Introducing: the work from home edit

Published on 11 May 2020 By Sophie Brown 2 min read

In recent months, working from home has become the new normal for many of us. We’ve been setting up make-shift desks on dining room tables, in spare bedrooms and in the crafty corners of our homes.

While fitting work around your home life might be a little tricky, the one thing the new way of working does offer is the opportunity to wear the comfiest of outfits everyday! Whether you’re a loungewear devotee or an up-and-dressed-everyday kinda person, there are lots of brilliant makes that’ll make your new working from home wardrobe a bit brighter!

We’ve got heaps of new and exclusive knitting and crochet patterns from Millamia, Paintbox and your favourite indie designers to help make working from home a little more stylish and a lot more comfortable and cosy!

From seasonal staples and comfy loungewear to pops of colour to make your Zoom meetings sing, there are lots of makes to keep you busy when you shut your laptop at the end of the day!

Dress for the city

Just because you’re not heading into the city to work, it doesn’t mean you can’t inject a bit of city chic into your working from home wardrobe! Millamia’s newest patterns are inspired by city breaks: think cosmopolitan cities, French boulevards and Barcelona breaks!

Add a pop of colour

Working from home doesn’t have to mean loungewear in greys, beiges and blacks! If you’re on video calls a lot of the time, these gorgeous makes are guaranteed to brighten up the grid of people staring back at you. From block colour t-shirts to tops in a rainbow of colours – there’s something for everyone!

Get cosy at home

If there’s one plus side to working at home, it’s being able to get cosy and comfy. When the weather takes a turn for the worst, you’ll delight in grabbing a beautiful homemade blanket and wrapping up with your laptop on the sofa. Whether your home is cool and contemporary or brilliantly bright and colourful, we’ve got loads of blankets and throw patterns that’ll look gorgeous draped over the arm of the sofa (or around your shoulders!).

Create luxe loungewear

Nothing says working from home like throwing on some sweatpants and a hoodie! Make your working from home wardrobe extra special by making one of these fabulous handmade hoodies. 

Organise for your desk space

Keeping organised is half the battle when it comes to separating your home life from your work life – especially when they’re in the same place! So why not get organised by making some brilliant baskets to sort out your space?
