Hi, I’m Lily! 23 year old knitwear designer, occasional model and photographer, and long-time blogger.
JoliHouse.com began as my mum’s knitting & family blog, which became my fashion & lifestyle blog, which evolved into my travel blog, and has done a full 360 and is now a knitting blog once again.
In the intervening years this blog was my space to share outfits, travels, thoughts on life, university updates, modelling experiences, sustainability, and many a ramble. All of those posts are still online if you fancy an archive browse or a little travel inspo. I was fortunate to visit wonderful destinations over the years and documented my travels – solo and otherwise – right here. Oh to have the pre-pandemic freedom of European city breaks at 2 days notice!
Back to the knitting. Knits and purls have essentially taken over my life, and as a consequence this website, and you certainly won’t find me complaining. Since 2020 I’ve been a full time knitwear designer, with patterns for sale via Ravelry, Etsy, and under the Knitting Patterns tab of this site. My patterns are modern and well-fitting with little details that make them special – at least I’d like to think so anyway! Creating garments that make you feel GOOD is my main aim. Never underestimate the confidence boosting power of a puff sleeve.
Each design has a dedicated blog post with information about the pattern, test knitter photos to show the item on a range of bodies, and an option to purchase the digital download.
A few housekeeping points
All patterns are for personal use only and may not be sold or distributed – this includes finished items made using my patterns.
For pattern support or collaboration enquiries please EMAIL me on firstname.lastname@example.org rather than sending an Instagram DM.
