Hello

I am Louise Crowther, a British knitting designer who loves knitting dolls, toys and decorations – basically anything that is small and neat and you don’t need to worry about whether it will fit you or not when you’ve finished!

I have been involved with textile design all my working life, starting my career as a Jacquard designer based in Yorkshire, creating elaborate, woven cloth designs for the corporate market and high street fashion retailers.

My passion for knitting started about ten years ago when my eldest son wanted to learn how to knit, and although his interest in knitting lasted no longer than a week, I was hooked! Unable to find any knitting patterns for toys that really appealed to me, I decided to have a go at creating my own; and so began the next chapter of my design career. I have become one of those lucky people who’s hobby has turned into a day job, and now run the small but successful business Boo-Biloo.

My work has been featured in various magazines including Making Gifts and Simply Knitting and my first book My Knitted Doll will be released in October 2016.

Although I will always be a Yorkshire girl at heart, I now live in a lovely little town in Northamptonshire, where I divide my time between looking after my family, designing and knitting.

My new book KNITTED ANIMAL FRIENDS is now available!
