Welcome to Tess Young Designs & Makes

Here at the online home of Tess Young Designs and Makes you can join me on the blog where I talk about knitting, cooking, gardening, textile heritage, natural plant dyeing and my knitting design process.

You can also browse my hand knitting patterns and find all the links to purchase online via your preferred pattern site, including Payhip, LoveCrafts and Ravelry.

Whether you’re here for the blog, where I encourage you to comment and share your experiences too – I love hearing from readers – or to browse my pattern designs, ‘Welcome’ and I hope you find what you’re looking for.

As of Jan 2021 the blog is having a little New Year makeover, so things may look a little different between visits, but hopefully it’ll soon be done and we can get back into our groove again. New content will still be added during this time so there will be changes of substance as well as style.
