We've always wanted to offer a beginners sock kit - but have been puzzled as to how to go about it given the different methods and needles of choice! HOWEVER - we decided that wasn't going to stand in our way and have worked out a flexible kit! With options to tailor it for your requirements!
1 - Choose your yarn!
Now there are so many shades of Regia 6 ply - to let us know which shade you'd like, click through here and just pop the shade name in the comments when you check out and we will do the rest! The balls are 150g.
2 - Choose your needles!
Kit 1 - Addi Sock Wonders are a small circular needle with metal tips - 25cm from tip to tip - one needle is longer than the other and you use that in your working hand. It's possible to knit a pair of socks with this alone. We will send a 3mm unless you specify otherwise.
Kit 2 - Hiya Hiya Bamboo DPN's (double pointed needles) 3mm 6" - you can knit the whole sock with these.
Kit 3 - This combination would be my preference, using the Addi circular and Hiya Hiya DPNs (double pointed needles) at the heel.
We're using our favourite Winwick Mum (Christine Perry) Basic 6 ply sock pattern as we followed it for our first socks and it's always a top recommendation in the shop. This is still a free pattern available via Winwick Mum's blog - but with Christine's permission we've printed them on a handy sized card so you can carry your kit wherever you go! **The price of the kit covers the needles and yarn - you are not being charged for the pattern.**
You'll also get a Northern Yarn brown paper bag to keep your kit in - or give as a gift.
