I found this about a week ago in Craftster,
It’s knitted by Jen Hunt from Washington DC, inspired by her favorite sports team colours, Redskins.
She used only 5 skeins of Lion Brand Jiffy Thick and Quick!
Here’s what she has to say about it…
“When I saw your knitted chair I thought it was the coolest thing ever! I wanted to make one myself. Being it my first chair cover, and not even sure if I could make it look some-what like a chair cover, I decided to start the pattern half way. which only took 5 skeins. I picked the colors for my favorite sports team, and went for it! Despite some mistakes, too many stitches in the front section, I think it looks ok for my first attempt!! It was easy and fast. When I attempt another one, I think I’ll play around more with different types of stitches.”
I was really excited when I found it, but please do let me know if you decided to knit a chair for yourself one day, I need to know!
Join me in a fun outdoor knitting event! Collaborate with other knitters to create one-of-a-kind knitted chairs! Bring your unloved yarns and some needles, come and knit some panels and patches and be part of this project.
Help me to realise my vision of creating a totally unique chair cover that involves the creativity and effort of many. Non-knitters are also welcomed, some supplies will be provided and I’ll personally get you knitting!
Here’s another one knitted by the wonderful Talitha.
Here’s what she says about it:
“a papasan chair. yup, something about the cushiness of all the ribbing in this seat invites me, calls me to come & to sit (i’ve always felt the same way about the infamous papasan chairs).
it’s so great to take a formerly cold, almost sterile looking, plastic chair and trasform it so easily into something so cozy. ah…”
I personally agree, don’t you?
Here’s the latest addition to our Not-so-ubiquitous Knitted Chairs collection!
Many people seems to be discouraged by the amount of yarn the chair took to make, so I came up with this solution! It only took 10 skeins of Sirdar Bigga (that’s a mere 440 yards/400 metres!) and a bit of novelty yarn. Ok, so I ran out of yarn for the top bit, but the snowflake yarn I used pull it all together nicely.
Pattern will be available here soon!
