A Treat Box For The Yarn Obsessed

Do you like to have a special project to cast on, just for the festive season?

Are you always hoping someone will surprise you with a yarn-themed gift?

Then it's time to treat yourself (or an equally knit-obsessed friend) to a Festive Surprise Gift Box from This is Knit!

This beautifully presented gift box contains some very specially selected yarn, an engaging shawl pattern designed exclusively for the set, together with some delightful bonus notions and goodies.

While the exact contents are a surprise, you can choose a broad theme from the two inspiration images shown. These images were the starting point for the creation of one full skein of luxury yarn and five accompanying mini skeins, all from Tara of Irish Artisan Yarn.


Your Festive Surprise Box will contain:

  • 200 g of luxury fibre yarns from Irish Artisan Yarns (one full skein and five 20g minis skeins, all in a blend of merino, yak and nylon)
  • A full colour booklet containing the "Aoibhneas" shawl pattern, specially designed by Eimear of Plays With Fibre
  • And more exclusive (and useful) surprises!

Pattern Skill Level:

The design is suitable for intermediate knitters. Some of the methods used to create textured stitches may be unfamiliar, but the techniques are fully and clearly explained.

Full charts are provided and a digital version can be sent upon request so that charts may be enlarged tablets or computers.

Beautifully packaged nice little treats and good pattern. A little bit of chocolate would have topped it off. Can't wait to start on the Christmas break
