If you love knitting and sewing, an ak knitted

If you love knitting and sewing, an ak knitted
doll kit will charge your imagination and bring
together all your creative skills
This project involves knitting your own ak doll, dressing her in a modern shift and boots, then
sewing and knitting versatile basics and knock-out hand knits that come together in delightful outfits
through the use of colour and accessories.
It’s a big concept – the complete wardrobe is extensive – but one designed to be accessed in a
number of practical ways.
For example, you have the option of purchasing a starter kit which can be built upon as time
permits. Make a set of fabric clothes or another outfit for a special occasion using ak Miro dk wool,
fabric packs and sewing and knitting patterns all which are available separately. Alternately, begin
with a starter kit but add wool and patterns to make several other outfits. Or, let us put together a
customised kit containing all the wool, fabric, patterns and trims to make the complete wardrobe.
The choice is yours.
Getting started is easy…
Select your favourite
colourway from the
five options.
Choose between a
standard starter kit
and a customised kit.
Decide how you’d like you
kit to be packaged – in an
ak workbox or calico tote.
