Knit your Christmas Stocking, designed by Judith of Needlecase, using British Jacob yarn from West Yorkshire Spinners.
I love knitting items for the home using this beautiful wool, and I like to make the most of the natural colours of the yarn and design something that really shows them off.
This yarn looks amazing when used for cable knitted items with fantastic stitch definition, the natural colours are ideal for that cosy, scandi look.
You can choose the combination of colours which best suits your decor. The 100% British Jacob wool is beautiful and very good quality, creating a household item which is both attractive and hard wearing. The wool can be washed by hand at low temperatures should you need to do so.
If you are looking for a gift for a knitting friend I believe that this knitting kit is perfect. The pattern is easy to follow for those who have not knitted for a while or who are just learning but interesting enough for those with more experience to appreciate it. I hope you love it as much as I do.

- Pattern which you will receive in 4 separate newsletters over the advent period
