Home is where the heart is
Through browsing interiors magazines and home furnishing stores, you’ll find knitted objects jumping off pages and leaping off shelves. During the past couple of years we’ve seen those chunky knitted poufs take over the world! Cable knit accessories followed on from their friends in the fashion world too. But instead of buying “The Look”, us nifty knitters are talented enough to recreate the hottest home accessories without spending a penny – forget the cash, use your stash! And the best thing about knitting any of these items yourself is that you can select the perfect yarn colour to coordinate with your room scheme!
We’ve picked a few of our favourites to share with you. Just click on the photo, and it’ll take you straight to the free pattern. You will need to sign up to the KnitRowan website (for free) to download two of these patterns, but it only takes 30 seconds.
This lovely Flower Hot Water Bottle Cover is an essential bedroom accessory. We’d suggest using any yarn from the Rowan British Sheep Breeds DK range. The Brown Bluefaced Leicester 781, has been used for the flower in the pattern and photo.
This super chunky knitted Nordic Wool Rug would be a prominent addition to any room. It shouldn’t take too long to knit either if you use a super chunky yarn!
It’s always good to have a mixture of textures and colours in a room, so this Textured Pillow Trio Crochet Pattern, is ideal! We’d recommend using Red Heart Soft. From left to right, the cushions in the photo are made from “Toast”, “Wine” and “Leaf”.
Have you ever knitted something for your home? We’d love to see it!
