Winter Colour Accessory Bundle
The St Agnes Eve beret and scarf teamed with a Heart bag make the perfect gift for a knitter who wants to practice a wide variety of skills, including stranded knitting in the round, an introduction to cables, and the infinite line technique.
The theme is Love, for not only does the bag display a heart, the poetic inspiration for the beret and scarf is The Eve of St. Agnes – a lengthy narrative poem written by John Keats and published in 1820. St Agnes was the patron saint of virgins and the story was based on the old superstition that a girl could see her future husband in her dreams if she performed certain ceremonies on St Agnes’ Eve, which fell on the 20th of January.
There is a choice of colours for the Heart bag: any of these colours – Wild Orchid, Limpet, Storm Petrel or Limpet, will match the winter colour scheme of the St Agnes Eve. Both kits includes a colour-printed pattern card with full instructions and all the Alice Starmore® yarn required to make the St Agnes Eve and the Heart Bag in your chosen colour.
