We live in a rapidly changing, globally connected world. Technology is more integrated into our lives now than ever before, be it checking what's trending on Twitter or Instagram, or going online for swimsuit shopping.
The mini computers in our pockets, that we now carry everywhere we go, provide instant gratification, hours of entertainment and an abundance of inspiration. After all, who doesn't go to Pinterest to get ideas for a new creative project these days?
Be it on Pinterest or Instagram, you have seen how certain things tend to 'trend', or be more popular than others.
Knitting is no different. There are a number of trends in 2019 that we love and wanted to share with you, so you too can get inspired for your own knitting projects.
1. Mixing Textures
While a few years ago, simple and minimalist chunky blankets were making the rounds on Instagram, these days mixing textures is key.
Whether it is adding pom poms, which has been extremely popular lately as we're making more pom pom blankets than ever, or adding fringe like in the image above - combining two different textures together adds a level of sophistication to your finished product.
2. Color Blocking
Color blocking is the thing to do in 2019. Gone are the single toned blankets of the past.
This year folks are going for colors, the more the better. Dual- and tri- toned throws look fantastic in every room as you can coordinate the different colors to your home decor.
3. Bold Colors
Whether it's getting this gorgeous blue raspberry variegated chenille as pictured above, or selecting from a vast array of bright colors we have in stock, bold colors are 'in' for 2019.
Love bright pink? Green? Yellow? We've got you covered.
4. Dreamy Patterns
Whether it is double ribbing, cable or basket weave, patterns are all the rage! Forget the simple braid pattern and challenge yourself to something a bit more exciting.
