Knitting Patterns for the Home
We knit year round for everyone. However, I think it would be wonderful if we had more knitting patterns for the home in our knitting arsenal. We knit for babies, we knit for our husbands, our kids, our parents, we even knit for our pets. But, a lot of times as much as we think we knit for our homes beyond the occasional throw or afghan what else do we knit for our homes?
I thought it was time to really see what I could find in the way of knitting patterns for the home that would be great to knit and really spruce up the house with. How about some curtains, of course, we know we can do a table cloth or a table runner. But some beautiful placemat settings with matching coasters? What if we were to add some knitting patterns for the home that not only had those chunky cable throws but matching pillows.
Ok, so I always need a coaster when I’m at the computer I use a knit washcloth I made instead 100% cotton soaks up everything. So here’s a couple of cute patterns I think would be better than my sample cloth in Halloween orange (LOL). I love these Cozy Linen Coasters by flax & twine | anne b. weil especially since we just covered the linen stitch they are so perfect for these hazy daze of summer.
I saw this pattern Sneid by Vedis Jonsdottir for Istexand thought it’s perfect for a chair or a stool making a must have. Keep it neutral or go crazy with color and the possibilities are endless. I would say if you are going to add it to a stool add some foam or padding under it to give it some grip and it will last forever.
So, We have some tea our pot holders for the tea kettle a chair to sit in and now some curtains to look out the window while we drink the tea would be nice. So after looking around Ravelry for a minute or maybe days I decided I liked these Dappled Lace Cafe Curtains from Knit Picks.
Now Ladies and Gentlemen, a place to kick off your shoes a One Skein Shoe Rug by Art Fiend for your shoes and we will have finished our five fabulous knitting patterns for the home you can get started on right away.
Well, I hope you found something you might want to try with these patterns to get you started. Please put on the tea kettle or the coffee pot and get comfy and start knitting. Darn, I should have found us a tea cozy also for this collection:(
