Over the last few years, textile craftsmanship has oh-so-quietly been re-climbing the ladder of hipness. Blame actual hipsters if you want, but it thrills us. Young weavers like Maryanne Moodie
are creating intricate, modern decorations and teaching (sold out) classes to a new generation of eager makers. Companies like We Are Knitters
and Wool And The Gang
are churning out luxe yarns and materials, and a new Kickstarter-funded print magazine about fiber art, Knit Wit
, just launched — proving the young textile community is as thick as ever.
So, in honor of fall sweater weather, we rounded up our favorite Instagram accounts that inspire us to lock our doors and pick up a pair of needles ourselves. From bubble gum pink sweaters to fox mittens, they're the projects we're pinning. Trust, it's easier than it looks. Especially when you have a furry pal to unravel the spool for you.
