact that she can tap into her creative side while
making stylish children’s outerwear.
Christine was taught to crochet by her mother when she was 6 years old. This tradition of teaching crochet to the next generation can be traced back to Ireland in the heyday of Queen Victoria and the boom, in what is now known as traditional Irish crochet. Inspiration for her beanie designs come from many places but primarily from her children, in particular her daughter. Her latest collection has been inspired by a small collection of vintage doilies and black and white photos of 1930s and 40s crocheted outerwear.
- You can find all of these gorgeous designs online at the C Percy Designs website.
