Simple Chic Knits


Our first book, Simple Chic Knits is a compendium of 35 designs using our favourite yarns.  All of the patterns are simple (some more so than others!) and range from small accessories to jumpers, throws and toys.

We spent the best part of a year creating what we hope is a collection of designs that can be staples for any knitter; simple projects that are great for gifts and will stand the test of time.

All of the projects use great yarns, but the book includes the tension information that you would find on the ball band so you can easily substitute another yarn if the one mentioned is difficult to get hold of or not right for you.

Simple Chic Knits is published by CICO Books (£12.99)

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!
