The other day I shared my impromptu Poang Mini Chair Cover knitting project. Once I'm finished with it, I'll try to write it up as a pattern for fun, but in the meantime if you have a chair that needs to be covered with knitted yarn you can glean some inspiration from some of these widely available chair cover knitting patterns. One of my favorite knitting designers Erika Knight has produced not one, but two knitted chair cover patterns and Nicky Epstein has taken knitting roses to a whole new level. Before you get rid of that old ikea chair, check out these knitting chair cover patterns and decide whether your old ikea chair just needs a little airing out and a chair cover knitted with love.
The knitted cushions above come from Ruth Cross's book the Knitted Home.
Check out these cool knitted chair cover patterns:
- The Aran Armchair Cover by Erika Knight is meant for that famous Ikea Chair. It's from her Simple Knits with a Twist book, which I consider a classic.
- The Chair Cover, another pattern by Erika Knight would do very well to cover traditional dining chairs.
- The Bum Chair Cushion, you know in case your friends and family need instructions on how to use a chair.
- Haleakala chair by Heather Broadhurst can add some knitted style into your favorite lawn chai
- The Monster Chair by Rebecca Danger is the chair made of awesome for your son or daughter's room. You can find the pattern in the Knit a Monster Nursery Book.
- Nicky Epstein's felted roses chair does the impossible and turns a simple chair into a possible mother's day gift.
- Cushions for Chairs by Ruth Cross in the book The Knitted Home adds a rustic feel to any mid-century modern chair.
- The Traveling Cable Chair by Lorrain Hern
- The Sweet and Lowdown Chair by Veronik Avery uses fisherman's wool to create a veritable aran sweater for a chair.
I'm still working away on the mini poang chair cover. I've got three more skeins of chunky weight yarn. I hope that will be enough!
