About Me

Picture of Rachel GibbsI began knitting when I was a child but didn’t really get into it until I started university. My favourite thing to knit is probably cabled socks, but I like to try new things.

I started designing because I couldn’t find patterns that had the features I wanted. Then a new UK knitting magazine called for submissions on Ravelry and I thought, maybe I could do that, and had my first pattern published by Knit Now Magazine.

I’m just getting back into designing again after a break due to illness. Designing is something I can do at my own pace, that lets me stretch my brain and makes me happy. I hope to be able to continue publishing patterns and adding to my cabled sock collection.

You can find me on Twitter and Instagram as @RachelNGibbs, on Ravelry as EnzoTheRhino and my group Rachel Gibbs Designs, on Facebook as Rachel Gibbs Designs or email me. If you would like to keep up to date with my designs, sign up for my newsletter in the sidebar.
