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. WARNING: they are addictive!
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.
We recently tripled the number of different kits we now carry. In addition to knits for crocheting Benedict the Elephant, Emma the Bunny and Alice the Zebra, we have added kits for another dozen of Kerry’s adorable creations, including Kerry the Chameleon, Stanley the Stegosaurus, Alice the Zebra and Fiona the Panda.
But the most impressive new addition is Ron the Horseshoe Crab
When we caught up with Kerry earlier this year at Vogue Knitting, she asked if there was any animal she would like for us to create for A Great Yarn. It was an easy call, since Chatham is pretty much the horseshoe crab capital of the world. And true to her word, Kerry did her research and six months later she sent Ron.
Stop by the shop and see Ron and all his friends.
