Creative Knitting

How creative is your knitting? I love finding amazing things that knitters around the world have created, and here’s a small collection from my huge list of favourites:

Knitted/Felted Shark Attack Hat by 3RaysOfSunshine:


This quirky design originally started out from a dead fish knitting pattern! I think it’s brilliantly creative and a great way to get the kids wearing hats in this rotten weather, I wonder if it would go down well with my 6mth old wearing one… See the original post here.

Theresa Honeywell’s Motorcycle Cosy:


Theresa is well-known in the United States for her artistic knitting and feminine interpretation of every day masculine products, and this knitted pink motorcycle cosy is perhaps one of her most famous pieces.  Makes for a comfortable journey! Check out Theresa’s Official Website for more of her fun creations.

Sara Carr’s Lambswool Scarves:


All Sara’s pieces are handmade to order and these lambswool scarves are so tastefully creative. You’d think these scarves would be for children, but at 160cm long I was ecstatic to find they’re actually for us grown-ups 🙂 although children’s versions are available.

Keep going Sara, we love your stuff!

Knitted Icons Book

Last, but by no means least, is this knitting book by Carol Meldrum.  What better way to pass a sunny sunday afternoon than to immortalise your favourite legend as a knitted doll?  Patterns include Madonna, Bruce Lee, Elvis and Marilyn Monroe to name a few. The arrival of this book just goes to show that knitting is on the rise again, and dare I say it, cool?
