We’ve knit the beginners blanket as a long runner in Emerald, and a square lap blanket in emerald and mustard stripes.

Our ‘Snug as a Bug’ Beginners Blanket Knit Kit is crammed full of as much yarn as you like, to make a blanket as big or as small as you fancy.

The perfect knit kit for brand new beginners – walking you through a few easy steps to make the blanket of your choice. It sounds simple – because it is! Using our beautiful Super Chunky Merino Yarn in either one or two colours.

Our handy table (in the images) shows you how much yarn you will need for your beginners blanket. Please remember that all measurements are approximate.

Knit on lovely big 15mm knitting needles the stitches have a beautiful drape and stretch and work up quickly. Even if you’re a slow knitter, just doing a few rows a day you’ll see it grow! The kit includes circular knitting needles but you use them like ‘normal’ needles.
