Are you like us, with a long list of knitworthy loved ones and a looming, unmovable deadline? Maybe even starting to panic knit? This year, more than any other in recent memory, I’m feeling the need to create handmade gifts. In a year that’s been painfully short of hugs, I want to send a little piece of myself to everyone I love this year. That’s all well and good, and a beautiful sentiment, but the reality of it is that I could knit my fingers to the bone over the next few weeks and still fall short. Every year it’s the same story: plans of shawls and socks and even a sweater here and there. Plans that are ultimately whittled down as the leaves start to fall and the temperatures drop. That feeling of pawing through thicker and thicker stash yarn to conjure up faster and faster projects.
How about taking a breather and casting on a quick bulky hat for your husband, or for your niece and nephew who live up north, or the kind neighbor who shovels your walk when it snows? Top it off with a fabulous pom pom and finish it with a charming tag, and even the simplest stockinette stitch will look like it came from a posh boutique, and your knitworthy loved one will be warm, cozy, and stylish.
This kit would make a great gift for your knitting bestie, too!
Each kit comes with a skein of Why Knot Fiber Swift (100% superwash Merino; 106 yards/ 100g) in your choice of four great colorways, an Ikigai faux fur pom available in your choice of ten colors, and a vegan leather tag to finish it off.
Choose your yarn and pom pom color combination from the drop-down menus and you’ll be able to see how the colors look together. Each kit will come with one tag, either Knit The World or Don’t Lose Me. If you have a preference, please note it in your order comments.
We’ve compiled a great list of hat knitting patterns that will work with this kit from designers we’ve collaborated with on past projects over on our blog for your inspiration
