The Old Horizon


The Old Horizon logo with circle divided horizontally, dark on top, light below. The circle is inset into a light semicircle, with the horizontal lines aligning.Everything by The Old Horizon is handmade and designed by Emma Gaffney in the Peak District. You’ll find hand-dyed yarns in a range of weights and colors, handmade buttons, knit and crochet kits, and patterns. “My patterns are primarily for babies and children,” Emma says, “but there’s also patterns in sizes newborn to adult. All my patterns feature photo and video tutorials for techniques and stitches featuring in them so the patterns are as helpful as possible.”
