LEVEL 1 - Absolute Beginner Knitting Kit

Welcome to our new range of knitting kits in beautiful  100% British wools

Knitting for babies is a great way to learn to knit, and something handknitted makes a meaningful gift or something lovely for your little one.

If you never knitted before this is a great first project for you. Level 1 kits are all designed from knit stitch squares or rectangles, so as simple as it gets. The levels are designed to build on each other to increase your skills and confidence.

This sweater pattern is written for four sizes, so suitable for 0-12 months and is knitted in garter stitch which gives it a lovely texture.  

The wool comes from the Shetland Isles and is aran weight - perfect for chilly days.

The kit has 2x100gm skeins of wool, a ‘How to knit’ booklet, and step-by-step instructions for every stage of knitting and making up the sweater, as well as a wool needle and wooden knitting needles. If you are making the sweater as a gift we have included a ‘Handmade by me’ gift tag, and the box the kit comes in is perfect for re-packaging it as a gift.


Available in both deep and rich, and soft and subtle, colours with names  reminiscent of a weekend in the Cotswolds – Gingerbread, Sloe gin, Night sky, Wisteria,  Turtle dove, Frost, Love-in-a mist - all so lovely that choosing is hard.


Made from:

100% Shetland Island wool

All recyclable and reusable packaging



Everyone knits to a different tension, which affects the finished size, and all babies are different sizes and grow at different rates, so these sizes are very approximate.
