Kit for a Knitted Blanket for a Teddy or a Doll
The kit contains:
1 ball of yarn
1 pair of 8mm bamboo knitting needles
Plastic sewing needle
Beginners guide to knitting
This kit is suitable for complete beginners, especially children. Everything that is needed to make the blanket is included in the kit. To make things even easier we have casted on, knitted the first row and 10 stitches on the second row. This way children can start knitting straight away, without having to learn to cast on – something that lots of learners find quite hard to do.
The kit includes chunky yarn and 8mm knitting needles. These are easy to hold and the project will grow quickly, allowing children to see progress which will motivate them to carry on.
We use soft acrylic yarn which is easy to care for, suitable for vegans and perfect for babies – making the final project and ideal gift for a younger sibling.
The kit includes detailed instructions, accompanied by lots of pictures and written in a plain language. There is also a ‘Before You Start’ guide which explains basic knitting terms, techniques and how to read a knitting pattern.
Difficulty Level: 1A – suitable for complete beginners. You will only need to learn and use the basic knit stitch and to cast off.
