This yarn kit was originally designed for the Twenty Four Birds MKAL shawl (Ravelry link) by Helen Stewart of Curious Handmade but can be used for anything your heart desires. There is enough yarn to make a large sized shawl.

Patterns are not included with this Yarn Kit, however if you are interested in pattern ideas please check out our Knitting Patterns page.

Tough Stocking is our most popular yarn base. It is the perfect yarn for any project from socks, mittens, hats and gloves to shawls, garments and baby clothes. Merino for warmth and elasticity, nylon for strength. Moderate twist means good stitch definition.

Hand dyed yarn is a work of art - no two skeins are the same. We recommend that you order enough yarn to complete your project, and that you alternate skeins every couple of rows to avoid obvious colour differences.
