So I am a little late getting this post written and up on the blog as I have just dispatched and launched the May box…whoops!
The April box included a brand new to us yarn brand. West Yorkshire Spinners. I chose the Bo Peep 4 ply in this grogeous minty green colour. This yarn does contain 52% Falkland Wool which creates a luxurious soft yarn which is perfect for babies and little ones. Because it contains wool please remember not to tumble dry it but you can wash it on a delicate cycle up to 40°. Now I know that something that can’t be tumble dried isn’t perfect for babies but I believe that every little one needs to have a supersoft wool cardigan.
The crochet pattern this month is from an independent designer, Lisa Van Klaveren. I actually purchased this pattern a while ago from her to use in the boxes but have only now come across the perfect yarn for it! She has a beautiful range of patterns available over on her Etsy shop.
The pattern for the knitting box was a classic Patons pattern which featured a cross over style cardigan. This was a great pattern to send, as not only did it go upto a size 2-3 years (which is always a bonus when the box is for little ones upto 12 months) but the pattern was written for either 3ply, 4ply or double knit yarn which meant they can use the pattern for a wide range of yarns they already may have in their stash!
There were also 2 lovely treats this month! As well as a set of handmade by me stitch markers you also have a fun little planner clip which has been made by the wonderful lady over at The Crafty Beach Hut. Her work is gorgeous and so cute. She has a facebook page and a website too so you can pop over and see what else she has available.
So there we have the April 2020 crochet box! Make sure you keep an eye out for our next blog post which will talk a little bit more about our brand new box and also the launch of the Christmas Limited Edition Boxes!
