Conducted from the spare bedroom of her Sunshine Coast home and born out of the frustration of not being able to source a quality product commercially, In the Knit of Time was initially started to produce a series of luxury bed throws for a B&B renovation project that it's founder Shelley was working on at the time ... and then she got the knitting bug and didn't want to stop!
Timeless luxury that will never go out of style. Made to order, each piece is an expression of our client's own unique style. Many hours go into the making of each hand made bed throw - a lot of patience and attention to detail; a real labour of love.
In this age of mass production and cheap copy cat design, our point of difference is that we offer bespoke luxury hand knitted bed throws, made to order to suit the individual tastes of our clients.
I custom make all bed throws to meet the individual requirements of my clients.. Bed throw sizes include the standard King, Queen, Double, King Single and Single sizes; and couch throws and cushion covers are custom-sized.
In the Featured Products section of this site you will see examples of the colours and yarns I have previously used for some of my earlier pieces, including Italian wool blend Cream, Gun Metal Grey, Teal, Denim Blue and Olive Green, as well as acrylic Baby Pink. The suppliers I use have literally hundreds of colours and yarn types to choose from, so you are only limited by your imagination!
What type of yarn would you like your throw made from?
25% Alpaca; 25% Wool; 50% Acrylic
This yarn is a real favourite of mine and is the yarn I used in most of the featured products on this site. The combination of the wool and acrylic produces really super soft and cosy warm pieces.
100% Wool, other wool blends, and acrylic yarns in a variety of colours and weights.
I have a good collection of both contemporary and traditional throw pattern designs (some of which are featured on the photos on this site). These include a number of cable styles, as well as ribbed, basketweave and seed stitch varieties and combinations, and I am experimenting with new ideas all the time. When you're ready to order your throw we can discuss your specific design ideas - you can choose from one of my existing designs, or I can design something special/unique just for you.
Bed throws are not too dissimilar to those other types of throws that you sling over the back of your sofa, so it only stands to reason that I would make those also - again, made to measure/custom designed. And I make matching cushions as well, some of which are featured in the photos on this site. Pom-Poms and tassels are also a popular add-on. Sewn onto the short ends of a bed throw, or onto each of the four corners of the throw or cushion cover, they can be a fun additional feature.
Your order will take roughly 4-6 weeks to produce depending on the size and pattern you choose. Please allow up to 45 days production and delivery time.
The cost of your custom-made piece will be discussed with you during the design process and you will be provided with a written quote to ensure you are happy to proceed on that basis. The prices currently listed against the bed throw pieces featured on this site are intended as illustrative only (although if you wish to purchase one of these as featured, then you are more than welcome to shop these products on-line as advertised.)
