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. 

Blankets & Throws

Where do you buy your chunky wool from? I love chunky knits and really want to try it; however, cannot find any wool under £100 anywhere and that is too expensive for a hobby :(

    Hi Libby, first thanks for visiting my little corner of the web. I get mine at the craft store. If you can't find an affordable option at your craft store, Etsy and some of the shops mentioned in this article offers wool for way less than 100 pounds.
