TOFT Crochet Kits – A Great Yarn has partnered with TOFT UK, which provides crochet kits based on the number one best-selling crochet book, “Edward’s Menagerie,” by Kerry Lord. TOFT’s Edward’s Menagerie Collection is unbelievably adorable. These amigurumi animal designs are crocheted using TOFT’s DK yarn and make perfect gifts for children and adults alike.
Each kit contains 100% British wool yarn, along with everything you need to complete your project — a printed postcard pattern, stuffing for the finished animal, a TOFT branded 3mm crochet hook, a wool needle for sewing up and a short black thread to sew on the eyes. Most of the animals in the collection measure approximately 7″ tall when seated.
Chatham Lighthouse Christmas Stocking Kit — We asked our Senior Knitting Consultant Jean Williams to create a Chatham Lighthouse Christmas Stocking for A Great Yarn, and she more than exceeded our expectations. To the point where she even included the Christmas wreath that adorns the lighthouse throughout the holiday season. Plus she added red, white and green rings on the toe that make the stocking even more festive.
We incorporated “C-H-A-T-H-A-M” into the top of our stocking, but the pattern can be easily adjusted to include anyone’s name that you wish. The kits include everything you need to knit the stocking except for knitting needles.
Block Island and Gansey Hat Kits – The Seaman’s Church Institute and North Light Fibers have partnered with noted pattern designer Deborah Newton to produce the Block Island gansey hat kit, which has been a stable of A Great Yarn for several years. A Great Yarn,
Feza Gradient Baby Blanket Kit – Each kit comes with four pre-caked, 100g skeins of Feza Hand Dyed Baby Yarn, plus the Baby Gradient Blanket Pattern written by Nancy Rieck. The kits create a tonal range from white to a solid color. Feza Baby Yarn is incredibly soft and supple with a light hand, perfect to wear right next to even the most sensitive of skin on the warmest of days. The clever mix of viscose and cotton makes this machine washable yarn a year-round favorite to knit or crochet.
Meryl Streep Butterfly Cowl Kits – We are currently featuring four different Butterfly Cowl Kits. We are calling the cowls our “Meryl Streep Butterfly Cowls,” because we are displaying them on images of four of Meryl’s best roles. We hope you will enjoy knitting up our “Meryl Streep ‘Kramer vs. Kramer’ Cowl,” our “Meryl Streep ‘Sophie’s Choice’ Cowl,” our “Meryl Streep ‘It’s Complicated Cowl,” and our “Meryl Streep ‘The Post’ Cowl.
Our “Double Feature Kit” contains sufficient yarn to make of two of the cowls, and also includes the Marin Melchior pattern, and our “Single Feature Kit” contains sufficient yarn to make of one of the cowls, and also includes the pattern.
Fino Mini-Skein Cowl Kits — Mini skeins continue to captivate yarn fans as a way to introduce a pop of color into a project. Each kit include five mini-skeins of Manos del Uruguay’s Fino, which combines the softness of merino wool with the luster of silk in a lightweight yarn that’s perfect for heirloom accessories or luxurious garments. The kit also includes the Fino Shadow Cowl pattern.
Aranami Shawl Kits – If ever there was a garment that was made for Chatham it’s the Aranami Shawl by Olga Burava-Kefelian. Depending on color selection, the shawl can have the look of a winter ocean with foamy raging waves on the surface, or a crystalline patch of shimmering water reflecting the summer sun. Each kit contains seven mini-skeins of Baah’s LaJolla ultra-fine merino yarn, plus Olga’s pattern. We have prepared seven different kits, with colors ranging from “Shades of Blue” to “Shade of Gray” to “Shades of Spring” to “Shades of Twilight.”
