K.I.Y. (knit it yourself)

K.I.Y. (knit it yourself)

While in NZ I stumbled across these great K.I.Y. kits by knitwear designer Nikki Gabrielle. Now whilst Nikki’s knitwear designs are truly drool worthy for any wardrobe, she has also adapted a “you can do it too” approach to her work by releasing 2 construction kits showing you exactly how you can knit yourself a beautiful non-grannyfied garment in the comfort of your own loungeroom. Nikki also offers hand made ebony knitting needles, as well as bespoke alpaca and wool yarn.

I’ll be stocking bits and pieces of Nikki’s kits in my shop, but if you can’t make it to grab yourself one, you can also buy them online here.
