    excellent kit and helpful info for others

    I've been having a lot of fun with this kit, and at the same time I can only give it 4 stars because of the yarn. I love merino yarn, it's always a delight to work with. However the yarn supplied for this project is actually merino roving, not merino yarn. For people who aren't experienced with yarn crafts yet, roving is the wool (or other fiber) before it gets spun and twisted into a yarn that we work with. Roving is a lot weaker because the fibres haven't been given the strength that twisting provides (fun science fact, by twisting threads together to create rope, you increase the tensile strength by at least 300%. So roving is spun into yarn to make it super strong and durable). Roving is still a great product, but it means you need to twist while you work to give it some strength, then let it relax after it's been knitted together to get the perfect relaxed look. If you don't twist while you go, you're potentially going to have it pull apart while you knot. Also, because it's roving, your jumper is more likely to felt together much faster than yarn felts.

    Is roving worse than yarn? Not really, it's just a bit less durable. I would wager that roving is used here because for the total length gained it's much cheaper. Spinning roving into yarn compresses it, so you need a lot more to reach the same thickness. I don't begrudge the company if that's the case, I would have just appreciated a note somewhere on the kit listing that the chunky merino is roving, not yarn. It's a…

    Favourite knit so far!

    I’ve knitted a few pieces now but this was my first attempt at a jumper! The instructions were super helpful and easy to follow - even when I mixed up the colour pattern a little bit from the original. It’s a work in progress but very close to being finished and I can’t wait to wear this cozy knit in the colder months!

    I loved knitting this beautiful chunky jumper. The instructions were easy to follow and it was super quick to knit. I also love the vibrant colours. I'm really looking forward to wearing it when the weather gets cooler.

    This was second Alice kit I bought because after I made mine my daughter wanted one too! I had to adjust the pattern a bit to fit but it worked and now we are matching! Could not love our matching knits more 😍

    This colour combo makes me think of neopolitan ice cream, and who doesn’t love that! 😜 Total knitting newbie, I made so many mistakes! Some I fixed, some are just part of my knit and I LOVE it - so much fun to make and instructions were super clear. It’s such a warm and cosy piece, already planning my next one

    As a very experienced knitter, I knitted this for my daughter in law who loved it. I think some basics are wrong. For example I can't possibly get the tension you displayed because 1cm tension is not possible on 1.5cm needles. And there's no real explanation of "tension"- you just show a graph....I can make sense of what you're trying to explain but it doesn't work in reality. Three different sizes take different amounts of wool- nowhere near enough pink left to do a size 16. The wool is beautiful but very expensive. The needles and sewing needle were good quality. She loves it and it's beautiful which is the most important thing.
