Here's a duo, that will keep you warm on cold winter days - a super chunky beanie and a pair of wristers made with softest merino wool. The hat looks great as a slouchie beanie (as shown on the photos). For more "wintery" look, fold the bottom of the beanie up. That will create two layers of chunkiness around your face.

The kit includes all supplies and tools you would need to make the beanie and wristers shown on the photo. Besides, it has a DVD disc with a complete video course that will guide you through every step of creating your own Manitoba Beanie and Wristers. You will also get access to the online version of this video course, and will be able to watch it any time from any computer or mobile device.

Kits in French have label and pattern in French, as well as French subtitles to the video course.

With the video course you'll see every stitch up-close, in vivid color and high definition. The course is created with an absolute beginner knitter in mind (and that is someone who's never ever knit before), and is packed with useful tips on how to avoid mistakes, how to fix them if they happen, and how to make your knitting experience most pleasant and fun. All instructions are clear, slow and repeated several times.

You will learn how to cast on, knit both in left-handed and right-handed way, bind off, make a seam and weave in ends. You don't need to have any prior knitting experience to work on this project. Manitoba Beanie and Wristers make a perfect first project to help you learn the basics of knitting.

The kit is packed in a stylish gift box with handles. The box also serves as a project bag to make it easy for you to knit on the go.
