Louisa Harding studied Textiles for Fashion at Brighton University. During her third year she undertook a placement at Rowan Yarns, who published two of her first designs in Rowan Magazine No. 6. After graduation Louisa worked as in-house designer for Rowan Yarns, where she selected yarns, designed/wrote patterns and contributed to their publications. Since having children, Louisa has been working alongside her husband Stephen who photographs all her collections. Together they created the Miss Bea series of knitting books, inspired by their daughter Belle. As a result of the Miss Bea series she was very fortunate to be given the opportunity of introducing her own line of yarns and pattern publications in 2005. She enjoys the creative experience of playing with yarn, colour, texture and designing and photographing beautiful knitwear patterns.
