The Soho Snood Knit Kit
Our modern and cosy chunky Soho Snood Knit Kit is a great alternative to a scarf, and it’s reversible too. Made in a classic stocking stitch pattern but with an interesting reversible twist, it's a perfect all-season accessory. Just choose your favourite colour combo!
In your knitting kit: Clear knitting pattern for beginners, premium merino wool knitting yarn, knitting needles, tapestry needle, 20 page how-to-knit help booklet and Knit Kit Company project and storage bag
Size: one size, best for adults and older kids
Easy-ish level: perfect for a confident beginner, there are a few skills to learn (for example mattress stitch) but with our help booklet and some practice this is a fantastic project for new knitters.
Born in the city and related to our lighter weight Sirena snood which was inspired by Edinburgh's windy days. Anyone who has ever visited Edinburgh knows that the wind blows. A lot. Scarves are great but when you need to keep your cool on a windy day but keep EXTRA cosy at the same time you just can't beat the Soho Snood. It's the perfect accessory for those morning walks to work, keeping cosy on station platforms, bracing strolls to school and late night totters.
This is similar to our Sirena snood but the chunkier, cosier, winter version!
*Please note, colours may vary slightly according to dyelot and your screen!
About the Soho Snood Knit Kit
WHAT WILL YOU LOVE ABOUT THIS KNIT KIT?
The Soho Reversible Snood is a gorgeous, contemporary accessory - great for adults and teens. Easily worn with leisure wear as well as smarter clothes, it's a versatile and enduring item. Knitted in stocking stitch, it's got a lovely smooth surface and because it's double thickness (and reversible) it means it's super cosy and you can switch the colours to match your wardrobe. Flashy on one side and subdued on the other, or flashy and flashy - you choose...
In this knit kit you will also learn how to change colours and yarns, and finish and tidy up your project with some clever invisible seaming. It’s an easy knit but best for confident beginners, as the seaming takes a little extra concentration (it’s made in one piece and sewn together with invisible seams). Made in our gorgeous super chunky premium merino wool knitting yarn it's soft, cosy, bouncy and will keep you warm but not overheat you.
