Giant threads for knitting furniture


Bauke Knottnerus came up with these colorful, arm-thick threads for creating “interior products,” “knitted or not,” and calls ’em Phat Knits. Cory Doctorow loves this stuff and says it’s “like being miniaturized and set loose on a chunky sweater.”

Knottnerus is one of the 2008 graduates of the Design Academy Eindhoven, a prolific bunch (see here and here and here for instance).
