The arm-knitted craze is sweeping the nation, but you’ve probably never seen this type of knitted creation before. Anne Weil of Flax & Twine made a cozy planter for her house plants using chunky yarn, and the results are amazing!
The arm-knitted baskets are the perfect combination of cozy and chic — just the thing to spruce up your decor this winter. Weil uses super thick yarn to create the baskets, which can be used as a planter or really anything else.
“The structure of the baskets come somewhat from the weight of the yarn and the basic stitch pattern, and also from the double thickness of the fabric,” Weil explains.
The best part? You can make them yourself. Weil offers patterns for the arm-knitted baskets, as well as kits that include the chunky yarn you’ll need. So what are you waiting for? Get to knitting!
