23 Weird But Awesome Knitted Things

Everything can be knitted. A leotard, that deer head on your wall — it’s all fair game (pun most definitely intended) this fall.

1. Knitted leotard:

3. And your bike:

By a group of yarn-bombers (it’s like graffiti, only harmless and heartwarming) called Bombing Yarn Over Bend from Bend, Oregon. They named the bike “Lantern Rouge.” No word on how it rides.


This one’s crochet, but it still counts. By user Vilma on Ravelry, an incredible social network for knitters and crocheters.

7. Overalls:

Buy it from FreePeople for $88.

8. Hot air balloons:

From Kid’s Room Inspiration Ideas. I don’t have any kids, but I do want these.

9. Armchairs:

From BiscuitScout on Etsy.


By LKBknits. These chairs look like they’d either be incredibly cozy or annoyingly knobbly on bare skin.

12. Full-length gowns:

13. Nikes (yes, these are actually knitted, although not by hand):

They’re the 2012 Nike HTM FlyKnits; the upper part of the sneaker is knitted and woven out of supportive cables in order to increase breathability.


16. This felted elephant tea cozy and egg-warmer:

By Holofernes

17. Books:

From Craftivore. You could easily make this into a Kindle cover too (although that might be missing the point).

18. Curtains:

19. Knitted stools:

Again with the cozy vs. knobbly. By Claire-Anne O’Brien.

20. Ottoman Pouf:

Perfectly sized for babies. By Tricomondesophie.

Or… flask coozies. By Eskimami

22. Rock cozies:

Because even rocks need sweaters.

23. Apple cozies:

Apples too! Perfect for a nippy fall day.
