You know that we love a bit of knitting here at Mollie and we also love a good celebration (cake and craft? Yes and yes) which is why we’re celebrating We are Knitters 8th birthday! We Are Knitters bring a whole new luxury meaning to the world of knitting and we’ve always loved their kits, yarns and patterns.

We Are Knitters – past to present

As the leader of knitting kits in Europe, We Are Knitters is an international knitting fashion and lifestyle brand founded by María José Marín and Alberto Bravo. From the day it first began, We Are Knitters dedicated themselves to recreating the ancient craft of knitting and transforming it into something comtemporary and fresh. In just seven short years, the brand evolved into the go-to website for knitting kits and yarn.

Just like us at Mollie, We Are Knitters noticed the positive benefits knitting can have on mental health, mindfulness and even physical heath (knitting has been proven to help improve motor functions!), and made easy-to-follow kits in various skill levels. Their kits are sold worldwide in the following levels, so there really is something for everyone:

  • Beginner
  • Easy
  • Intermediate
  • Advanced: kits available in knitting, crochet, arm knitting, petit point

Plus they’ve got loads of online video tutorials, patterns, techniques and tips so anyone can learn to knit, and benefit from its healing crafty powers.

Since their creation in 2012, they’ve grown a big old community just like us #molliemakers. There’s now a million We Are Knitters all around the world who’ve organised 380 knitting parties! That’s over 3500 knitters joining together to craft – what a dream.

We also love that they’ve grown into a truly sustainable brand with their minimal plastic policy which aims to avoid using plastic wherever possible. Every kit comes in an eco-friendly paper bag with 100% beechwood knitting needles or crochet hooks, so you can craft more consciously.

Let’s celebrate!

To celebrate their 8th birthday, We Are Knitters are giving you a 30% discount site-wide from 22nd-25th September. They’ve also released limited edition mobile phone cases and grips so you can celebrate knitting in style. If you fancy giving knitting a go, upping your knitting game, or starting  your Christmas shopping early, now’s the time!
