Oh, my, I saw these on Christien Meindertsma’s website and my mouth just flew open and then I got a big grin on my face! I love these giant garter stitch cushions that are called urchin pouf’s. I so want to see these being made — wait, what am I saying?! I want to try making these!
As you can see, the needle size is definitely off the charts. Meindertsma is a young Dutch designer that has an innovative and humorous approach to knitting. She has a product line called FLOCKS, that as the website says is “a knitwearbrand in the broadest sense of the word.” She was also a part of an exhibit at the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum called “Design for a Living World” that highlighted items made from sustainable materials from around the globe. Go to YouTube and you can hear her thoughts on her work.
