Knitting with Attitude

Our Story

Knitatude was born in January of 2012 out of a love of learning how to knit but never came into fruition until April 2013.  It started with the search of that ever eluding infinity scarf, to the picking up a set of needles, a hell of a lot of swearing and very large bunch of supportive friends. Knitting began as a hobby and has now become what you see here today: Beautiful knits and a sassy chick with ever changing hair.

Chantal is a 29 year old self taught knitter from Calgary Alberta, Canada. Born in the frigid - 30 degree weather "being warm" has never been a thing for this lady. You can usually find her wearing the largest oversized knit sweater she can find with fleece lined tights, knee high socks and an infinity scarf wrapped around her neck. Basically if you picture the average "fall fashion" Pinterest chick you've got Chantal - just add 20 more pounds and some bright ass purple hair.
