Knitting accounts we love to follow on the ‘gram

Hello loves!

How ARE you?! Things are all good here at LAD HQ – we may not be too busy with orders (now the sun’s out the knitting seems to have slowed down) but there’s loads going on behind the scenes.

Last week we had a Christmas photoshoot for a well known lifestyle mag 🙊🙊 so we had to decorate the studio as if it was December, and we loved it! It’s probably illegal to say the C word here in June, but as it’s our most favourite time of the year, it was so lovely to have a little taste of it, just for a day!

As well as that we’ve been test knitting lots of new patterns and making plans for launches over the next few months – this is usually our most quiet time for orders so it gives us chance to prep loads for later on in the year. And we’re bursting to share more, but until it’s all finalised we’re keeping schtum!

Anyway, on to the blog – this week I wanted to share some of our favourite knitting accounts we love to follow on Instagram. You probably know of lots of these, but if you’re anything like me, your search page is full of new suggestions of accounts to follow, so here are some of our suggestions! Please do share your favourites in the comments, I am ALWAYS looking for new yarn inspo!

Some of our favourite knitting accounts we love to follow on the 'gram...

Chunky knits…

This is where our heart lies, and there are so many beautiful accounts that are knitting gorgeous chunky loveliness all over Instagram – here are just a few highlights from our feed; (from top left, clockwise) @vicky.knits,, @hope.macaulay, @karas.knit.eng@abbieknits, @lucyknitsshop

Fine knits…

And fine in more ways than one! There are some truly stunning accounts out there, our ‘to knit’ list is getting longer by the day! Some of our favourites include; @rachelknitsthings, @knittingforolive, @annesofiesrensen, @petiteknit, @myfavouritethings.knitwear, @laurensluxuryhandknits

Knits for children…

With a baby in the LAD house, our feeds are being filled more and more with knits for kids – and there are some gorgeous accounts that we’re swooning over! Let us know your favourites too… Who can resist; @knittingforolive, @mabliknits (x2), @petiteknit, @along.avec.anna, @misha_and_puff

And just because…

She may be more about crochet but we adore @katiejonesknit

It may not be knitting but the yarn work of @oandystudio is gorgeous

@maisieknitsx is a real advocate of LAD and we love her energy!


Two more knitting accounts we love to follow purely because they share the BEST knits of the gram are: @k.n.i.t.inspiration and @knits_and_dreams

Phew! That’s enough to keep us going for a bit I reckon. Please do let me know your favourites and I’ll add them to the list – because we always need more, right?!

Bye for now,

Helen xx
