Knitting novice? How about a Born to Knit Kit!

Are you a knitting novice? A Born to Knit Kit is the perfect way to get started!

By learning to knit, or teaching someone else how, you can help a child somewhere feel safe and warm.

This kit includes a beautiful, soft 50g ball of Patons 8ply 100% pure new wool, a pair of 4mm bamboo knitting needles, a sewing needle, a sticker sheet and full instructions for how to knit.

One Kit contains enough materials to make a 20cm square.  You can either keep knitting to make a complete blanket or send us your square and we’ll include it in one of our blankets.

The kit also comes with a postcard that you can send back to us, sharing your Born to Knit experiences!  We have already received many beautiful stories from many knitters, including this lovely message from two young knitters in Horsham VIC who received a Born to Knit Kit from their aunty for Christmas.

“I am so pleased my Aunty bought me this kit for Christmas. I am really happy that I am helping other children to stay warm.”

“I am so glad that my Aunty gave me the Born to Knit Kit. It has made me realise how lucky and spoilt we are and it feels really good for me to help the people who aren’t as fortunate as us. I would like to give them the best wishes in life. I am now going to try to help a lot more so people who don’t have much have a bit more.”

Born to Knit Kits are available at the Save the Children online store.

    May I know if only yarn that is 100% wool can be used? Would yarn that is a mix of acrylic and wool be fine too?
    Also, are iron on stickers alright for decorating the squares?

    Thank you! (:

    • Hi Elison!
      Thank you for your query. We do prefer 100% wool, as wool is more comfortable, more fire retardant, and tends to last longer. Most importantly, they keep children warmer.
      However, we do also accept donated squares and blankets using acrylics or blends.
      Iron stickers are fine, as long as they are securely fastened and do not present a choking hazard.

      Happy knitting!
