LoveKnitting Visits Debbie Bliss!
Nearly all the knitters and crocheters in the world will have heard of the fabulous Debbie Bliss, her fabulous yarn range and inspirational pattern collection. Let’s meet the woman behind the magic!
Debbie Bliss has published over 35 books, 20 booklets, and has her own magazine. She has designed countless hugely successful yarn lines, and is quite simply, a knitter’s favourite! In 2015, she was awarded an MBE in the Queen’s Birthday Honours List for her services to hand knitting and the craft industry, and we talked to her about her life, that fabulous award, and more.
The current yarn range includes some classics and newcomers. Cashmerino Aran and Baby Cashmerino are favourites that never go out of fashion! Two beautifully soft every day yarns that combine wool, cashmere and a dash of acrylic to create a super soft yarn with a great twist in Debbie’s signature stunning colour palette.
Debbie Bliss Luxury Donegal Tweed is a fabulous aran weight tweed that is deliciously warm for favourite cardigans and jumpers, in a thrilling range of tweed shades, and for finer tweeds, its smaller cousin, Fine Donegal, a 4ply that is perfect for finer knits.
The Debbie Bliss chunky and super chunky yarns bring a riot of squishiness and warmth – from chainette Paloma, Paloma Tweed, and luxurious cashmere and yak Lhasa to the softer twists of Roma and Lara.
Debbie’s patterns are inspirational for all knitters, exploring textures and stitches and always ahead of the knitting curve in terms of technique. She writes for beginners and more able knitters too, teaching first steps to basic garments and projects, all the way to complex cabling, colour work and challenging construction. Her books are full of extra information to help you navigate each pattern – explore Debbie’s pattern books here!
We have a fabulous range of Debbie’s downloadable single patterns too, for each yarn for babies, children, adults and the home.
