Two of Daisies Lil' Scarflette Kit
Hello Two of Daisies!
Our Two of Daisies Lil' Scarflette Kit in collaboration with Lindsay Degen.
Our 'Lindsay' version of the kit is now on PREORDER. We are expecting a new delivery by the end of November and will send the kits as soon as they arrive.
Our most recent kit, was born out of a fabulous collaboration with Lindsay Degen. This graphic scarf is a bold and totally joyful play on colour. Each half is a mirror or the other, like a playing card. We've played with it more by swapping the colours halfway, so the main colour becomes the contrast colour and visa-versa.
This is worn like a neckerchief or a bandana or a 'lil scarf, The colour possibilities are endless, but we have created six versions for you with some of our favourite colours and yarns.
Most of the yarns we have used are British favourites such as Daughter of a Shepherd, Jamieson's of Shetland, Old Maiden Aunt, The Uncommon Thread, Zakami, and The Border Mill.
With Life in the Long Grass, La Bien Aimee, Laines Villaines, and Ito from Europe. Total colour joy!
They are named after the people who chose the colour pairings, and each one is a gem.
The kits come with:
* All of the yarn you need wound off for you (we have wound the yarn if less than a skein)
* The printed pattern booklet
* A very special Two of Daisies bag, which has been designed just for this launch, and is the perfect project bag size for this! We love this bag so much!
You can also purchase the bag on its' own if you would like to get an extra one.

About Lindsay Degen, our fabulous designer:
Lindsay Degen was the 2014 winner of the Ecco Domani Fashion Foundation award, studied at Central Saint Martins in London and at the Rhode Island School of Design before breaking into the textile and knitwear world. Years ago she got to know Loop during her time studying in London, and much of her yarn inspiration came from that as she was beginning her incredible knitting adventures. So, what a joy it is, all this time later, to be doing this collaboration with her!
Lindsay, designing under her brand DEGEN, creates joyful, quirky, and never-dull patterns for the hand knitting community - at times pushing textures and patterns to a high level of experimentation and engineering, with fabulous results. Lindsay has done many collections for New York Fashion Week and is the Director of Collaborations in Apparel at Converse.
