Item details

Children's Knitting Kit - Learn to Knit Part 1

Learn to knit a Knitten (with a silent n)!

This is a knitting kit specially designed to teach children how to knit.

The kit includes lots of materials and equipment:

• A fully illustrated child friendly knitting guide.
• Wool/Alpaca blend knitting yarn.
• Children's knitting needles.
• A child friendly plastic sewing needle.
• A row counter.
• A "made with love" label.
• Safety toy filling

The guide contains the step by step process of knitting - teaching the user how to cast on, knit stitch, purl stitch and cast off, all with the help of a liitle songbird, using rhymes to help remember how to do each stitch.

Ideal for older children aged 8+, or for parents to teach younger children (and perhaps themselves!) to knit!

Plenty of soft alpaca blend yarn is included, short knitting needles - perfect for little hands, and a safety plastic needle.

Follow on kits available, introducing working with more than one colour. The Owl and the Pussycat knitting kit, or Fox and Hen knitting kit. Available on Etsy in a separate listing.

NB. This kit teaches the English knitting method, not the Continental method, but is available using either UK or US knitting terminology. Please select which option you would prefer when purchasing.

*FREE POSTAGE* within the UK.

Additional policies

Once you order your hand made item, we place an order for yarn. This takes a day or two to arrive. We then hand knit your item, which can take a long time, depending upon the complexity of the item you have chosen. Once the item has been made, it requires assembly, and in many cases (garments), the item will be wet blocked, where it is laundered, and pinned onto boards to dry. Only once the item has been finished to our high standards, will it be dispatched to you.

Our products are unique, quality, hand made items, and are not mass produced, machine made, or imported. Whilst we will make every attempt to ensure your item is dispatched promptly, we ask for your patience. And should you need the item in a hurry, we will discuss the viability with you.

We cannot be held responsible for external postal services. Post to the US takes a minimum of 7 working days. The package, must go through US customs, and delays may be experienced. Should your item not arrive within the expected time, please contact us straight away, and we will do our upmost to rectify the situation to your satisfaction.
