  • Tapestry needle for final touches
  • Stickers and embroidered label we can attach to our project

I enjoyed knitting the Downtown snood within a few hours. This snood is made by casting on 17 stitches, and the seed stitch pattern done by doing *K1, P1* until 54 rows are completed. The rectangle is then folded and stitched using the tapestry needle to complete the snood.

This project came with Peruvian chunky wool, which is very soft and pleasing to work with. The 15 mm wooden needles included in this kit is made in Spain, and it was easy to work with. This $70 beginner level kit will be enjoyed by knitters of all levels, as it is a satisfying and fun project. I like how their website has videos and tutorials we can refer to. They also have free patterns.
