Highly Detailed Patterns
Whimsical Designs

Welcome to Marie Mayhew Designs. I now have over 31 patterns, a couple of kits and few of my favorite tools available for sale.

Knitters have found my patterns fun to knit up and even more fun to embellish.


A NEW Pattern Line.

Along with my 'knit & felt' patterns, see below, I have just published the first, Pumpkin Patch, in my new line of knit patterns. No felting required! Same attention to detail without the need for felting. Check back for more additions to this new line.


What is Knit & Felt?

'Knit & felt' refers to the process of knitting something (usually from a pattern design) using 100% wool yarns and larger-size needles to create a large, sloppy-looking knit creation. Next, you throw the knitted piece into your washing machine and deliberately shrink it down to the desired size. A perfect felted canvas wooing you to embellish: needle felting, embroidery, beads and more!

NOTE: Although I use needle felting for further embellishing purposes, my designs are NOT needle felting patterns.

Come discover my love for detail in each and every pattern in clear and concise directions.

NEW! Pumpkin Patch


The Words That Matter Most.

Patricia from New York says, "I cannot thank you enough for the wonderful snowman pattern!!! It's perfect and fail proof! I knit an army of Marie's felted snowmen for Christmas gifts this year and next year . . . the felted ornaments!

Vickie from Wisconsin says, "I just love Marie's knitting patterns. I am my happiest when I am knitting them. My house is filled with happy little creations from her patterns. Thanks so much for creating these wonderful patterns!"

Nikki from Florida says, "Marie's patterns are just adorable and the instructions are clear for them. By incorporating needle felting and embroidery it made them even more creative!"
