Artistic Knits for the Home

When I worked as the editor of a knitting magazine, I would commission projects by knitwear designers across the country. These women and men were passionate about their craft and would produce gorgeous, handmade pieces with a surprisingly short deadline. I was always especially drawn to the cabled and chunky knits for the home - there is a beautiful artistry in the craft of knitting.

Here is a display of knitted artworks I found lovely, as well as practical (and if you are a knitter instead of a shopper, hopefully these will hold some inspiration, too).

Clockwise from top left:

  1. House Cushion, Aldea Home ($110)
  2. Slumber Pouf designed by Aleksandra Gaca, Northern Icon (Large: $1060)
  3. Alpaca Chunky Knit Pillow, Wildflower Organics ($429)
