Swanning in front of the camera like he’s on his way to the chips ‘n’ dips bowl at a Christmas cocktail party, Nick is showing off a jazzy 80s jumper against a perfect egg white wall. Fancy taking a closer look at the knit? Let’s zoom in.
Our close-up analysis reveals a tight and thorough knit complete with squiggles, lines, arrows, crosses, colours, pinks, purples and even more squiggles. This is catalogue quality stuff that was probably wrestled off an older relative. We’re glad you won Nick, now go and enjoy those Doritos babe.
Look at little Bella, all rosy cheeked and terribly excited about Father Christmas being on his way! With a face like hers, there’s bound to be presents under the tree come Christmas Morning. Bella’s really getting into the festive swing of things with a knitted hat from Garson’s Farm Shop in a place called “Esher.” Where is this mythical land? We don’t know. But they knit one damn fine Christmas hat, we tell you.
Young Jake is modeling a kid’s Christmas jumper from George in a variety of Vogue poses that really accentuate his angles. Smizing throughout, Jake’s dramatic camera presence helps bring out the vivaciousness of his festive knit, which will surely be top of many Christmas lists come December. Remember to eat your peas kids and maybe – just maybe – there will be a Scandi Knit under the tree this year.
How cute?! A chic grey knitted jumper!!! The baby’s alright too. ONLY JOKING. Mary is the sweetest thing… a kid in a knit? Two worlds of cuteness colliding. The only thing that could make this photo cuter was if there were some otters holdings hands in the background. Maybe next time.
Our Rosie has married our Jim. As a wedding present, she used her many creative talents to knit him this stunning glove. We presume he’ll get one one for his left hand soon, but maybe Rosie is holding off for their Diamond Anniversary. Knitted carrot and stick, eh? Clever girl.
Our little Cece is wearing a Peruvian Knit while looking distressed about the state of her dinner. This South American woolen wonder comes complete with little llamas (or are they alpacas?) and fancy cuffs. Is Peru the new Scando? We hope not. Reindeers dog on llamas any day.
Shetland?! More like Knitland. These two sassy mares are showing off their fine sweaters on the edge of a windswept lake. Ain’t neigh-body gonna say these girls aren’t too hot to trot! Hats off to Ingrid for this one.
Sometimes knitted wear isn’t just about putting on an amazing jumper and walking into a room like a bull on caffeine. Sometimes it’s about other things, like socks. Because knitted socks are AMAZING. In the photo above, Tine from Tromsø is showing off her selbusokker (translation: self-knitted socks). Tine – your feet look beyond cosy.
Our correspondent for Russian jumpers spotted this contemporary knit in the Tsvetnoy shopping centre in Moscow. See? Russians don’t just beat up gays. They also look great while doing it! And in case you were wondering, Scandi Knits in Russian is скандинавские свитеры. You weren’t? OK neither were we.
This, our festive friends, is a celebration of life and knit. Everything in this photo is wonderful, especially our heroine Emma, who is very awkwardly kneeling on the floor while everyone else stands. Reasons? We can’t be sure. It’s tough to pick a favourite among these knits (even the rug is kind of Christmassy) but if we had to… we’d say Mr Penguin gets 1st Prize. We feel sorry for the lady at the back in green antlers. Talk about getting the cold shoulder.
