Knitwear gets pretty popular during the colder fall and winter days and while the selection of cute knitwear can be pretty extensive from shop to shop, not everyone has the money to splurge on them all the time. If you’re on a budget and are looking for ways to keep yourself warm and stylish this winter, why not make your own knitted pieces? Of course, you’ll need to learn how to knit first but if you don’t have the time for that, we have a few alternatives too. Check out these cute knits you should be making right now.
- BOOT CUFFS – knitted boot cuffs not only look pretty, they add warmth and keep your boots snug and prevents them from slouching down, too. These are small in size so knitting them is quite easy. If you know how to knit or crochet, you can go ahead and start making your own personalized one but if not, you can always use a loom as it is a bit easier.
- REGULAR SCARF – speaking of using a loom, another knitted item you can make yourself with a loom is a scarf. It’s a really great activity that you can do while passing time watching your favorite TV series or just lounging around at home. It’s also perfect for when you just can’t find a scarf with the perfect color combo to match your outfit.
- ARM / FINGER KNITTED COWL – arm and finger knitting is a great alternative to traditional knitting. It requires nothing but the yarn(s) of your choice and a lot of patience. You can do lots of things with arm / finger knitting but a cowl is going to be the easiest one.
- CLUTCH – a knitted clutch is something you don’t see every day so if you’re looking for something unique to sport with your everyday looks, why not knit one? Chunkier stitches make for a better clutch but it’s totally up to you to choose what knitting stitch pattern to use. You can also add a few embellishments to chic-ify your clutch and give it some personality. Don’t forget to line the inside of your knitted clutch so you’re sure nothing falls through.
- PONCHO / CAPE – these are all the rage these days so why not make yourself your very own knitted version? I gotta say, this one is for the advanced knitters and it takes a lot of patience. This one’s not a 30-minute project as it may take you days to complete one cape / poncho, even if it’s a very simple one, but it’s going to be well-worth it.
