looking for knitting patterns

My name is Els, i'm from belgium and i'm new here.
First of all ... i'n very sorry if my English is not so good!!! i dont
use it
very often.
I work at home taking care of children who's parents are going to work
all day.
At this moment i've got 9 children and two of my own.
I love to knit! At this moment i'm knitting a bear for all of my
children. that
is why i need your help. I was knitting the paterns by
designer stitches
(popcorn bears) but they've stopped there production.
I've looked everywhere but
i dont find the pakkets anymore.
So far i've got patterns for
popcorn butterscoth (and all simular bears in other colors)
knitted soufflé
Fudge the cat
But i'm still looking for
Pickles the hedgehog,
barly the mouse
Is there anyone who can help me? Scan the patterns and mail them to me?

stitching to swap
for knitting patterns.
thank you very much

Hello Els, my name is Bernadette, I live in Scotland. I have managed to find out that Designer Stitches has gone out of business and their knitting patterns are rare but there are people advertising on various forums to swap the knitting patterns they have for those that they want.
One person has knitted all the popcorn range except for "Fudge the Cat" which she wants. She is advertising on the forum at

you contact her she may be able to help. Good luck in your search.

Hello Bernadette,
thanks for your suggestion. I've registered on the johnsoncrafts forum but i dont have acces yet. I can read everything but i can't reply or make a new tread on my own.

It's not very easy to find those patterns. I could not imagine it would be so difficult.

I really appreciate what you are doing for me.

Hi Barbara,
many thanks to you! It's better to understand in English than Italian! The only one i dont have of the ones they sell is Barley the mousse but someone here in Belgium promised me she would make a copy for me. So i'm still looking for Hedgehog and Biscuit and i didn't see them on the italian side.
Hope to find them!

I'm just glad I could help and hope you manage to get the patterns you want. Keep checking in on the group as I'm sure you will be able to provide information to help someone else in the future.
I'm a great believer in "pass it on" especially the good things that happen. :-)
All the best Bernadette
