Product Details

Skill Level - Beginner

This scarf is for ABSOLUTE beginners who want to learn new knitting skills every 20cm! It has turned out to be really popular with expert knitters seeking a relaxing knit with lots of variety. The knitting kit uses alpaca yarn from British and Irish farms. It uses single pointed needles and we can include lovely bamboo knitting needles.

Just like our other beginners' scarf (The Garter Scarf) you will learn to cast on, cast off, and how to use the Number 1 stitch used in Knitting, the knit stitch.

... Then you will go on to learn Purl, Ribbing, Moss St; AND three other stitch formations of knitting. By the end, and quite quickly, you will have learn more knitting techniques than many experienced knitters. And you will discover how easy they are.

For other styles and sizes check out our Sampler Collection 

All stitches are supported with our HOW-TO VIDEOS

Size: 20 x 160cm - or smaller to suit

Kit includes:

  • Cotton alpaca project bag
  • 250g (225m per 100g) Gorgeous DK yarn made from 75% alpaca/25% sheep's wool
  • Pattern for this, and the Vintage Beginners Scarf
  • Optional 4.5mm needles and tapestry needle

As with all Gorgeous alpaca DK kits, it's warm and cosy, but lightweight and breathes well. The alpaca yarn has a small amount of 100% natural sheep's wool blended in, which makes it easy to knit with, and still retains that wonderful alpaca softness. The scarf can be washed by hand or in a machine on a wool wash at 20 degrees.
