IS there anyone better than Tom Daley? The Olympic gold medallist and knitter is all over Instagram with his crochet designs.
From crochet fashion, accessories and even knitting sets – here’s how to get that gold medal look.We’re obsessed with Tom’s knitting[/caption]
We may not have a gold meal to stash in a crochet bag or holder, but we have found some of our favourite pieces on the high street.
If you haven’t spotted Tom on your screen yet, then you need to check out the professional diver’s Instagram account ‘Made With Love By Tom Daley‘, where he posts his knitting and crochet sensations.Tom has been spotted knitting at the Olympics on numerous occasions[/caption]
Tom started knitting to raise money for The Brain Tumour Charity following the death of his Dad in 2011 from a brain tumour, with his creations being raffled off to raise funds.
And now the diving sensation is a firm fan of the craft, knitting jumpers, cardigans, dog jumpers, blankets and much more – he even recently knitted a pouch for his gold medal.
If this looks like your thing, then good news; we’ve hunted our favourite crochet pieces on the high street so you can steal Tom’s style.
And if you want to get crafting, we’ve even found a couple of kits for you too.
