This month’s knit pattern was entitled Galanthus and designed by Joanna Rankin ($4.99). Doesn’t the model have a nice smile?
It is an intermediate level pattern with graphs to help you understand the cables.
The crochet pattern was entitled Trinity Cabled Hat by Julie Desjardins ($6).
The pictures in the pattern were great. They are always helpful when you are trying to get a feel for the project.
The pattern was very clearly written and easy to follow.
This pom-pom was in the box. ($2.99) It has a small piece of elastic sticking out of one side to hook it to the hat with. But, I couldn’t do it. It is undeniably soft and oh so fluffy! But, I seriously jumped when I first opened the box. It looked like a critter curled up in there!
The bonus gift was this fabulous Lavish Bath Company Maple Pumpkin Custard Bath Bomb ($5.99). The scent is delightful and it is huge!
And, the fiber in this month’s box is Trinity Worsted from Sweet Georgia ($36.00). “It is a soft and durable blend of super-wash merino, cashmere, and silk. This yarn has an unbeatable combination of softness, shine, and wearability. You’ll find one of 11 rich hand-dyed colors in your box.”
The color that we received was an absolutely gorgeous teal blue-green color that they entitled Salt Air.
The pattern and the yarn combined perfectly to create this cute hat. By daughter gave it two thumbs up!
I love how the cables turned out
This month’s Yarn Crush box was fabulous. I love the fiber that they chose and the color was beautiful. It is great that they include a pattern for knitters and crocheters. I am always excited to open this box and discover what lovely yarn and pattern awaits!
