  • Product Description

      You might already know that we are big fans of Heidi Kirrmaier (Ravelry link) here in This is Knit. So when Joy saw Ship Shape it was only a matter of time before this neat maritime design ended up on her needles! A quick zip around the shelves of the shop and Allino from BC Garn was selected as the perfect yarn match.

      Ship Shape is knit seamlessly from the top down and begins with 2 separate pieces for the shoulder gussets. The yoke is a drop shoulder / raglan hybrid, which makes it perfect for playing with stripes. The body and sleeves are knit in the round.

      We have all fallen in love with Joy's version, so we have put together some kits in our favourite colour combinations to inspire you to cast on your own version too!

      This Kit Includes: 

      • A printed copy of the Ship Shape pattern by Heidi Kirrmaier
      • All the yarn required for your chosen size in the colour combination selected

      Also required but not included:

      • 3.5mm circular needle (or size required to obtain gauge)


      If you plan to add any extra length or make any modifications please ensure you add some additional yarn to your order.


      Please note kits are exclusively available online.
