For a few decades, hand-knitting was seen as an old-lady stuff only. While old ladies still create the occasional warm sweater or scarf using this technique, they are not alone anymore as it becomes trendy again.

Designers have taken an interest in knitting, and it doesn’t stop to fashion, interior designers also created some cool stuff inspired by the patterns of knitting.
