Home accessories are really fun to knit for people of all skill levels. For beginners, it’s nice that things for your house don’t have to come out an exact size as a garment for a person does. More advanced knitters can use fancy stitches and skillful swatching to make a cover that perfectly fits a chair or another accessory that’s completely unique and a great conversation piece.
Ruth Cross takes knitters on a journey from basic stitches on knit throws to more complex designs and shaped patterns in her book The Knitted Home. It offers lots of suggestions and advice for combining stitch patterns and different kinds of yarn to create home accessories that look great whether you home is modern or more traditional.
The giveaway this week is a hardcover edition of this book. To enter for a chance to win, leave a comment on this post before the end of the day Sunday, May 26.
I’d love to know what you knit for your home. I mostly knit washcloths, but I have a few knit pillows, and after reading this book I’m thinking hard about knitting a curtain for my office.
Thanks for visiting and good luck!
