Stools Upholstered with Large-Scale Knits

Craft & Design Yarncraft

UK-based textile designer Claire-Anne O’Brien loves playing with the textural elements of knitting stitches. Here, she’s used a combination of hand and machine knitting to create dramatically oversized patterns as upholstery.
On her website, you can also see interesting examples of her Modular Stitch concept, which plays on the most basic element of knitting – the loop.
