About Little Precious Stitch

About us

classics inspired modern designs. baby clothing and accessories

1. When did you learn crocheting and knitting?

My mother taught me crocheting when I was in primary school. I made charms and pencil cases to give away to my friends then. During my college year, I learned knitting from a craft shop owner and YouTube. However, I left the hobby aside for many years and picked them up when I was pregnant with my daughter. And I have never stopped since.

2. What inspired you to start Little Precious Stitch?

I started designing patterns when I was pregnant. I want to shower my dear baby with dainty clothing and accessories purposely designed for her. This blog is established as a platform to share the timeless classical designs with modern flair. 

3. Tell us about your designing process.

I am inspired by many things, the colours of the yarn, the nature and simply everything around me. I like to incorporate classical stitch such as cable into my designs. Seaming is a nightmare for me, and it can take ages for me to seam pieces together. I love seamless patterns, so all of my sweater pattern (well as for now) are constructed in a way to minimize or avoid seaming.

I like to decide which decorative motif I want to incorporate in my design first. Next, I would consider how to incorporate the stitch into a design’s construction. I also like to make my patterns customized to the liking of crafters. Therefore, I add variations such as different hemming methods or cuff designs in the pattern.

4. What is your favourite yarn to work with?

As a person from a tropical county, I prefer natural fibre like 100% cotton or yarn with a high percentage of cotton. For baby clothing, I prefer thinner yarn, like DK and sports. It feels more delicate overall in comparison with thicker yarn.                                                                                        Do you have other obsessions aside from yarn crafting?

Absolutely! I love coffee, Japanese craft books, hand lettering, bullet journaling, and I’m learning sewing baby clothing. I guess I don't have the patience to make adult clothing. LOL!

5. How do you find time to crochet and knit?

To find ‘me’-time for crafting is hard for a mom who works full-time is hard, I have to admit. Waking up early (for me 6sm) and pre-planning in my bullet journal help tremendously. I usually indulge in knitting, crocheting, and pattern write-up when the baby naps and in midnights.

6. What camera are you using?

I don't own a fancy camera. I just use my iPhone SE to snap all photos. Emil Parkalis shares tonnes of tips on how to snap photos like a pro on
