Knit one slip one

As I’m writing this post I am layered with three sets of clothes and two pairs of socks – it’s freezing cold and I’m loving it. Just because it’s the best excuse to drink way too much hot chocolate!

Chunky knits are such a lovely way of celebrating winter. It’s an ode to texture and I have found the most creative people that have designed decor items with an ‘out of the box’ approach. View the shopping page at the end of the post.

Have a look at how chunky knits are introduced in furniture, lighting and even as wallpaper. We have dedicated the month of July to all things winter and will show you how to knit your own carpet with the least amount of effort to introduce a bit of chunky into your home.

  1. If you’re looking for someone who can knit these, you can have a look at Handmade by Maggie Jo. Find her on Facebook or email her maggiejordaan at live dot com.

  2. Baie mooi! Ek het die wol en penne op Calvinia by Sonetties (materiaal en wol winkel) gekoop. Nou moet ek net begin brei.

  3. Margaux, jy sal maak dat ek glad nie my werk kan doen nie en net brei. Ek soek ook daai dik naalde – waar, meisie?

    1. Daar is ‘n wol winkel in die De Bron winkelsentrum (waar Smugglers is) en die naam is Knitter Knatter. Hulle het die dik naalde @ R140.00 per paar. Dik hekelpen R80.00. Die wol daar is fantasties!
