This Knit Kit has everything you need to knit your own Super Chunky blanket in the colour of your choice (and whichever stitch you fancy!)
If you've ever wanted to try Super Chunky Knitting then now is your chance!
Ideal for someone who knows the basics of knitting - Can you cast on and off? Can you do a knit and a purl stitch? That's all you need to know!
The Kit includes your colour choice of Giant Wool, Giant Needles, and the vital instructions on how to process your blanket once it's been knitted up (further details below) I hand process each of my blankets and have developed an at-home version for you to use in a bath tub or other large container).
Great fun for an experienced knitter, you can buy the kit and ask a friend to make the blanket for you or give the kit as a gift to a keen knitter and cosy enthusiast.
You can choose from a range of 5 colours and the instructions include 4 different stitch options (of course if you're a knitting pro you can whatever stitch takes your fancy!)
Available colours are - Natural White, Mink/Blush, Mid Grey, Bright Pink or Mustard Yellow.
If you're after other colours please take a look at my 'Custom Colour Knit Kit' listing which has more colours but longer lead times. Other colours can easily be sourced so don't hesitate to contact me if you'd like different coloured wool - there may be a longer lead time.
You can choose from 1kg up to 5kg of wool, this will dictate the size of your finished blanket. On average 1kg is around 0.5 square meters examples of sizes can be found at the bottom of this description.
Included in the kit -
Wool, 100% Merino
Needles, 100% Pine wood - 1m long Giant Wooden Knitting Needles
Instructions - Vital information on how to process the blanket once it's been knitted up.
Merino wool is amazing to work with, it dyes really well so is available in a huge range of colours, it's a luxuriously soft wool that is beautiful on the skin.
Important information -
Tension - Tension is vital when it comes to knitting, Unspun wool is wonderful to work with but can be pulled apart relatively easily so keep your tension quite loose.
Everyone is different - Due to the way we knit every blanket will come out slightly differently . If you're after the exact same blanket you've seen in a picture, it's probably best to just buy that blanket. If you're up for creating something of your own then this kit is the answer and you will have a ball!
It's all yours - When you purchase the knit kit it becomes your responsibility. The instructions within it are guidelines and of course you can change them as much or as little as you like. Whether or not you follow the instructions, however it turns out is not my responsibility. All measurements and calculations are approximate, but I can assure you that these kits have been tried and tested on a number of people without any extra help from me, and each time were a success.
These are natural products made from un-spun wool which means pilling may occur. Pulling is a natural result of friction so the more you use the blanket, the more it will wear - Just like if you have a nice woollen jumper you would avoid wearing it all day, every day, so that it can have a longer lifespan.
When cared for properly, unspun wool blankets can have long lifetimes and keep you cosy for years.
Spot clean any spills, dry clean when necessary and trim any pilling occordingly.
