The Fabulous Story of Stitch London (formerly Stitch and Bitch London)

  • Oscar-winning glory knitwise

    Posted by The Fastener on March 12, 2010

    I’d like to thank my agent, my mum and all my adoring fans for this amazing award… oh wait, that’s another piece I have to write…

    The awards season is with us and what better way to embrace the Oscars, BAFTAs and a whole heap of other filmic awards than with the perfect filmic pattern to go with your favourite contender or simply your favourite film?  I’ve scoured the net and found some brilliant patterns that will quench even the most hard-core film nerds thirst.

    From one of the Daddies of the sci-fi genre – Star Wars.  Who doesn’t want to own their own lightsaber – and a knitted one? Even better. Use the fibre force with a Knitted Lightsaber*, Luke!

    “That’s no light sabre. THIS is a light sabre."

    Star Wars too old school for you? How about the newest Sci-Fi film to hit the big screeen, and one to have already scooped quite a few awards – Avatar? You too can make yourself look like a character from the movie!  Avatar headband*.

    "To become 'taronyu', hunter, you must choose your own Ikran and he must also choose you. And you must wear this silly hat."

    And if neither of these rock your boat, you could create a direct copy of Coraline’s jumper.  Not only is this cool, but it also echoes the fact that the whole of the film is handmade stop motion, even the tiny knitted jumpers! Set your button eyed sights on a Coraline Jumper.

    "I'm your Other Jumper."

    If you just can’t decide which film to create in knitted form, why not make a snack to go with your film viewing? Knitted Popcorn and Pretzel.

    Let's all go to the lobby. To eat knitted snacks. Mmm woolly.

    Here are some more film related patterns that I just had to share with you all:
