If you’re a fan of the “box” trend, check out European-based DIY knitting kit company We Are Knitters.
They recently expanded into the Canadian marketplace including country-wide shipping and a steadfast commitment to nurturing and fostering collaborations with local retailers. The expansion enables Canadians to purchase kits online and have everything shipped right to the door. You’ll also find perfectly curated collections through co-branded collaborations available at retailers across the country including Urban Outfitters, Merci, Galeries Lafayette and Anthropologie.
Internationally-recognized as the global leaders in the knitting world, We Are Knitters encourages creativity and self-wellness through the art of knitting. Often described as “the new yoga,” knitting celebs including Demi Lovato, Amanda Seyfried, Sarah Jessica Parker, Julia Roberts and Krysten Ritter (with whom We Are Knitters has a collaboration), have all publicly expressed their love of knitting.
The kits, ranging in all levels of difficulty, come in a variety of options from classic wool scarves and blankets (perfect for the hot hygge trend), to bags and apparel. You only need to choose the colours and pattern and the rest is covered, including: The perfect amount of 100 per cent Peruvian wool skeins in the colour of your choice; sustainably sourced 100 per cent beechwood needles (no plastics); step-by-step pattern on how to complete the piece; tapestry needle for final touches.
