DSC_4477 2Inspiration Knits was founded by Louise Zass-Bangham. Louise loves designing accessories that will show off the colours in your yarn. And she loves giving you options so that you can make your project your own. Louise believes patterns should be clearly written and a pleasure to knit.

With a degree in textile design, Louise went to Central St. Martins College of Art and Design as a postgraduate in pattern cutting (pattern making). She has worked with some of London’s top catwalk designers, leading fashion brands and stylists. Louise has also worked in sustainable garden design and is an award-winning writer on the subject.

Taking time out to have kids prompted a return to handknitting. Her designs have proved popular on Ravelry, regularly featuring in the hot list. Knit Play Colour is her first book.

Louise also teaches a number of workshops through various shops and yarn shows. Check out the Workshops page to learn more.

You can download Louise’s stylish patterns as pdfs from her Ravelry store.

If you’d like to chat with others who are knitting Louise’s designs, visit the Inspiration Knits Facebook Page or Ravelry Group

  1. In case anyone is checking on this page too, yes I’d like to confirm Song of the Sea has indeed got charts as well as written instructions. I do like to offer the choice on something like this. Thanks for asking. X
