After working in the sportswear industry as a clothing designer, Project Weekend founder Spring Harrison began yearning for the slower pace of making her own things again. Each season, Project Weekend release a collection of premium yarn based projects that include all of the tools, materials and patterns so you can create beautiful items for yourself, your home, and for loved ones.
These gift box knitting kits come with everything needed to give someone the gift of a fun DIY knitting project!
About the kit:
Snow days and pom beanies, does anything say "Bring on the holidays!" more than this? Made up with luxuriously plush stitches and a versatile foldable cuff, this classic pom beanie delivers everyday warmth with effortless style.
Project skill level: Learn-to-knit
This classic pom beanie was designed for the first-time knitter and with simplicity in mind. Simple projects with lots of repetition allow you to get into a nice rhythm so your brain, hands, needles, and yarn can learn how to work together to create beautiful stitches. At the heart of it, repetition builds stitch mastery and knitting confidence!
