Herringbone Bed Runner Kit


This price is based on the smallest blanket which uses 7 skeins, please drop us an email on if you want to make a large size. Any colour preferences should be mentioned in the order comments' box. 

Herringbone is slow to knit, but easy.  Once you've relaxed into it you'll really enjoy it.  We have a video showing you how to do it.  I'd really recommend having a go, it's very satisfying!

The requirements are:

2 (2) skeins each of the border colours (rhubarb crumble and fondant fancy)

1 (2) skeins of the other colours pavlova, pistachio icecream and peppermint cream.

Finished measurements:
Small: 128 x 59cm Medium: 160 x 59cm Large: 171 x 59cm

You will also need 20mm circular knitting needles (I'd recommend at least 80cm long)

Plump is a pretty standard superchunky (super bulky) weight and can be substituted as such.

Ballband Tension (gauge):

Using 10mm needles over stocking stitch: 10 sts to every 10cm

We have used it on many different needle sizes from 8mm to 20mm according to the structure and drape of fabric we want to produce. The larger the needle, the looser the fabric will be.

Plump Superchunky and Plump DK are made from the highest quality superfine merino and baby alpaca.  These really are special and luxurious fibres and should be treated carefully!  Having said that both yarns are suitable for delicate hand washing.  Use a specialist detergent and do not agitate or twist the fibres to retain the gorgeous softness and shape of your garment.

Because of the roving nature of our yarns (they are single ply, rather than tightly twisted), some shedding may occur.  The best way to deal with this is spray your finished garment with water and leave to dry flat, naturally before the first wearing.  This sets the fibres and should stop any problems.  If you want any further advice just drop us a line at

Using your yarn
All our yarn comes in skeins.  Before using you need to wind the skein into a ball or you will get into an awful tangled mess!  If you are not sure how to do this you can watch our video here!
