Good evening everyone! Since we are in mid swing of the first day of relaunch of our website there are some 'things' not quite up and running yet!

To kick us off here is a FREE KNITTED BEANIE DIY PATTERN below using our cotton and banana yarn. The softest ethical yarn in the universe. More to come! 

Beautiful knitted beanie pattern written by the lovely Saskia from Saskia's Ark. Known for her bespoke knitted toys, she has written a beanie pattern especially for us! 



Yarn: 2 x 100g balls of cotton and banana yarn – use the yarn from both balls to double the strands.


Needles: 4mm Double Pointed Needles or Circular Needles alternatively this pattern can be used on Single Pointed needles
