Back in August, I shared my excitement about one of my yarns being featured in a pattern on the front of Inside Crochet issue 69. Now I’m delighted to say that the pattern is available to prchase individually from the designer, Valerie . In fact, if you purchase the pattern through this Ravelry link, you will also receive a code that will give you 10% off not just Mobberley DK, but any DK yarn in the shop.
I’m currently working my version up in Mobberley DK “Strawberry Blush”. I love how the colour change happens on the corner!
If you enjoy crochet I would urge you to pop over to Valerie’s website, Agrarian Artisan. It’s full of gorgeous pictures, top tips and fun CALs. It’s a must!
My mind is turning towards next year and product development and I’d really appreciate some feedback if you have the time.
I’m currently developing some weaving kits based on 120-200g yarn (either a skinny version of Stanley, my Falkland merino, at 400m per 100g or a new merino/silk 4ply, again 400m), with either co-ordinated mini skein warps or a hand painted painted warp plus weft and instructions.
I’m also working with a crochet designer to develop some crochet scarf/stole kits. One of these would be a single skein kit, the rest would be based on mini-skeins, with one having 4 colours and others having more (potentially up to 15-20). I envisage these being Mobberley, merino or merino/silk, and would come with the yarn (somewhere between 100-300g based on early estimates) and a printed pattern.
I have researched prices of kits currently on the market (mainly knitting), but I’m interested to know how much people have paid/would pay for a kit at a show.
Thanks for your time, much appreciated. All responses will be entered into a wee draw to say thanks!
