Firstly why choose Tundra? Accessories and garments knitted with Tundra enjoy a weightlessness but with all the enveloping warmth you’d expect from a bulky weight yarn. At just 3 stitches per inch Tundra knits up fast making it perfect for whipping up a last minute handmade gifts. The blend of fine Merino wool, baby alpaca and silk, results in a plump hank that creates warm and delightfully soft accessories that are loved by everyone.
Cabrillo Hat, Cowl and Mittens
The Cabrillo hat, cowl and mittens by Juliana Lustenader are all worked in the round with only two colours used per round. If you’re looking for quick gifts to knit it might not be the best time to try a new technique but if you’re an adventurous beginner this set is great for learning stranded colorwork in the round.
For the entire set as pictured, you’ll need three skeins of your main colour and two skeins each of contrast colour 1 and contrast colour 2. One skein of each colour will be enough to make either the cowl, hat or mittens.
These Simple Wristwarmers would make a great teacher gift. Knitted in just one hank of Tundra they knit up in no time and feel luxuriously soft and indulgent when worn. Choose a neutral shade for a classic, chic look or pick something bright and cheerful that will add a pop of colour to a winter outfit.
Achievable even at the last minute, yet substantial enough to make quite the impression. The Bide Shawl by Helen Stewart is a brilliant choice when it comes to quick gifts you can knit for knit worthy loved ones. There are two sizes to choose from and and the pattern is easily adaptable depending on how much time you have to knit your gift.
Purchase three hanks of Tundra in the Red Arctic colour way to knit the medium shawl as pictured or choose another colour way from the the full range of 20 shades.
The Moen Cowl by Rachel C. Brown is knit using just two hanks of Tundra so it should work up quickly over a few evenings. When knitted as a close fitting neck warmer, Moen is incredibly cosy and light. The cables add something special your friends are sure to marvel at when unwrapping their beautiful handmade gifts. They’ll never know how little time you spent working on this gorgeous cowl.
Bulky lace is so fun to knit. The Winter Harbour Shawl by Beatrice Perron Dahlen will grow quickly and the pattern is repetitive enough that the stitches will soon be flying off your needles. The shawl certainly has the wow factor you want a handmade gift to have.
Beatrice used four hanks of Tundra in the Northern Lights colour way. Which colour will you choose? Tundra is available in 20 shades.
