10 Celebrities that Love to Knit Too!

It’s obvious that celebrities live very different lives than most of us, but that doesn’t mean they don’t have their own methods of relaxation. Knitting is a hobby practiced by individuals all around the world; some people whom you may not even suspect! The following ten celebrities who knit may surprise you. 

Demi Lovato

When we picture Demi, we see a young creative musical artist who takes the stage by storm. What we don’t know about the 29-year-old is that she uses knitting to unwind in her spare time. She has been seen on many occasions knitting away on long flights and car rides while touring the globe. 

Daisy Ridley

When Daisy isn’t flying through the universe in Star Wars, she is knitting scarves and sweaters - something we absolutely wouldn’t expect from a Jedi! Daisy has even posted photos online of her wearing clothing she has knit.
