Castaway Knitting is about gorgeous knitting… for beginners!
Since 2013 I have been sourcing beautiful yarns and pairing them with easy-to-follow knitting patterns to create simple garments that you will love to knit and love to wear.
I put together quirky, delightful kits which contain everything you need to complete a simple knitting project; luxury yarns, wooden knitting needles, bodkin (the needle you need to sew up your finished piece), a ‘hand-made’ label, and clear instructions. All in a handy cotton project bag and tied up with a ribbon.
The best place to start your knitting adventure is with the Totally Vanilla Absolute Beginner Scarf. The kit comes with fully illustrated ‘how to knit’ instructions, but I have also uploaded some short tutorial videos on YouTube that can be accessed via the How to Knit page.
If you feel you have mastered the basic moves and want to try some new techniques or some totally sumptuous yarns, head on over to my etsy shop and have a look around. There are projects for knitting on four needles, circular needles, knitting with cashmere and super-soft merino wool. There are also some lovely accessories and greetings cards there.
I believe that just because you are starting out in knitting, you do not need to compromise on quality or style!
