6 Knitting Artists You Need to Know NOW!

Here's a list of knitting artists that any self respecting knitting fan NEED to know:

(In order of my favourite)

#6 Ivano Vitali

Creates Zero-Waste Garments From Recycled Newspaper Yarn


#5 Dave Cole

Known for knitting in strange materials (recycled fibreglass) and large scale knitting.


#4 Magda Sayeg

A very famous yarn bomber and knit artist, Magda has worked with clients such as 7up and Absolut. 
There were way too any photos to chose from as to my favourite examples to show off.


#3 Kaffe Fassett

Okay, so no hating. Kaffe Fassett is a knitting and needlepoint legend but sadly hasn't made it to my own personal #1. 
Definitely a must for any uni student into knitting. Just amazing.


#2 Kate Jenkins

A girl after my own heart and so close to being my number one (I took it pretty seriously). 
I am in love with the mixture of knit and crochet skill by Kate.


#1 Agata Oleksiak 

I'm sorry but holy shit. Not only does Olek make me want to like in a crochet cave but I find her so inspiring.
Her use of colour and quirk is simply unreal.
Yarn porn.
