Strikaholic – it is almost knitted hygge!

Anya Jensen14th November 2016

I am probably one of the only people in Denmark who rarely wears knitted jumpers. I have many knitted scarves. I even have a stunning knitted jacket and a poncho, but no jumpers!.  However, I am a huge fan of using knit in the interiors, and I have recently discovered the beautiful work of Dorte Niedziella,  the designer behind Strikaholic. Already in early childhood, Dorte Niedziella took a strong interest in knitwear and designing in general; an interest which has increasingly come to define her private as well as her professional life.

I have fallen head over heels in love with the flatlays from her AW2016 lookbook. Remember my tips on how to create your own flatlays right here.

Dorte become fascinated with pattens and design on a trip to New York, and that became the start if her succesful business. The name StrikAholic is constructed by the Danish noun “strik”, meaning knitwear, and the English suffix “aholic” denoting a person addicted to something. The two components in combination form the pun: Strikaholic (i.e. knit-aholic).

You can find much more cool knits on her webshop. Brilliant stuff if you want to get cozy and have a good old hyggelig time in the colder months.
