These days it has become way too normal to be in a tube carriage full of people staring at their phones. Only recently I have started to see an increasing number of knitters in my commute.
The idea of getting my attention away from the noise and packed carriages sounded appealing so I decided to do a little research on this. We all wear clothes so why not make them myself?
Tip: Read until the end for some discount codes for you all ;)
How to make your own clothes
There are a few companies offering starter kits and patterns on the internet, but my favorite is We Are Knitters, a small Spain-based maison whose motto is “Trends and Friends” – how cool is that?
We Are Knitters
When you sign up, you get to choose colours and patterns for your first work, and they will take care of the rest. With this package, you can knit, crochet and do petit point too.
No knitting experience? There are tons of video tutorials like this one:
I find We are Knitters so cool because it is about collectively creating and sharing garments. Its small community posts its works so you can get inspired – I look forward to sharing mine too!
They use sustainable materials and Beechwood instead of plastic which is something all companies should really commit to. Some of the qualities are soft cotton, wools and alpacas so you can choose what to use for any particular look or weather conditions.
What’s included in the starter kit?
There are many kits depending on your level, from beginner to advanced, but they all include this:
- Tapestry needle
We are Knitters in on sale so don’t miss your chance to get your kit at a nice price! My kit is on its way but please do let me know when you get yours and what’s your review 🙂
May the knitting begin!
