I think many of us would be very pleased with rocking chairs being added as a minor gameplay item (a la the windchimes, drinks tray, or windmills of Backyard Stuff - not the main focus but fitting with the theme). These would be particularly useful for elder Sims gamplay!
Another gameplay item could be a sort of multipurpose crafts table where knitting could be completed alongside woodworking and similar crafty activities already in the game (flower arranging maybe?). Knitting would also be able to be completed away from the table with knitting needles/yarn ball in the Sims inventory.
I would love the idea of certain colours of yarn being purchasable but then "rarer" colours could be implemented using dyes from harvestables (i.e. flowers, berries). These harvested based knitted items could be sold for more, and also provide special moodlets?
EDIT: This may belong moreso in the "what should we be able to knit" thread, but I think it'd be more resource-efficient for the devs if some of the knittable items were instead new swatches for previously designed items (i.e. new bedspreads for existing frames, new couch cushions for existing couches, new curtain swatches, new children's toy swatches). This would increase the amount of knittable items, but not take away from other resource-intensive object creation.

We’ve seen lots of wonderful suggestions on the forums about Knitting gameplay. We’ve decided to make an official thread to gather these ideas in one place to make it easier for our design team to review your suggestions.
Being able to knit clothing, toys, and household items is obviously a must, but what else are you looking for with knitting in The Sims 4?
Gift giving? Profitable Crafting? Funny failures?
What kind of interactive knitting gameplay objects would you like to see?
Yarn basket? Rocking chair? Craft Table? Something else?
We've seen "teaching other Sims to knit" come up a lot. How do you imagine this would work? Are you familiar with our existing "Mentoring" system that let's Sims with high skill levels teach other Sims those skills?
Please share with us what is important to you
PS – We have a separate thread for crafted clothing and object suggestions here: https://forums.thesims.com/en_US/discussion/971040/what-should-we-be-able-to-knit/
Please continue to post your thoughts on WHAT your Sims can knit on that thread.
