Plus, it’s made in Italy, the birthplace of gorgeous textiles. See below for more details and colours available.

These kits are a special-order, we aren’t stocking them in the store on a regular basis but you have the option to order them at any time (they will be available to purchase as long as the manufacturer makes them available to us). Your kit will ship or be available for pick-up once it arrives, and we will contact you. If you need your kit for a specific date please let us know and we can find out if it’s doable. 

Bingen

Bingen is a super-chunky cardigan that will work up FAST on 10mm/US15 needles. It is worked flat in pieces in seamed, making it a bit easier for newer knitters to wrap their head around. Seams might seem a bit old skool for seasoned knitters, but they serve a structural function, giving a garment shape and tailoring that is lost when you knit in the round.
