Shopping: Wool and the Gang Knits

Paris-based design collective Wool and the Gang makes hand-knit clothing and accessories that are more street than granny—fingerless gloves and cropped vests—but that still bring focus back to the basics of handwork and craft. The design group recently opened their first store in New York's SoHo neighborhood, where they sell wooden needles, Peruvian yarn, and simple knitting patterns. This scarf kit, available in multiple colors, is the perfect holiday gift for aspiring artisans.
