Best Farmhouse Crafts in Knit and Crochet

Spaces that are styled in Farmhouse often have contrasting materials like rod iron and cotton together in one piece to further add to elements of an unexpected balance. In previous years we saw dark greys and neutrals in this decor style, but more recently, we see colors in ranges of whites to create lighter and airier spaces while still maintaining balance in home decor. We hope to inspire you with these crafts that fit perfectly within the Farmhouse Aesthetic and may inspire you to play with your stitches’ contrasting textures in your garments and home decor.

Christmas Countdown Dec. 14 – Knit Ornaments

It’s funny the things that bring a (happy) tear to the eye. Searching through the archives from my store, I knew I’d kept the handmade cards my parents (who sadly, are no longer with us) made for the shop – Dad did the drawings, Mum made the knitted accessories. What I didn’t know I still had, was my mother’s handwritten instructions for little knitted stockings which were created for a different card design.

Named after my mother, I’ve called this pattern Beryl’s Little Christmas Stockings. As the original design was intended to be fixed flat against a card, I’ve written additional instructions so that a matching “back” can be made, so both sides can be sewn together to make a tiny stocking that opens at the top for a lovely knit ornament.
