The Knit Book is a gift set that is sure to wow any novice knitter. Cath Kidston has created an exclusive yet simple striped scarf design that is the perfect beginner hand-knit project. Using double-knitting weight yarn in six classic, cheery Cath Kidston colours, you can now make your own Cath Kidston scarf. Packaged in a bright floral design, re-useable tin, this gift set includes everything you need to make the scarf including six balls of yarn, one pair of red metal 4mm knitting needles plus a double-sided pattern sheet that gives all the instructions for making up the scarf. In addition, the gift set includes a 48 page paperback booklet containing all the essential how-to-knit information on the basic knitting techniques, including casting on, casting off, changing colours and achieving an even tension across your knitting. There is even an alternative scarf design in case stripes aren't your personal style. With clearly written instructions accompanied by explanatory diagrams, The Knit Book will get everyone reaching for their needles in time to make this cosy scarf.
