It’s knitting weather! And if you’re dying to create an adorable accessory for your tot but are creatively-challenged like us, Wool and the Gang knitting kits are a great place to start.
The company, which sells ready-made adult clothing with celebrity fans including Ed and Christy Turlington Burns, Meryl Streep and Marion Cotillard, just launched a collection of knitting kits that helps you make innovative wooly wear for the mini set.
Keep tiny hands fashionably toasty with a striped scarf that has built-in pockets ($79) — perfect for the child who loses everything! Or, wrap your kid’s noggin in a chunky hood ($69, left) that’s also a scarf.
There are six kits available, all for beginning level knitters. For the slightly more advanced, there’s the Oh! Baby Set ($105) made of 100 percent Peruvian alpaca, which is the perfect gift for the tiniest (and trendiest!) newborns. Still want more of a challenge? You can search the site for a slew of advanced projects.
And with eye-popping colors like Lipstick Red and Magic Mint, your Wool and the Gang hand-crafted design is guaranteed to get at least one, “Where did you get that?” comment from fellow moms.
Wow them by saying you made it yourself!
