Chunky Knit Decor
I have a fondness for the hand made and a great appreciation for those that maintain time honored crafts as well as the warm, homey feeling they give me whenever I’m around them. They remind me of time spent with my Mom, when she patiently taught her daughters to sew, crochet and embroider. I’ve always loved knits too but she had less patience for that. She always said she couldn’t stand the needles clicking, (shrug) so suffice to say I still can’t knit.
We start switching out our wardrobes to our cooler weather clothes when Fall arrives, and it’s also a good time to freshen up our home decor for the winter seasons. There’s a renewed fondness for the hand made and if you’d like an instant face lift for any space, knitted home decor and hand made, chunky knits are a warm and personalized pick-me-up. Their sweater like textures convey a mood to cuddle up and snuggle. Chunky knits and knitted decorations pair well with other hand made textures too. When they’re combined with crocheted decor, fringe, shags and textural weaves, they create a lot of inviting visual interest. There is a huge selection available of chunky knit blankets and throws, decorative knit pillows, knitted and crocheted pouf ottomans, bean bags and so much more. If you have skills, you may want to try your hand at creating your own, or you can buy some pieces to help you settle in for the winter and still enjoy all of the home made feeling. I’ve put together a collection of chunky knits and knitted homeware for idea inspiration or to buy. The internet is just buzzing with talented knitters and home decorating style mavens and I’ve hunted for the most creative!
