Brit Knits: All Sorts of Amazing British Themed Knits!

When I find entries for the Brit Knits column, I usually come across a knitters or crocheters that have one or two British related items. This week’s feature is British crazy! She has done numerous washcloths, a London skyline cowl and even a London skyline hat. Amazingly talented, knit artist, Kimberly Gintar, makes these intricate patterns look easy.

We asked Kimberly to tell us a little about herself and her pattern;

“I’m an American living in Berlin and decided I needed to design a hat with the wonderful buildings that we have here. Having come from an English and German background, the next logical step was to design a London hat that would depict the interesting points that I visited in London 17 years ago with my boyfriend who is now my husband. I liked how the buildings came out on the hat so much that I decided to make a cowl and wascloths to match. I am now working on a blanket that incorporates the sites as well, it should be a fun project for anyone who loves to travel and see fun places.”

There is no doubt that Kimberly is extremely talented and her love for London shows clearly in her works. If you would like to see how to make her washcloths, hat or cowl you can purchase her patterns on Ravelry. We at Anglotopia are looking forward to seeing all that finished blanket too! Below are  pictures of Kimberly’s amazing  Brit Knits.

    I am a Brit living in Berlin and have had the pleasure to see these knits at first hand at Kim’s knitting club. They made me homesick for London. They are great patterns – easy to follow and knit. Highly recommended.

    I absolutely love these patterns. What a talented person Kimberly is and how kind of her to share her fantastic patterns!! I just went on to Ravelry and bought the hat pattern and the washcloth/potholder patterns. Can you guess what some of my friends and family will be getting for Christmas? I will be eagerly awaiting the blanket pattern!
