Urban Knit features a Scandinavian knitwear design: sweaters, socks and accessories that are timelessly stylish in design. Modern knitwear made with modern techniques is easy to combine with your own casual wear: even a small accessory, such as a beanie or socks, elevates style to a different level. Urban Knit shows how simple becomes interesting with a couple of braid turns. Shirts and cardigans are knitted from top to bottom, socks from toe to toe - the details are carefully thought out. Self-making is slow fashion, responsible and wonderful!
Leeni Hoimela, who works as a lifestyle journalist and photographer, has published instructions in the international Laine knitting magazine, on the covers of the German Making Stories, the largest handicraft magazine in Finland, Suuren Käsityön, and Taito magazines. The knit book Urban Knit is also a beautiful and soft description of Helsinki. The picturesque shots feature the aesthetics of classical fine art brought into today’s knitwear.
