5 Favorite knits for a stylish home
We knitters love to surround ourselves with knitting – never more so than in our cozy homes! Merion has found five fabulous knits for your home that you’re going to love…
A super fast, cosy blanket is an essential home accessory! This beauty will knit up fast in Wool Ease Thick & Quick, and the pattern has six different sizes from baby to XXL blanket. You can use any super chunky yarn here, or chunky/aran weight double stranded, and the yardage needed can be found in the pattern details here.
MillaMia’s Swedish style is never out of place – the Rand cushion is one of a few different designs that included colour work that ranges from simple stripes to Fair Isle and intarsia. Knitted in the gorgeous MillaMia Naturally Soft Merino, these motifs have fantastic stitch definition too.
Working a patchwork sampler blanket is a fabulous way to learn and perfect new stitches, and this Lion Brand Sampler includes cables, lace and textured motifs that you can work on square by square and stitch together. The great benefit of this kind of project is that it is very portable – you can take these squares with you anywhere. Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice is an easycare yarn in an aran/worsted weight so it will knit up relatively quickly on 5mm needles – and there are 36 shades to choose from, so you can follow the pattern’s original colourway or choose your own.
This fabulous cushion comes from Jeanette Sloan – knitted in a DK weight yarn – and it’s the kind of cushion to make you swoon and want to knit it all over again! Choose a hardwearing DK yarn, this is bound to be a favourite that everybody picks up – so perhaps something with a good twist to show off those beautiful stitches. Patons Diploma Gold DK has some cool vintage shades, and some acrylic and nylon blended with 55% wool to keep those stitches defined.
This glorious cable throw is a satisfying knit that will be a favourite on the sofa on a chilly night. The Cos Cob Throw is a free download from Lion Brand, knitted in Vanna’s Choice, a very affordable, washable premium acrylic that comes in 36 shades. This is great cable practise!
