About Me

Kelly wearing a pink "Holly" hatHello! My name is Kelly and I live in a little village in the countryside of the north east UK with my fiance Terry and our two sons, 9-year-old Kaden and 2-year-old Rowan.

Like most people who knit I was taught by my Nana when I was 6 years old. My first adult career was in a punk band, playing guitar. The two didn’t mix! So I ditched the guitar for the needles and here I am!

I designed my first hat pattern in April 2011 and was hooked from that point on.

I’ve designed magazines including Let’s Knit! and Knit Now and I have a decent sized collection of knitting patterns in my repertoire now.

After becoming pregnant with my second child I started making baby clothes again too so RowRow and Kades was born.

I create beautiful, lightweight accessories and garments for you and your child. Almost everything has an intricate lace pattern so if you are sick of chunky knits, you’re in the right place.

I am always pottering about on most social media. You can find me in these places:

  • Instagram – for all the pretty things!
  • Facebook – for the latest designs, work in progress and behind the scenes gossip.
  • Pinterest – for beautiful things, elegant dresses, lovely food, and more
  • Twitter – for possible ramblings of a mad knitter!
  • Etsy – for my one stop shop….until I sort it out on here!

Want to know what other people have to say before you make the step to buy? Here are some of my latest reviews:

Shannon Steinacker: I LOVE this hat! It fits my 1 month old perfect but there’s still room to grow. It’s very well made and is great quality. It was packaged adorably, it came quick, and the seller was so sweet! Thanks so much!! I’ll definitely be ordering from here again!!!!

Giorgina Marna: I had been searching for a bonnet for my baby and came across Row Row and Kades and am so happy I did. The bonnet is super adorable. Knitted beautifully, great variety of color options and the yarn is soft and comfy. In addition Kelly is so super accommodating. Upon request, she made for me a matching set of gloves that came out perfect as well. I would highly recommend her shop and have already ordered another bonnet for a gift!

Vlad: Adorable booties, got the cream color to go with her church outfits along with a cream bonnet. Kelly worked with me and was totally sweet and punctual with my accommodations. Excellent customer service

afjohnson84: Stunning work and super quick and even adapted the design for me… amazing!
