A simple textured cowl/neck warmer kit suitable for someone with a basic knowledge of knitting stitches or someone looking for an easy and quick project.
Skills needed are cast on, knit and purl stitches, cast off.
The cowl is knitted in one rectangular piece on single point needles and then the ends are sewn together to make a loop. Everything needed for this project (except the sewing needle) is included in this kit.
The kit comes in a smart and recyclable board pillow gift box, and contains 50g hand dyed Aran weight merino wool, one pair of handmade single point size 5.5mm bamboo knitting needles* (23cm long), a printed pattern and two original design stitch markers. You will need a large sewing needle to complete this project.
Select your yarn colour from the drop down box. Needles and stitch markers will be selected at random from available stocks, but you can request preferred colours (subject to availability) by leaving me a note in the customisation box. See images 9 & 10 for needle and stitch marker colours.
*Please note: new bamboo needles have a tendency to 'hold' the stitches more than metal or plastic, but the more you use them the easier it becomes. The natural oil from your hands lubricates the needles and within a couple of rows you will notice the difference. Bamboo needles are great for beginners as the stitches do not slide about and cause another problem for learners.
