Patricia Evelyn Hutchins (18 June 1942 – 8 November 2017) was an English illustrator, writer of children's books and broadcaster. She won the 1974 Kate Greenaway Medal from the Library Association, recognising the year's best children's book illustration by a British subject. The work was The Wind Blew, a picture book in rhyme which she also wrote. It shows how "a crowd of people anxiously chase their belongings" in the wind. On screen she was best known as the owner of the 'Ragdall boat' in the long-running children's series Rosie and Jim.
Hutchins was married to illustrator Laurence Hutchins, with two children. She wrote books for early readers that he illustrated.
