Hello there! My name is Louise and I have a true love for being creative, one of my favourite things is to sit with a notebook, my project bag and plan/create my next design.
I am an experienced textile designer – my background is in textiles and surface design, I am obsessed with knitting and crochet and have taught both to many students in the past.
On my website, you will find the following >
- Free knitting patterns
- Free crochet patterns
- Video tutorials
- New patterns added regularly
- High-quality handmade items
- The inspiration for your next projects!
I want to share patterns with you so that everyone can take some time out to be creative and enjoy getting crafty!
I have always been creative, ever since I was a little kid, I loved to draw and make things, learning how to knit when I was young.
I love to binge my favourite shows on Netflix with my knitting beside me, tea and Jason (my doggo) cuddling into my legs.
I am always knitting and try to develop my skills as much as I can.
Even though I enjoy the knitting and pattern writing process, I want to help you as much as I can to create beautiful items that you can wear or give as gifts.
All of my patterns are relatively easy for any beginner knitters and I have many video tutorials that can help you with learning new stitches or how to increase, decrease etc.
I also have a crochet video tutorial page that can help you with the fundamentals before you get started.
MORE ABOUT ME…
I am inspired by so many things, by nature, colours, patterns, textures and of course Pinterest!
My background is in textile design, and I have designed patterns (prints and knitted items) for various companies, but prefer to create fabrics through knitting and crochet, because I’m much more connected to that.
I taught students for a number of years in the UK, from FDA Textiles (19+) to A-Level art and design, graphics and textiles.
I currently live with my husband Fotis and our dog Jason in a traditional Greek village on the island of Corfu.
I divide my time between Greece and the UK, getting to enjoy both cultures.
But nothing beats eating homemade Greek food and walking around Corfu town with my two besties in tow.
MEET THE FAM
Meet my husband Fotis who models men’s knitwear and spends his weekends being my photographer.
He works long hours in the week running his construction company ConstructionCorfu renovating and building both residential and commercial properties around the island of Corfu, Greece, including building huge luxury villas.
He can speak 4 languages fluently and loves all Greek food.
Meet Jason – He is the model for all doggo knitwear and patterns.
Named after the actor Jason Statham, he delivers a good kick and slap when he wants your sandwich or to see what’s in your bag.
He’s my everyday office assistant and he loves cake Fridays.
