Back in 1995/6 I knitted a white cotton cot cover from a kit supplied by Annie Cole handknitting ltd. They did a good range of patterns for cushions and covers.

I have tried extensive google searches, and tired phoning the number I have but have found no trace of the company.

Can anyone tell me what happened to Annie Cole? are they still in buisness?

If not i have two questions,
Are the patterns still available from anywhere else.
What is the nearest replacement for Annie Cole white cotton. The pattern I have says use a 3mm needle, but not sure if I need double knit or 4 ply.
Please help. Can a buisness just vanishe without a trace?

Oh yes, knitting designers do go out of business as sole traders - Patricia Roberts for example, and Woollybear Yarns. She had a shop on Kensington Church Street at one time.
Agree with storm, that sounds like 4 ply. Debbie Bliss, Rowan, Sirdar - cotton yarns are widely available at the mo.

Thanks for your replies.

I would still like to track down some of the patterns if anyone knows where I could get them from.

I know this is over a year later, but I have some Annie Cole patterns and would sell them if you are still interested. I don't know how much to ask but we can discuss that. They are 4 ply. Some are cushions, some are cot and pram blankets and can be adapted as all you do is knit squares.I also have some border patterns.

I know this is a long time after but I have the Annie Cole traditional raised leaf pattern bedspread knitting pattern from a long ago Prima if anyone wants me to scan and send it. It is the same pattern as the cot cover you were talking of way back in 2008.
Thing is, I'm looking for suitable cotton to do it, obviously Annie Cole is no longer in business, are the 35 balls of cotton still available??
Wish I'd done this search much earlier!
