Playdate Kit

      Tincanknits Playdate is a cute grandpa-style cardigan that makes for an easy lightweight layer to keep your favorite small person cozy and includes two functional pockets, perfect for bringing along a wee stuffed friend! Playdate is knit seamlessly, from the bottom-up in soft, washable Berroco Vintage Sock (40% superwash wool, 52% extra-fine acrylic, 8% nylon) which has terrific colors and wearability.

      The Playdate kit is available in six sizes that range from newborn to 4-6 years and is designed to fit with 1 inch of positive ease. The sizes listed below correspond to the actual measurement of the finished garment, so to achieve the recommended fit, please choose a size that is 1 inch larger than the child’s chest measurement.
      • Size 1 (0-3 months): 17” chest circumference
      • Size 2 (3-6 months): 18” chest circumference
      • Size 3 (6-12 months): 19” chest circumference
      • Size 4 (1-2 years): 21” chest circumference
      • Size 5 (2-4 years): 24” chest circumference
      • Size 6 (4-6 years): 26” chest circumference
      Each kit includes sufficient yarn for the size specified in the color of your choice, along with the pattern. We will purchase a copy of Playdate for you via Ravelry, so you will automatically receive both a printed copy and an emailed PDF. If you would also like to have this pattern in your Ravelry library, please note your Ravelry ID (not your password!) in the "Notes" field in your cart!

      Please note that this kit does not include needles or buttons (or hand knitted toys!) You will need US3 and US4 24” or longer circular needles and US3 and US4 DPNs (or size needed to achieve gauge). If you don't already have the appropriate needles at home, you can shop Spun's selection of circular needles here and DPNs here. You will also need five 14-15 mm buttons.

      If you'd like to make your kit a gift (for yourself or someone else), or if you just wish to keep your new project tidy and organized, add the Spun Rope Handle Bag with Pin to your order and we will package your purchase accordingly!
