Find out in Buttonbag's specially written "Little book of Knitting" how to cast on, cast off, and learn all the basic stitches and techniques. Get started with some easy-peasy, little knitted pets, then make a purse and a little bag, and finally try out your new skills by knitting a pair of trendy fingerless mittens and a cute bobble hat. The kit contains everything needed to make all these projects as well as clear simple instructions. Contents: six balls of high quality double knit wool, bamboo needles, needle kit with plastic and metal sewing needles and pins, scissors, tape-measure, felt squares and buttons.
