Nothing beats the feeling of warm socks during wintertime. Easy ribbed socks are super fun to knit! They are knitted from the top down, with cast offs and increases, which makes the design on the heel vary from the traditional type. With these nice socks, you truly give someone a feeling of KOS!

The icing on the cake for any outfit this season. PetiteKnit has drawn inspiration from Stockholms fashion. A gift that is both cute and functional, and which is guaranteed a lot of use. The Stockholm hat is knitted using merino wool and mohair, which makes it chunky and nice.
