Village Blanket Kit


The Village Blanket concept is simple and suitable for anyone with basic knitting skills.  The kit includes instructions for 8 stitch patterns that can be knit in squares or long strips.  Combine them together or use on their own. The 8 stitch patterns are chosen because they are simple but decorative and make a good looking but functional blanket.  The Sheep's Back wool is extremely economical - you're buying directly from the woolgrower, making it perfect for knitting blankets without breaking the bank.

Knit using double strand wool (knit from 2 balls at once), on large needles - make for yourself or as a gift.  This is an efficient and interesting way to knit a larger item like a blanket.    

Note - photo shown on left is an example of how the different stitch patterns can be used.  This example was knitted on larger needles (12mm).  

Included in the kit:

- 750g wool (7 x 100g, 1 x 50g balls),  Natural NZ wool (This is enough to make a small blanket equivalent to 15 squares or approx. 1m x .6m)

- 7mm quality bamboo needles (33cm length) 

- 7mm cable needle

- Knitting Instructions booklet

- Full colour instructions for 8 different stitch patterns suitable for blankets, use either on their own or combine

- Measuring tape & sewing up needle

- Calico carry bag

If you would like to knit a larger blanket, you can purchase additional wool yarn.  Recommendation: Medium size 1.4kg total, Large size 2kg total.  (Note - this is based on knitting entirely in garter stitch which produces the heaviest of stitch patterns)
