Tom Daley launches Made With Love knitting kits

has launched his own Made With Love knitting kit brand.

The 27-year-old Olympic gold medalist – who delighted fans with his poolside knitting during Tokyo 2020 over the summer – has unveiled his collection with kits to make vests, flamingo jumpers and even a £220 set to create a customised double blanket.

The 1896 range – which uses biodegradable and renewable pure wool – has been named after the year of the first modern Olympics games.

It features 15 kits, which include £30 for a woolen hat, £70 for a scarf and £120 for a Flamin-GO For It jumper.

They all come with needles, yarn and patterns to create uniquely designs.

He said in a statement: “Over the past two years, knitting has been my saviour. It’s been a form of mindfulness in between training and competing, and a way to pass the time while I’ve been travelling or sat at home during lockdowns.

“I bring my knitting everywhere and I feel like I’ve accomplished something every time I make something new.

“I like to think knitting is making a so I look forward to people giving it a try if they haven’t before, making things they can actually wear.”

The sportsman – who has three-year-old son Robbie with husband Dustin Lance Black – admitted ahead of the Games over summer that he’d be keeping busy during his downtime at the event with his craft hobby.

He said: “I have lots of things to keep me occupied, like my obsession with knitting and crochet.

“I’m planning on bringing a whole extra suitcase of yarn because I’m not going to be allowed out of the village to go to the shops. I want to make sure I’m well stocked.”
