You may have noticed a whole lot of knitting going on around here! Between launching Kollabora yarn, planning the once-in-a-lifetime workshop in Peru, prepping for VK Live... and just being blown away by the oversized knits and amazing textures coming down the runway-- or down the street-- our love for knitting runs deep. Because we know it's actually very easy to learn the basics, we want to put that power in your hands so you too can start knitting.
To get you going, we've shared two super beginner "Knitting 1.0" projects: the Newbie Knitted Headband and Knockout Fingerless Gloves. They're both fun and chic, yet super simple-- ripe for interpretation once you get the hang of the basic knit stitch. Try them out and be sure to share your version.
Bonus! For added encouragement, enjoy free shipping through January 31 when you use the coupon code "knit now" to stock up on all the supplies you need.
Remember you are not alone! We are all newbies at some point in time (or with some skills). You won't know how easy it is until you try. Check out stories from our first times!
The year is young, so just because we're focused on yarn and needles right now doesn't mean we love sewing or jewelry any less! Stay tuned for lots more kick-ass kits and one-of-a-kind projects.
