About Knit 9
As a life long knitter and collector of beautiful yarn and fabric, I have always been surrounded by lots of each. For years I very much classed myself as a cat person and so the two never really married up, as our cats are reluctant to even wear collars for anything more than ten minutes at a time....
My love of dogs began in 2011 when, after months of research, we chose our first beloved Cavalier King Charles, Elsie. She was the most gentle and sweet soul, tiny and truly special.
Lois came home in November 2018 and turned our world upside down - seemingly literally at times! She is an exceptional ball of energy and wit and quickly grew into the most stunning puppy.
I posted a few of her puppy pictures of her on my own social media pages and the response was enormous. Keen to avoid spamming my feeds with endless dog posts, I decided to set up her own account. After just six weeks on Instagram @loisthecavalier had over 1000 followers!
During a cold snap, I decided to knit Lois a little scarf in super chunky yarn. This was followed by a couple of cotton bandanas using fabric I had found in a craft shop and just bought because I loved it. Several of her Instagram followers started to ask me about the things she was wearing and that is how Knit 9 began.
As I buy such small quantities and can never guarantee I will be able to get the same fabric and yarn again, each item is very limited and therefore unique. This means that we are constantly adding more designs - keeping us very busy making each handmade item to share with like-minded 'pawrents' and I couldn't be happier about it!
Thank you for visiting our shop. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
