VW Campervan themed knitting kits just in time for Christmas

We’ve just added some Campervan and Beetle themed knitting kits to our website in case your looking for that extra “little something” for your Christmas gift list.

Whether you decide to keep it for yourself or gift it as a special gift is entirely up to you!

Each kit contains yarn, a pattern and a gift bag just in case you do decide to give it away!

You can choose to have a Beetle, a Bay Campervan or a Splitty Campervan Cushion Cover or maybe you would prefer to have a Campervan Bag which can also be used a a tablet cover for anything up to Apple iPad size!

At £15 for a cushion kit and £12 for a bag kit hopefully it won’t break the bank either.

Happy knitting!

Make our Knitting Patterns your own by personalising them

I love the fact that people use our patterns as a guideline, making them personal by using their own colours and adding embellishments.

I just wanted to share a couple with you.

First is a Beetle Cushion Cover which Alison adapted to look like her own VW Beetle, Bluey.  I think she has done a fantastic job!

Next is this version of our Campervan Blanket (Combined Splitty and Bay patterns) made by Eva.  I love it!  Its cheerful summer colours just make you want to dash to the beach (though maybe I’ll wait for Summer to come back before I do).

Eva made it for her son and I think it looks fantastic.

Thanks to both Alison and Eva for allowing us to share these with you.

Happy knitting!

 

Anyone fancy knitting a Campervan Christmas Jumper?

Hot off the press just in time for you to knit up as Christmas present for your favourite Campervan enthusiast! (or you could keep it yourself).

This pattern is for a snuggly hooded jumper made in lovely soft chunky yarn.  It has extra long cuffs with a thumbhole to keep your hands toasty, a double thickness collar to stop the drafts and a hood to keep your ears warm. Perfect for slouching!

It’s a unisex design and goes from a 32″ up to a 44″ chest.  It’s not a baggy jumper so if you like a looser fit, go up a size.

The pattern is available as a PDF document via our online shop for a price of £1.99

Stay snug!
