Knit 1 - Very Big 1

I always enjoy seeing knitting and crochet work in a decor context - so I just love this giant cabled knitted rug. It is made by Christien Meindertsma who has a knitwear brand with a difference called Flocks!
Have a look here or here to see the huge needles she used to knit the rug.

Wow! I wonder how they knit that? Very innovative!

What a great post - and I love the way the addition of the feet and hands in the first two images put the size of the piece into context!

You're not going to believe this, but I just ran across this same set of pictures about an hour ago! They are so wonderful. I don't know the first thing about knitting, but I find it fascinating.

That's so brilliant! However did she come up with the idea? I wonder how it feels to walk on it.

It's beautiful. I can almost feel it under my feet....
