Hudson’s Bay Blanket/Throw Kit

Hudson’s Bay Blanket/Throw Kit

Now is the time for a bit of real Canadiana: a classic Hudson's Bay baby blanket or throw for chilly evenings. The original blankets were rough and scratchy, but this new blanket is so soft and comfy, knit with a warm, but easy-care, acrylic-merino blend.  The pattern is easy to knit, so everyone can make their own Hudson's Bay blanket before the cold winds start to blow.  

The Hudson's Bay Blanket/Throw kit includes nine 100g skeins of Cascade Pacific yarn (in all the right colours), a colour picture of the finished project, and instructions for downloading an electronic copy of the pattern from Ravelry.  To top that off, DY will add a printed copy of the pattern, as our gift to you!

The cost for the kit (including the free printed pattern) is just $90. We will have a limited number of the kits available in the shop starting next Wednesday, Oct. 11. Make sure you get yours by purchasing the kit (including the free printed pattern) here, then you can pick it up in the shop at your leisure!  No worries or stress. Can't make it into the shop?  Add flat-rate shipping ($15) to the cart and we will ship the kit within Canada by Canada Post.

$15 flat-rate shipping:
