Real Easy Raglan Yarn Kit
Would you like to knit your first top-down sweater but not sure where to start? Our new Real Easy Raglan pattern is a great first garment option, and we thought we'd make it even easier by putting the yarn together as a kit!
The pattern is designed as a my-first-garment project, and suitable for adventurous beginners who have mastered knitting a beanie in the round, and can cast on, bind off, knit, purl, increase and decrease. It is also a fabulous wardrobe staple for those who know what they are doing!
Just pick your size according to the pattern information below, and your favourite colour, and we'll pop the right amount of yarn together for you.
This kit is just for yarn, so make sure you have the right Circular Needles, or grab some from us too!
