New Patterns and Kits for Christmas

A few ideas for Christmas?  It’s only weeks away, yes I’m sorry, I shouldn’t mention the C word, but I did.  So here goes a few suggestions:

Sock yarn slouchy beanies, these are a breeze to knit and the pattern will be free with the yarn purchase, otherwise pattern available separately for £3.00.  Here’s mine ‘in progress’  as the pattern is just finished the testing phase.      I’ve made mine in the less slouchy version, ladies size using the Peach/Pink shade (10).  Denise, our sample knitter is making the mens extra slouchy in the Brown (12) shades of Austermann Step, photos to follow.

 Kid Silk and Palila Scarf, Shawl or Wrap kit, contains yarn to make either a scarf, narrow V shawl.  Add an extra ball of kid silk if you want to make a wider V Shawl or the Wrap.     Usual kit price is £15, on offer at £12.    A quick and easy knit using one strand of each yarn, knitted on large needles and looks lovely.

Sock hats and Mitts, buy a ball of Austermann Step sock yarn and we’ll email you a basic hat and fingerless mitts pattern.   Nice selection of colours from brights, pastels. neutrals and classic shades.    Just put a comment on your order of ‘please send free adult hat/mitts pattern’

Textured Hat and Mittens set, a quick knit, over a few evenings.  Uses Austermann Merino Silk, a super soft yarn in a range of classic shades.   Hat and Mitts take 2 and 1.5 balls of yarn respectively.   I’m also working on a cowl pattern to match which will be available later in the week.    Pattern is £4 for hat/mitts and cowl in a variety of sizes from child to adult.      If you buy the yarn for the set, you’ll get the pattern emailed to you free.
