Winter is coming: Get yourself a K-nit

Today’s post serves as a proud announcement:

One of Click Surf’s favourite sons has ventured in to the world of woolen headwear with his new company K-nit (pronounced Kay Nit).

As a team of two, Mark and Carole Layfield have produced an introductory range of hand knitted headwear that’ll have your head spinning, and as they’ve publicly launched their brand new style guide we thought it might be the perfect opportunity to pass it on.

K-nit Hand Knitted Beanies

Firstly, about K-nit.

Let’s be honest. If you pictured a hand knitted beanie you’d probably be recalling Aunt Mable’s clumsy Christmas present that found it’s way to the darkest, most discreet compartment of the wardrobe, starved of life for all but a few festive moments of the year. Hey, nothing against Aunt Mable. She’s adorable. K-nit however, is something else entirely.

These beanies are bringing back the BOOM factor and are a hugely worthy competitor to anything else you’ll find from other commercial retailers. Sure, the artisan movement is on it’s way back in and we’re all familiar with Etsy (K-nit are on there too), but while searching for ‘hand knitted beanie’ might yield plenty of wholesome waffle knit melon tops, there’s just nothing quite at a comparable level of style, whilst still offering a beanies most essential function: keeping your head toasty warm.

Every beanie is made individually by hand between the K-nit crew of two and and as winter approaches they’re fully stocked and ready for a nation of shivering Brits.

For more information head over to the K-nit website or browse all of their beanies on their online shop.

Just to give you a taste of what’s in store, below are a few of their new range.
