Alphabet Sampler Blanket Kit


This kit gives you everything you need to make this blanket, except the needles.  If you would like to use different colours just mention it in the order comments section.

This is a fabulous project and creates a real heirloom piece.  The letter squares are all knitted separately and then sewn up at the end (Check out our video of how to do this neatly and simply!), which makes it suprisingly portable!  I knitted mine on the beach in Dorset, square by square...

As shown the blanket uses up 14 skeins of Plump yarn, plus extra for the border.  The kit includes 14 skeins of Plump and a pdf download of the pattern which includes all 26 letter charts.  You will need 10mm knitting needles plus 10mm circulars (about 100cm long) for the border - purely because of the number of stitches involved.

This is a great first colourwork project.

There is a tutorial on how to sew the squares together here.

Finished measurements: 141cm x 72cm

Plump is a pretty standard superchunky (super bulky) weight and can be substituted as such.

Ballband Tension (gauge):

Using 10mm needles over stocking stitch: 10 sts to every 10cm

We have used it on many different needle sizes from 8mm to 20mm according to the structure and drape of fabric we want to produce. The larger the needle, the looser the fabric will be.

Plump Superchunky and Plump DK are made from the highest quality superfine merino and baby alpaca.  These really are special and luxurious fibres and should be treated carefully!  Having said that both yarns are suitable for delicate hand washing.  Use a specialist detergent and do not agitate or twist the fibres to retain the gorgeous softness and shape of your garment.

Because of the roving nature of our yarns (they are single ply, rather than tightly twisted), some shedding may occur.  The best way to deal with this is spray your finished garment with water and leave to dry flat, naturally before the first wearing.  This sets the fibres and should stop any problems.  If you want any further advice just drop us a line at [email protected]

Using your yarn
All our yarn comes in skeins.  Before using you need to wind the skein into a ball or you will get into an awful tangled mess!  If you are not sure how to do this you can watch our video here!
