This pattern is a great introduction to stranded knitting. You don’t need charts, but can practice holding two yarns at the same time, with breaks of plain striped knitting in between. Kits are available here!

Revamped to include adult small, medium, and large sizes!

If you have sensitive skin, go for the Amitola grande as your stripey color….so soft!
