A Shaker peg, a pair of Levis 501s, a shingled New England cottage… The effortless balance between beauty and function. We’d like to think that our Simple Hand Warmers + Hat are a worthy addition to this list of pared-down classics!
The truth is, this handsome kit is already a Purl Soho classic, an update of what-we-used-to-call our Learn to Knit Hat + Hand Warmers Kit. Like the original version, this one makes an adult pair of hand warmers and a hat using two skeins of Purl Soho’s Worsted Twist, a yarn so soft and beautiful that, even if this is your very first knitting project, you’ll proudly wear the fruits of your effort when you’re done!
So what’s new about this kit? The name, of course, but also its earthy new palette, as calm and lovely as a memorable walk in the winter woods. Otherwise, we didn’t tinker with a pattern that wasn’t broken. Geared for first-time knitters, we walk you through every single step of the way!
Both the hand warmers and the hat are constructed from basic rectangles that you sew into shape with a single seam. And in garter stitch, there’s no purling required… Simple, right?
From total beginners to old knitting pros, our new Simple Hand Warmers + Hat Kit is an educational experience that also happens to be pure knitting fun!
