sometime last year we took on a not so tiny home decor project for a friend. it started out being just one room and then it became the entire house! getting to the knitted object in the photo above, we wanted something that was neutral but with a lot of luxurious texture and heft. not being able to find such thing at the time, we commissioned ourselves to knit it!
knit collage’s sister yarn is a wonderful thick and thin yarn that comes in whopping 215g skeins. made up of 5 skeins, this throw knits up pretty fast on US19 needles. it took us just a few days — quite possibly faster than the time it takes to arrive from a store!
we wanted to emphasize its loopy doopy texture by knitting a wavy rib stitch. it’s got a modern organic sensibility.
goes great with traditional furnishings or juxtaposes nicely with something mid-century modern…like our white wired harry bertoia chairs. we were feeling really good about our throw. . . and then another friend of ours sent us this link for a similar throw. . .and suddenly we felt like $1,295 great!
