Today’s new pattern is Wendy. This chunky and cosy ponytail/messy bun beanie is worked in double moss stitch throughout, in super-soft microfiber yarn. The pattern includes four sizes. Read all about it here: http://www.knittingpatternsonline.com.au/Wendy.html
Abbraccio yarn is chunky, beautifully soft and has a lovely drape. Being 100% microfiber, it is perfect for those with sensitive skin, and for those who don’t enjoy the scratchy feeling that some pure wool yarns have. This yarn is available for sale from my Knitting Patterns Online website and you’ll find the details and colour range here: http://www.knittingyarnsonline.com.au/Abbraccio.html
Wendy is also available as a knitting kit which includes a printed copy of the pattern and one ball of Abbraccio yarn. You can purchase a kit here: http://www.knittingyarnsonline.com.au/Wendy.html
My first lot of knitting kits are now available online – woo-hoo!
I currently have kits for beanies, slippers and a neck scarf, in a variety of yarns, and I will be adding more styles over the coming weeks and months.
Since the modern yarns don’t always fall into the old ply system, it can be confusing working out which pattern you can use with which yarn. I hope that by offering these kits, it will simplify the process for you. Each kit contains a printed pattern, along with the yarn required to knit one item. The packaging isn’t fancy but the cardboard box is recyclable and I think that’s more important than being pretty.
These kits can be posted worldwide and so there are no surprises when deciding if the kit is right for you, the listed price on my website includes postage to various locations around the world.
To see what kits are currently on offer, please visit the following link to search the knitting kits available, either by yarn, or by project type, and make sure you keep coming back to see what new styles become available:
