Item details

The Arctic Cross Headband Knit Kit

By popular request, I`m very excited to launch Westlake Knit Kits! The Arctic Cross Headband is super chic, super chunky and super fun and simple to make. It makes a very satisfying project for beginners and experts alike, as the super chunky Merino wool knits up so quickly. There's one cable in the pattern, so if you're new to cabling, you can practice the foundations with a this basic step. And if you don't already love working with the chunkiest of yarns, these needles will make you love it! They're a buttery smooth beautiful pale birch wood, handmade in Nova Scotia- an absolute joy to work with.

I`ll send them packaged in a convenient and sturdy box, so they`re ready to be gifted... to a loved one or to yourself;)

PLEASE NOTE: This listing is for a Knit Kit, not the finished headband!! If you were hoping for a ready made headband, check it out here:

The Pattern
Bigger and bigger and bigger- my headband designs keep growing! The Arctic Cross Headband is my 10th original headband pattern, and it's the chunkiest and warmest yet. This easy-to-follow pattern is suitable for beginners knitters. Never knit before? Check out my Beginner`s Guide to Knitting here:

The Yarn
The Arctic Yarn collection features hugely chunky, soft Merino wool that will knit up in a flash.

The Needles
Gorgeous and buttery smooth birch knitting needles, beautifully handcrafted in Nova Scotia.

Kit includes:
- 1 mini skein of chunky 100% Merino in your choice of colour
- 1 pair of 15mm birch knitting needles
- 1 extra 15mm needle for cabling
- 1 brightly coloured darning needle
- 1 pattern booklet for the Plains Braided Headband

Each kit comes in a cotton project bag that I hand dip dyed with indigo, so they`re ready to be gifted... to a loved one or to yourself;)

I am the only knitter behind Westlake, so please allow 5 days for me to knit, package and mail out your handmade goods. Thanks in advance for your patience!

In order to ensure that your Westlake piece reaches you safe and sound, each smaller hand knit item comes swathed in a bubble envelope. Larger orders will arrive in sturdy poly-mailers.

I package and ship items through Canada Post's regular air mail service, which means that, once mailed, your Westlake item should reach your door in:

- 6 to 21 business days (international)

PLEASE NOTE: Holiday shipping deadlines for regular air mail are as follows:
