Hi, I’m Gillian, the person behind Loopy Handmade.


Loopy Handmade was created from my love of handmade crafts. Being creative has always been a way of life for me, I caught the craft bug at a very young age and my mission is to share my love of knit and crochet with you.


I am a Scottish designer who graduated from Glasgow School of Art with a BA Hons Degree in Printed & Knitted Textiles. Since then I have worked in the fashion industry as a designer for many UK high street retailers and as a developer for the internationally renowned brand Tommy Hilfiger.

I design patterns for the modern maker. I create simple and easy to follow patterns for those new to knit and crochet so you can enjoy working with them without any fuss. You can find my patterns on Etsy and Ravelry. 


All patterns have been tested by skilled fibre artists to ensure they are clear and concise. All patterns are written with US terminology and include some step by step photos and instructions.

I hope you enjoy working with my patterns as much as I enjoyed making them!

Don't forget to share photos of your finished projects, I've love to see them - use #loopyhandmade on Instagram.
