Artist Creates Beautiful Knitted Blanket Inspired By The Colorful Architecture Of Copenhagen

Jake Henzler, aka Boy Knits World, is a Sydney-based artist who spent 6 months knitting a giant blanket inspired by the colorful architecture of Copenhagen. The blanket consists of 55 separate blocks, each of which took the artist hours to finish – but the end result was well worth it. Sadly, the blanket is not up for sale but just in case you feel like making one of your own, Jake has the knitting pattern for sale on his Ravelry page.

The artist says he had learned to knit when he was quite young but only started making things with knitting when he was around 19. “My mum used to knit all the time. Big knits like jumpers and cardigans,” said Jake. “She taught me some of the basics and then I worked from there. My first knits were characters and that’s still a big part of what I do.”

Jake says he has been sporadically writing knitting patterns for the last fifteen years, and people seem to love his works. The artist has a following of over 16k people on Instagram and numerous people have used his patterns to knit their own creations.

When asked why he chose Copenhagen as inspiration for his blanket, Jake explained that the aim was to knit all of the significant buildings from his year of living in Copenhagen.
