Sometimes I want to knit or crochet something, but I don’t have any idea what I want to make. In times like those, I look to my knitting gurus on instagram. I thought it would be fun to share the ones that I keep going back to (in no particular order) in case anyone needs more knitting accounts to follow on instagram. Also don’t forget to check out my own instagram, @hannahsloop.
- Two of Wands – I have only knit one sweater in my life (well one and a half) because it is such a scary sounding task. But, this page reminds me that it is possible. Alexandra also offers the patterns for free up on her blog. She uses very muted colors, but puts them together in a magical way. I have also been wanting a mustard or rust colored cardigan and I think it would be so fun and rewarding to make one.
2. Wild Flower Knitts – I love the color combinations that Kayla uses. My favorite colors to knit with are browns, oranges, yellows and reds. Her page gives me so many ideas on what ways I can use these colors. I also just love looking at the yarn she hand dyes, which is available up on her etsy shop. Her cat is also super cute!
3. Purl soho – This page is a bit different than the others because their knits are so neat looking and they create much thinner knits. I typically love the look of chunkier yarn and it is so much faster, but this page inspires me to mix it up to create some really dainty pieces.
4. Hello Lavender Design – This is another page that just gives me overall inspiration with what to knit and colors I love to use. I also would love to start taking such beautiful of pictures for my own instagram.
5. Knit collage – This brand is perfectly named. I am so inspired by the mixture of different yarn types and how there doesn’t need to be restriction by yarn weights or colors. This page is perfect to look to when you have a lot of leftover yarn that you don’t know what to do with. They also have the most beautiful shop.
6. Rosehip Lane – The last page is mainly inspiration for hats. I have been making so many hats and headbands lately for the holiday season. However, I have a basic hat pattern that I keep going back to (will post soon), but this account reminds me of the different ways you can be creative with hats and headbands.
I hope that this post gives you a little more knitting inspiration. I would love to see some of your favorite knitting/crafting inspiration pages below and don’t forget to subscribe (on the upper right). Thanks for reading!
