The Learn-to-Knit Kit is just what a knitter-to-be needs to build solid knitting fundamentals! Along with the 16-page Learn-to-Knit Companion (an easy-to-follow instructional booklet), we provide a few essential notions to make the learning process as easy as possible.
In each Learn-to-Knit Kit, you’ll find: the Learn-to-Knit Companion; a Churchmouse tape measure; a darning needle; US 8 (5mm) Clover bamboo circular needle; and the Stitch-Sampler Handwarmers & Ribbed Scarf ‘First Projects’ pattern—all housed in our custom-designed Churchmouse Project Pouch (a $55.25 value)!
Remember to sit in a comfy chair with good light, a cup of tea, and perhaps a knitting friend by your side. And have fun!
Our ‘First Projects’ patterns were designed with Manos del Uruguay’s soft, worsted-weight Maxima in mind. Once you grab your kit, select your favorite color below and get started! You’ll need one skein of Maxima to make the Handwarmers, two skeins to make the scarf, and three skeins to make both projects.
Looking for a different yarn? Berroco Ultra Wool, Brown Sheep Lamb’s Pride Worsted, and Berroco Ultra Alpaca are all great, worsted-weight alternatives! Or head over to the Yarn Finder, select ‘Worsted’ and browse.
