Product Description

Marriner Make Your Own Blanket Kit

Make a simple but effective blanket with this easy set, which includes 25 midget sized balls of acrylic yarn in various colours, and a matching paper pattern.

Each kit is specially designed to create an attractive blanket, knitted using simple garter stitch. Each 25g ball of yarn produces a 20cm square. The squares are stitched together at the end with a wool needle (knitting needles and wool needle not included).

The finished blanket measures around 100cm x 100cm.

The kits are based on our own brand of Marriner Double Knit, a high-quality acrylic yarn that is beautifully soft and lightweight. A pleasure to work with, acrylic double knit is also strong, long lasting and machine washable. 

Fun and satisfying, these kts make great starter packs for beginners, or perfect gifts for anyone who enjoys knitting.

A range of colours and designs are available.

Why choose acrylic yarn?

Soft: Comfortable against your skin and very versatile, acrylic yarn is suitable for making everything from fashion garments to blankets.

Durable: This affordable yarn is strong and long lasting. It can be machine washed.

Colourful: Acrylic yarns are often available in a wide range of colours and the hue doesn’t tend to vary too much between dye lots.  Also, it is dyed in large batches so it is easier to match dye lots.

Easy knitting: Easy to work with, acrylic yarn tends to keep its shape. If you make a mistake, you can unravel your stitches and start again without ruining the yarn.

Non-allergenic: Because the fibres are synthetic, the yarn won’t aggravate allergies.
