Knit kit: Chunky Rib Scandi Beanie
This knit kit takes two strands of wool from the Gotland DK3 wool and knits them together to make a beautiful, warm and quite waterproof hat. The design is a chunky rib that would look good on anybody and is stretchy so that it fits most heads. Everything that you need is included in the kit - the two balls of wool, 1 x knitpro 4mm circular needle and 1 x knitpro 5 4mm double pointed needles. (These needles are passed on at cost, and are not the cheapest but are nice to work with!). There is also a stitch marker and a darning needle for finishing off.
Clear instructions are included, and although this pattern makes a beautiful, professional-looking hat, it does not demand a huge range of skills and is relatively easy.
These kits are great presents - or are a good way to get back into knitting. A great project for the dark winter months!
