Sunshine Knitting Kit - Rico Merino Chunky yarn

You can knit your very own chunky sunshine to brighten up your day, or someone else's. This will make a smaller sunshine than the one pictured, but I think this size might be even cuter than the original design! 

This kit now has an optional printed paper pattern, if you'd like one included in your kit. If not, you can view the knitting pattern on our blog for free here. You can also choose whether you'd like your kit to include knitting needles or not.
