PINKOPOM!

That’s what she said when she saw her new beanie and mittens. And that’s so true! Pink with a pom pom can’t go wrong and the word its just too funny to be forgotten.

Pinkopom is a kit for small kids made from 1 skein of DK weight merino yarn and 1 mini skein of sock weight yarn.

You can choose the cutest combo ever in your local yarn store or just dig in your stash. We all have lovely mini skeins and lonely DK skeins just waiting for something special, don’t we? Or even better: let your kid choose her or his favorite combo!

The design of the kit is simple. Just some finer details and a popping color to highlight your beautiful hand-dyed yarn. It is also easy and fast, and you’ll knit these in a day or two.

The kit contains a pattern for a beanie and mittens for kids from a toddler to approx. school age.
