This kit contains 100g of Kinross 4ply in the main colour and 50g of the contrast colour plus the paper copy of the pattern in a project bag. Needles are not included, the shawl is knit on 4mm needles which can be purchased separately. If you have an alternative colour combination in mind please just get in touch or leave a comment in the order comments field as we can do any combination of the current stock of Kinross colours. The shawl is a top-down semi-circular shawl with two lace edgings, the lace edging is knit seamlessly with no grafting or picking up of stitches or seaming. It's a surprisingly straightforward knit with a pretty and unusual end-result.
