Unique handmade designer gifts and knitwear from Scotland.

Quality knitwear for all the family from Brawlbin Crafts. All hand knitted in the Far North of Scotland.
Preemie baby sets, baby girls and boys sets, christening gowns, cardigans and hooded tops, toddlers, adult hand knit hats, wrist warmers, socks, shawls, wraps men's kilt hose and men's fishermen sweaters.
Something for every member of the family.
Due to family health issues custom orders are no longer available on larger items though I can fit small items in at times.

Quality handmade designer jewellery, hand knitted and beaded brooches all handmade by me.
A range of unusual gifts that will be expanding.

About me

I'm Mel and I live in the very far north of Scotland out in the countryside which I love.

Due to lack of employment opportunities and needing to stay at home for personal reasons I decided to become my own boss.

I have been knitting now for over 30 years and enjoy trying new designs or trying new crafts so starting my own business selling my hand knitted and beaded gift items was the perfect solution.

I started my business on 17 March 2010 selling my items in a local shop. After a year and an ever growing pile of stock I decided to try selling online instead where I had the chance to reach more people.

I started with adult knitted accessories which then expanded into a large selection of hand knit babywear which resulted me in opening my 2nd Etsy shop Brawlbinbabyknits on 26th June 2011. Over the following year I moved my adult knitwear into that shop to try and keep my crafts separate and with a name change to Brawlbinhandknits it has kept me busy.
Due to a new venture supplying a gift shop with gifts and knitwear I have had to downsize my Etsy shops and have put all items into this shop only. This makes it much easier to keep track of everything and because I am hoping to get my own website up and running easier for customers to find me.
You can off course still read all the lovely reviews left by happy customers

No matter how small or big an order, I get such a thrill knowing that something I have taken time over and carefully made has been appreciated and is off to a new home either here in the UK or anywhere else in the world.

All my knitwear has been hand knitted by me on either circular or dpn needles. I believe in making my knitwear the old fashioned way.

All beaded items have been designed by me and are all hand beaded.

To learn a little bit more about the person behind Brawlbin Crafts have a look at this blog I was featured in for my new venture
