Sincerely Louise

Sincerely Louise is an independent, award winning knitting brand that specialises in faux taxidermy inspired designs. We believe that knitting should be fun and that with a few simple stitches you can make something extraordinary. We think that creating something with your hands should be championed and we're so proud to be makers with a quirky sense of humour. Launched in 2014 Sincerely Louise has grown from a one girl band working in a bedroom to a small team based in our Sheffield studio. Our aim is to encourage and inspire as many people as possible to learn to knit and to create something fun with a big personality.

My item hasn't arrive, what should I do?

If your item hasn't arrived that makes us as upset as you and will do everything we can to get you knitting ASAP!

Firstly we'll ask for you to check your local delivery office to see if it has arrived and is being held. In most cases of undelivered items the orders are returned back to SL HQ marked 'not called for'.

If you item has been lost in the post then we'll send another one out to you. In accordance with Royal Mail's lost item policy Sincerely Louise can only send the replacement order 10 days after it's due delivery date for UK orders, 20 days after it's due delivery date for European orders and 25 days after it's due delivery date for Worldwide orders. We recommend choosing a signed for service so we can track your item.

Can I order your items as gifts and send them straight to the recipient?

Yes you can. You can add in the note section if your order is a gift and include a special message too. We'll include the order receipt but not any of the prices. We currently wrap each kit in tissue paper. We do not offer a gift wrap service.

Which kits would you recommend for beginners? Will your kits teach me how to knit?

We'd recommend one of our easy knit scarf knits, like the fox, panda or bear. These kits include tips for beginners throughout the pattern and only use the 'knit' stitch. Our unicorn scarf is also very easy, but does not include the beginner tips. If you can knit, purl and decrease we'd recommend one of our hat kits.

Our kits won't teach you how to knit but are designed to be fun and simple knits. We're currently working on our first set of Youtube videos so watch this space. We're always happy to point you in the right direction of our favourite learn to knit videos in the mean time.

Can I buy your kits as finished pieces?

We can offer our knitting kits as finished pieces, just drop us a message with what you're interested in and we'll see what we can do.

Please note that we do charge accordingly per piece and that they are not 'cheap' to buy. We'd always recommend buying a kit and seeing if you have any friends or relatives who can make it up for you.

Can I sell the finished pieces I make from your kits and patterns?

Sincerely Louise does not allow for customers to sell finished pieces from any of our kits, digital patterns or book patterns. All our patterns are for personal use only and feature a copyright notice which states they cannot be used for any commercial purpose without permission from the copyright holder.

This is our policy because we've spent a long time establishing ourself as an independent brand. We feel when people sell our finished knits it undervalues the business and the hard work spent designing the patterns. We love it when our kits being gifted, be it to a crafter to make, or a finished piece to friends or family, but it breaks our heart seeing a finished piece being sold and our copyright ignored. We hope you understand.
