Annie Cole knitting patterns

(27 Posts)

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?

Hello, I am Annie Cole's daughter. My sister somehow just came across this thread and forwarded it to me incase I may be able to help any enthusiastic knitters. Sadly my mother passed away in September after a long struggle with dementia. Her house was packed full of Victorian patterns and everything you could imagine to do with embroidery, knitting and crafts. We saved some of it but sadly most of it had to go. However I think I still have the patterns and so should be able to photograph them if anybody wants a copy.
It was so lovely to see that people were still interested in her designs. She absolutely loved her work and her army of knitters, she was never found with idle hands. She was a fabulous person. Laura

I have a raised leaf pattern I can let you have. I don't know how to do pics on here. It is actually an old Sirdar one, I think. The one where you make the leaf in th corner and put those four corners together.

For Annie Cole check out the pattern section on Ravelry.

Also Patricia Roberts is still going and trading in Kinnerton St, SW1.

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!

Hi I know this is nearly 2 years later but I am interested in anything you may still have for sale. I am also interested in any information anyone may have regarding Annie Cole Traditional Hand Knitting. Many Thanks

fjo59andahalf Wed 30-Sep-09 21:12:13

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.

Frances, Shropshire

Thanks for your replies.

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

Marina Fri 12-Sep-08 13:49:23

4 ply

maltloafeater Fri 12-Sep-08 13:48:53

It says 7 stiches= 1 inch over plain knitting

Marina Fri 12-Sep-08 13:48:13

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.
