Who wants to Dualola? I do! You do!  November Lola’s Choice Kit is all about Embellishing your knits! You know Lola - she's always got a trick or two up her sleeve. And this pattern set is no different.

Kits for Dualola were the November ’23 shipment for Lola’s Choice (Laura’s super fun small knitted kit club). Kits are SOLD OUT so if you don't want to miss out on future kits you should SIGN UP NOW!

The knitting in this pattern is easy-breezy, so you can hurry up and get to the fun stuff: beaded embroidery. With straightforward instructions, info-packed videos, and quick-to-knit pieces, you'll be jazzing up your knits in no time. And the yarn, I just know that some of you are going to fall in LOVE with Loch Lomond. It’s the perfectly woolly, tweedy, and sturdy (while still being soft), organic, DK-weight yarn.

The headband's got a twist that’ll complement your eyes with an integrated braided edge that will warm your ears. And the mitts practically knit themselves - with a thumb that's a total afterthought (but in the best way possible).

Now, for the two ways you can embroider your beads: The first option is all about free-form fun on your knits — just eyeball it and go. The second involves a washaway stabilizer (basically, you trace and stick it onto your knit before you go wild with the embellishment). I'm hoping all you creative souls out there bring your A-game and make these knits your own! I can’t wait to see what you do!
