While band members use racial slurs and smoke weed, Harry Styles likes to knit!

As if Harry Styles didn't have enough to do, what with getting his weekly perms and having to shoehorn himself into those exceptionally tight jeans of his every morning, he's apparently decided to add a new hobby to his ever growing list of past times; knitting.

If you bump into Harold on one of One Direction's few days off, don't be surprised to see him getting a ball of multi-coloured wool out of his man bag and settling down under a knee blanket, because apparently his favourite way to relax is doing a few rows of knitting.

But only if he has time in between going down the Women's Institute to give his friend Hilda a jar of gooseberry jam and playing a round of bowls with Frank from next door, obviously.

“Harry has always been able to knit, he finds it relaxing," a know-it-all insider apparently told the Daily Star.

While we find it hard to imagine curly chops dropping from the womb with his knitting needles in hand, the source continued regardless: "But he’s never put as many hours in as he is doing at the moment.

“He says it’s the only way he can unwind after hours of listening to fans screaming for 1D. The other lads tease him for it, but he doesn’t care.

“Harry joked he’ll be knitting them all Christmas presents," they added?

So willy warmers all around is it? Bagsy Niall's has bells on it so the others can hear when he's rading the fridge.

What do you reckon - like the idea of Harold crocheting Louis a tea cosy or think whoever this blabbermouth is was just being a knit-wit?
