There are many people who illustrate their travels or write about them, but Jake Henzler does something else. Under the name Boy Knits World, he creates knitted panels of urban spaces typical for Copenhagen, but also other places he visits.
Henzler spent a year in Copenhagen and fell in love with the city’s architecture. While he was living there, he made his first hand-knitted blanket panel and called it Copenhagen Building Blocks. It’s made of six patterns sewn together into a larger piece. The six patterns include architectural blocks from different city districts: Nørrebro Studios, Østerbro Studios, Hellerup Apartments, Nyhavn Hotel, Nørreport Offices, and Frederiksberg Apartments.
