Who are 'We Are Knitters'?
We Are Knitters creates yarn and kits with sustainability in mind. Their wool and cotton yarns are 100% natural, needles and hooks are made out of beechwood and their bags are 100% recycled and reusable! They sell all the yummy, luxury wool that you have always wanted to get your hands on including Peruvian, alpaca, and merino. They also have the most beautiful looking Pima Cotton that would be perfect for your spring and summer projects!
Are they really just for knitters? Absolutely not! The beautiful kit they sent me is 100% crochet. They have kits for knitting, crocheting, petite point and arm knitting. Be sure to check them all out because they are all truly trendy and incredible.
What's inside a kit?
Speaking of their kits...what do they come with? They come with EVERYTHING you will need to make the project. I love that it is truly a complete kit and you won't have to go searching for anything else to make your lovely project. It would also be an amazing gift for another crocheter/knitter in your life!
When you first get your kit you will open this adorable bag to find all the amazing-ness inside! The Pop Scarf kit comes with 5 balls of of 100% petite Peruvian wool. One of the best parts about these kits is the color selection! When you are ordering, you can select any color combination that you like. And this wool is to die for! If you think of wool as scratchy - think again! This yarn is like little clouds of squishiness that you just can't stop touching. Each ball comes beautifully packaged and in pristine condition. Honestly it was hard for me to open them and start working with them because they were so pretty!
The kit also includes the pattern to make this chic scarf, along with the hook, needles and embroidered label that will give your finished project a really professional look. Another feature that I love about these kits when you order, is that you have the option to not purchase the hook or needles that come with it. Now...I wouldn't recommend it because who doesn't want a beautiful beechwood hook to add to their collection? But if you are looking to try these kits and want to save a bit of money - it is certainly an option!
My Pop Scarf
I didn't waste any time digging in to my We Are Knitters Pop Scarf Kit - I jumped in right away! If you are familiar with my patterns then you know I am a sucker for triangle scarves and I am so excited to add this one to my collection! It is so warm, cuddly, and the bobble stitches give it incredible texture and "pop". It is a very generous size when it is finished and, even though spring is coming, you won't want to stop snuggling it. IF you have incredible will power, you could even save this scarf as part of your holiday gifting stash for someone special (OR maybe it's just the perfect present for you).
I loved working with this kit for so many reasons:
1. It glided over the hook so nicely. There were no tangles, no knots and it rolled off the ball easily. I didn't even use a yarn bowl! I just kept it in the We Are Knitters bag that the kit came in and it was easy to use that way.
2. I could take out stitches with ZERO problem. Let's be honest, we all make mistakes, and sometimes that means you have to tear out a few stitches. Initially I was concerned that it would be complicated with this 100% wool because it is a little bit fuzzy. In the past when I have worked with different brands of this same type of yarn, the stitches somehow knot themselves together with the fuzz and they are difficult to pull out. NOT THIS YARN. I didn't run into a single snag or tangle!
3. The crochet hook was really comfortable to work with, and I loved that it came right in the kit. In the time I've been designing, I have found that crocheters don't always have a 7mm crochet hook at their disposal, but you won't need to worry about that with the We Are Knitters kits!
4. The colors they sent me are truly beautiful in person, and I love that the kits give you the option of any color combination that you want. My yarn was all the same dye lot and transitioning between different balls of the green yarn was seamless.
