A beautiful collaboration with Truly Myrtle & Loop, London!

Perfect for those days when you fancy a little zing in your step, Zabadoo is a wrap that’ll make you feel alive and kicking, and pretty special.

She’s a large, cosy wrap that’ll work perfectly tossed over your shoulders, wrapped around your neck or snuggled over jeans to add pizazz to your day.

Zabadoo is peppered with textured dots and diagonal stripes that’ll keep you entertained in between delicious panels of relaxing garter. The stripes are a gorgeous illusion created with simple slipped stitches, and you’ll only ever work one colour at a time.

Perfect for experienced knitters and adventurous beginners, Zabadoo is knitted from side to side and includes charted & written instructions.
