Couture knitwear

I’m always amazed at what people can do with a bit of yarn and some imagination. I had a lazy Sunday this weekend and spent a good hour or so browsing endlessly from website to website gawping at beautiful couture knits.

Some of these are pre-2014, but worth a mention nonetheless. Just take a look at this knitting eye candy. Links to all of the designers shown are included below. I heartily recommend you check them all out – and let me know if you’ve got a favourite knitwear designer!

It’s been almost eight months since I knitted the beautiful Anais sweater by Brooklyn Tweed for myself and I enjoyed it so much, I resolved to keep one project of my own on the go all the time. It’s never that easy!
