Patchwork Kit - full kit


Custom Blues and Greys Greens Rainbow Vintage Purples and Blues Pinks and Greys
Adult - one size
100% wool
4 ply

This kit provides all the yarn required to make the Patchwork hat, cowl and mitts. If you want to only make the cowl or the hat/mitts then we have a half-sized kit available. This kit contains 20g of 8 different colours of Miniballs (made using pure wool 4ply spun in Scotland by JC Rennie) plus a 50g cake of the ribbing colour (9 colours in total). We have 6 options listed but we are happy to take requests, there is a 'custom' option if you want a totally different combination or small tweaks can be made by leaving a comment during the ordering process (e.g. a different ribbing colour).

The paper copy of the pattern is included and it all comes in a printed cloth project bag. The pattern is one-size but easily adapted by adding or reducing the stitch count by one pattern repeat. All 3 accessories are knitted in the round on 3mm and 3.25mm needles. Needles are not included but can be purchased separately. A 60cm circular works best for the cowl, a 40cm circular (plus DPNs or a longer circular for the crown) works best for the hat, and a 25cm circular is recommended for the mitts.

The final placement of the patchwork colours is left up to you but if you want any help with this or any aspect of the pattern then please get in touch. The colourwork is done by stranded knitting (fair isle) and it is important to keep your floats loose, but otherwise it is a very straight forward knit.
