Lauren's Top Valentine's Picks

OK so I’m going to be honest and admit that I am NOT a huge fan of Valentines Day… in fact, I think it’s a bullshit day that for years has been about making single people feel inferior and as we all know it’s based entirely on consumerism. HOWEVER I am a sucker for a red and pink colour combination and I’ll never turn down an opportunity to celebrate the people I love…albeit, I don’t think this should be reserved for one single day of the year and a helium balloon. I think it should be every damn day.

So here’s my proposal… let’s love the love, let’s dress head to toe in pink, red and hearts (if that’s your vibe)… and let’s not reserve it for February 14th. I’m now going to shamelessly use Valentines Day as an excuse to share my favourite and most ‘Valentines appropriate’ knits here and I hope we can enjoy them year round.

…And for those of you who LOVE Valentines Day (absolutely no shade to you my darlings, I fully support anything that brings you joy!) Here are some very on theme knits for your special day in Feb…

Je T'aime Jumper

You can't NOT feel the love in this one. It's totally over the top and that's why I LOVE it. Frilly cuffs, hearts and love are what this knitted jumper are all about!

The Weekend Sweater

Designed for days in and snuggling up, this collared jumper looks it's best made in pink stripes if you ask me! Knitted in the round with no sewing up it's a fast knit that makes an impact!

Limited Edition Valentines Fika

I cannot get enough of this one. Here for a limited time only then once it's gone... it's gone (nooo!) This dreamy pink version of our best selling colourwork sweater need to get in my wardrobe ASAP.

Worked in the round so no sewing up, you can whip it up super quickly and even better than that... the colourwork is WAY easier that it looks!! You don't need to have any experience with colourwork to be able to nail this one, I promise!

Colour pop hat

If your date night involves any time out the house then you'll be in dire need of a good hat. We have a number of hat designs that would all suit but I'm sticking with the colour pop hat for now as I can't get over the colour combo of Candyfloss and Scarlet.

Shake Ya Pompoms Jumper

Should you be looking for a *statement knit* (and why wouldn't you?!) then look no further than the Shake Ya Pompoms chunky knit jumper! A really quick and easy knit that is totally made by the addition of pompoms to either the whole body or just the sleeves.

Cinema date, dinner, night in - the pompom jumper has you covered lover!

Feel the Love garland

I'm just going to sneak in a few little gifty/decor ideas because while it's important that we always wear the most fabulous knits, we sometimes need to knock up a few simple knitted hearts to share the love.

Clean as a Whistle Bath Mat

This one might take you a bit longer but it'll be worth it... Not all our knitted cotton bathmats say 'naked' but our favourite ones do! If you're looking for a gift this February then I'd say look no further friend! ;)
