This is the box we hope to see given to anyone interested in learning to knit, to help them master the techniques they’ll need but also the inspiration to form a life long habit.
We selected Pom Pom’s Knit How as the base of this kit because it’s a beginner’s book that not only provides a knitting reference and an entry point into a new community. Knit How is a friendly and easy-to-use introduction to knitting. The book includes ten knitting patterns for accessories and garments, along with illustrated techniques, and essential top tips for the beginner knitter, all in Pom Pom’s signature style.
The yarn included is Gilliatt, which is featured regularly in the book so your recipient can cast on straight away. This is a worsted weight yarn that’s perfect to learn with as, thanks to its great stitch definition, the individual stitches are smooth and clear to see. Bamboo needles are smooth but have some grip for those tentative first stitches, and a notebook to keep track of your knitting is always handy. Starting with good habits is important so we’ve popped a knitting gauge in to help with swatching.
We’ve selected some special extras to build up your new knitters tool kit so it’s practical and ready for all future projects to come.
