Katia Roma

Autumn/Winter 2012 is ALL about accessories!  From snuggly cowls and scarves and berets to the humble bobble hat, all have made an appearance on the catwalk this season.

At Cafe Knit we have something for everyone; knitters, 
crocheters, beginners and experts. Make something for yourself or surprise a loved one with a handmade present this Christmas.

First up is Katia Roma.  This most unusual ribbon yarn crochets up to a fantastic scarf/wrap in a matter of hours.  Available in three rich colourways, its beautiful scalloped gives the scarf a really sophisticated finish.  £13.95 per skein, one skein=one scarf!

This beautiful moss stitch cowl is simple and quick to knit, and is seamless as it is knit on circular needles for a neat finish. Four skeins of the super-soft Debbie Bliss Paloma yarn, a unique blend of baby alpaca and merino, give this scarf bulk, yet without being heavy. It makes a wonderful gift and is perfect for Autumn/Winter.  A kit is available to make this cowl (£29.00) and contains all you need, plus a lovely Cafe Knit knitting bag to keep it all in.

The Trellis Scarf kit is one of our most popular kits.  The beautiful scarf is deceptively easy to knit, but simply stunning. Just one skein of the gorgeous Manos del Uruguay Silk Blend yarn is used to make the scarf which is approximately 140cm long by 22cm in width

This scarf should carry a warning; once you have made one you may be addicted and want to make one for all your friends! They make wonderful gifts and are perfect all-weather scarves; warm but light and airy.  £18.99 per kit.

If you prefer a lighter scarf, the Cobweb scarf is the one for you.  Cobweb Scarf Knitting Kit © is a delicate scarf knitted in garter stitch using two different size needles which gives it a beautiful cobweb effect. Despite this it is really easy to knit and is embellished with beads or sequins which are threaded onto the yarn before you cast on. Kit just £10.99!!
