Home Decor Trend: Chunky Knits
Chunky knits are a favorite when it comes to winter fashion. Who doesn’t love cozy and warm, right? Now designers are bringing that same comfort and warmth to the home. Chunky knits and crochets are the new hot trend in home decorating.
It’s been really cold out so I’m all about chunky knits right now. Today I’m sharing a few ways to use chunky knits at home. If you’re a crafty diva, you can make these items yourself. But if you’re like me, you could just buy them.

To knit your own, you’ll need some really large knitting needles. Don’t have knitting needles? No problem! You can also use your arms to do the knitting. There are lots of great tutorials available online.
