As we move closer and closer to those chilly Winter months (sorry to have the be the one to break it to you but yes, they are coming) we need to find the things that are going to keep us warm on the Winter nights. Luckily one of the biggest Autumn / Winter trends this month is also one of the warmest, coziest and most calming style of fabrics going; chunky textiles. Not just restricted to chunky knits, chunky textiles are bringing a cozy feel to an otherwise relatively minimalist group of Autumn / Winter trends.
Here are our favourite ways to incorporate this crafty trend into your everyday life as well as a few inspiration shots for you at the bottom of this article. Hope you stay snuggled up this winter!
Bring it home: This is probably the most obvious use for chunky knits; you can buy or make blankets and cushions to cover your home and give it that extra snuggly feeling. The best thing about chunky knit is how incredibly fast it comes together, so don’t worry about getting your projects finished in time for Winter!
Wear it: Snuggling up under it not quite doing it for you? Why not try getting in it as well? Chunky knit jumpers never go out of fashion but this winter they are going to be a definite staple item! Make one in every colour with contrasting scarves and stay snuggled up.
Mix it up: Try mixing your chunky knits up a little and rather than limiting yourself to just blankets and jumpers why not try a pair of chunky knit gloves or a chunky knit lampshade for your home? You can be really creative with this trend so make sure you experiment lots.
And don’t forget, we want to see your creations. Our readers give us so much inspiration so please keep sending your photos into us on Facebook and Instagram!
