Description

This sock knitting kit has been designed to go with our Learn to Knit Socks challenge but can be bought on its own as well.

Our Double-knitting Sock Starter kit comes with 2 skeins of Socks Yeah DK (enough yarn to make Socks up to a UK Size 7 when you knit a 6 inch leg), a pair of Clover Bamboo DPNs (3.25mm) and an Addi Sockwonder (3.25mm).  It also includes a digital copy of our Simply the Simplest Sock DK pattern which will be added to your basket automatically when you add this pack.

About the DPNs

The Clover Bamboo Double Pointed Knitting Needles 16cm length. Lightweight and from sustainably sourced bamboo these needles are smooth and strong for effortless knitting. Naturally warm to the touch - great for arthritic hands.

About the Addi Sockwonder

These 25cm mini circulars have short tipped needles like other mini circular needles but one needle is longer than the other (70mm, 45mm), making them much easier to hold when making socks and other small items knit in the round.

Why two sets of needles?

As a sock knitter and teacher of sock knitting, I find that a lot of knitters fall in love with the Sockwonders but still want to turn their heels and shape their toes on double pointed needles.  If you feel this is too much, you can buy the yarn seperately : )

    Everything you could need to create absolutely gorgeous socks! The yarn is soft and vibrant and so easy to work with, top quality needles and super straightforward patterns. A kit curated by someone who knows her stuff and wants to share her joy of sock knitting with everyone.

    I ordered this pack to go along with the sock challenge with Knit School and I am absolutely delighted. The yarn is so soft and beautiful. The kit is divided in two skein that make it easy to prepare for each sock. I live that there is two options of type of needles included in the kit for you to try and see what suits you best. Would definitely buy more of this yarn.
