Pattern Description:

I'm Louise, A british based designer working as a scientist by day and an avid knitter by night.

My aim is to create simple but classic socks in semi-solid and solid colours - suitable for men and women alike. All too often I have struggled to find sock patterns suitable for the men in my life which don't involve miles of stockinette so I decided to create a range of straightforward and elegant patterns, easily adaptable for men and women.

I love to support British Indie dyers and have a particular fondness for semi-solids and subtle colourways.
