Why, hello there autumn, we’ve been expecting you! After an unusually hot summer, we’re glad to see the cooler weather as it gives us a chance to catch up with our favourite autumn trend, the chunky knit. Endlessly comforting and cosy, the chunky knit never seems to go out of style and this year it’s popping up in more places than ever. With their textural look and soft feel, chunky knits can turn your sofa or chair into a haven of comfort. We’ve tracked down ten of our favourites for 2022.
