The great story of K-nit began back in the Spring of 2013 in a garden cabin full of old domestic knitting machines and assorted surplus wool. Carole wanted to clear the space so rather than give the wool away set up a working machine in the sun, hooked up some random colours and started knitting. Hours later there was a small stack of hats that were intended gifts for friends and family but Carole's two sons had another idea. By taking the distinctive, unique style and putting it together with a love for the outdoors.....K-nit was born!


Over the first 3 years we skilfully knitted all of our headwear by hand, selecting random colour combinations and patterns for each hat. This meant that every item was one-of-a-kind which provided the opportunity for our customers to grab something completely unique to them.
