Fashion is constantly re-writing and breaking the rules. Wearing white after Labor Day is no longer a fashion no-no, mixing plaids with stripes is perfectly acceptable (and encouraged!) and now wearing navy with black is on trend. And it’s a trend we are loving! Especially with the pops gold and cream. It’s sophisticated yet approachable and a trend I know I’ll be trying out on my next project.

We are inspired to create wearable goodies for ourselves all the time, but how often do we knit (or crochet) goodies for our surroundings? For most of us it is not until the fall / winter months that we start to want to surround ourselves in these delux textures. Well… it’s that time of the year and here’s my list of knit decor must haves for the season. These are so fashionable that they can be used / on display around all year long.
Casamania Granny Knitted Lamp Shades recently featured on one of our favorite haunts, Daily Candy.
cb2 knitted pouf, simple yet stylish and super useful. Comes in the season’s color must haves. Personally I’m getting a bit tired of orange so the grey really appeals to me, a neutral good for year around.
Biscuit Scout’s hand knitted cream aran armchair slip cover is quite possibly the coolest twist on utilitarian object EVER! This beautifully crafted “chair sweater” is perfect for those chilly winter nights. This would be perfect in front of a fire place, with a book and draped in… you guessed it… a matching aran blanket! I have about 3 chairs I can think of that I’d love to cover but I’m not sure if I’d have the heart to sit on them.
The last but not least is this beautiful porcelian knit texture bowl from Annette Bugansky Design. We saw this trend blow up last season but it’s one that I personally hope never goes away. Check out the links for awesome options of these faux knit beauties.
What are your favorite knit decor items this season?
