5 cosy knitting kits to make and wear in winter

Watching the weather forecast this morning we realise that although the days are getting every so little brighter and longer winter is still very much upon us! Snow has fallen in Scotland and the forecast is threatening to bring us some of the white stuff down south too! But fear not, if you haven’t already knitted and wrapped yourself up in some of our wonderfully warm alpaca knitwear we ave made a list of our top 5 cosy knits for winter!

Cyrene Jacket

Cyrene Jacket by Purl Alpaca Designs (front view)

First up we’ve got our popular Cyrene Jacket! Knitted on 4.5 mm needles, our Medium yarn creates a thick and warm fabric perfect for this jacket imitating a classic tweed hunting jacket. The shaping at the back waist and under the bust creates a beautifully fitted shape and the clever construction makes this a fabulous garment to make and wear! The body is knitted in one piece and the added benefit of this is that you have an automatic blanket on your lap whilst knitting!

Glacier Cardigan

The Glacier Cardigan is knitted in our luxurious Chunky yarn and it is so incredibly warm! Due to the Chunky yarn and the big needles it knits up very quickly and you’ll be able to wear it in no time, a big bonus now that the cold weather is very much upon us. Treat yourself to a wearable, warm hug!

Alfie Hat

Alfie Hat ivory knitting kit

When leaving the house (although it’s tempting not to these days) a warm and soft hat is the best friend you can ask for and the Alfie Hat ticks all the boxes! Knitted in the round, there are no seams and only two yarn ends to fasten to finish the project. It’s knitted in an easy 1 by 1 rib and is a perfect pattern for someone starting out with circular knitting. It’s equally perfect for men and women and it is one of Kari-Helene’s favourites for those cold days when we exhibit in animal auction marts!

Geronimo Jumper

Originally designed as a man’s jumper, the Geronimo Jumper has proved equally popular for ladies! The beautiful cable details inspired by traditional Aran jumper designs are complimented by the modern touch of contrast collar and cuffs. Should you prefer a more traditional look, opt for the same colour for both the body and trims. The collar is nice and cosy around the neck and the texture creates a thick and warm fabric, perfect for winter!

Miko Dress

Miko Dress - Purl Alpaca Designs

From our latest collection come this beauty, the Miko Dress; a knitted dress complete with long sleeves, pockets and lots of interesting cable details. The shaping through the cable detail creates a very flattering line without being too fitted and clingy. The pockets can easily be omitted should you want a more streamlined look, but we’re totally obsessed with pockets on dresses and love the warm feeling of these knitted ones!

We’re hoping you have found some inspiration in these warm and stylish knitting kits and will be cosy and comfortable for the rest of winter!

Happy knitting,
