Caught By The Sea Shawl Kit Preview

Just recently, I was asked by Veronika Cromwell of The Blue Star Crochet Company whether I'd like another a shawl for my shawlf (my shawl-shelf).

If you're a regular reader, then you'll know that my shawlf is pretty jam-packed with all the shawls, cowls, wraps and various neck-attire you could possibly imagine because I just love to make them and so obviously, I couldn't say no.

Veronika is the designer behind The Blue Star Crochet Company and a quick peek at her Etsy shop reveals a plethora of beautiful patterns for accessories and garments. Now, the next big thing Veronika is launching is not just a pattern for her gorgeous Caught By The Sea Shawl, but the whole kit - everything you need to make it and a a few little extras, too.

Have eaten biscuit and drunk tea already, obvs

Here's what the kit contains:

  • 1 x 100g hand-dyed skein of 100% Falkland Merino British wool, with two colour ways to choose from, both dyed by Sheena Proudlock of The Mermaid's Purse and exclusive to this kit.

I chose the colour 'Dolphin Shore' 

  • Pattern leaflet, with code for Ravelry download, too (also exclusive to the kit and which also contains further support codes and charts)
  • 5mm crochet hook
Gah, I'm a sucker for a cute stitch-marker

  • 2 x stitch markers
  • Sweet treat and tea
  • further discount codes for 15% off Blue Star Crochet Company patterns and The Mermaid's Purse Yarns
The kit is available to pre-order from the 1st April 2018 (and all for just £21.99, plus postage).
AND I have a discount code for you - just use the code ANNABOO1418 to receive 10% when you order your kit!

This yarn is DREAMY soft and gorgeous

And so I'd like to say a big well done to Veronika - I think the kit is really superb and great quality and the pattern looks just lovely- it would make the perfect present for someone else, or special gift to yourself.

I cannot wait to make a start on mine - that yarn is HEAVENLY.

Wishing you all Happy Easter weekend,
