In 2010, I returned to college to study Fine Art. I graduated with an Honours Degree in Fine Art in 2014. Since then I have been selling my hats at an outlet in Sligo. Due to the success of my hats, I launched LouiseKnitsHats.com
As an artist I love knitting. I have used my artistic skills to give my hats a contemporary Irish interpretation of three traditional styles, the beanie, bobble hat and slouch. They appeal to buyers who like to be original and buy authentic, craft products.
The hats are designed and hand-knitted by me in Sligo so you know that great care and attention has gone into each one to ensure a quality product.
The choice of colours used to design these hats are inspired by the great palette of colours in the Sligo landscape. I hope you enjoy wearing these hats as much as I enjoy making them.
