We Are Knitters Crochet Tropea Cardigan

crochet kitI was thrilled when We Are Knitters asked me to try out their Tropea Cardigan crochet kit. Firstly, it’s great to see that WAK are catering for crocheters as well as knitters with a beautiful array of patterns, kits and yarn. I haven’t used their yarn before, so I was interested to see what the quality was like. The Pima Cotton was like nothing I’ve ever used before! It was so soft and silky with a beautiful drape, making it perfect for garments. This is a seriously beautiful yarn! A+++++crochet kit crochet kit

This kit was rated intermediate, but the pattern itself is quite simple. I think the intermediate rating applies, because of the large number of granny squares required to make the cardigan – 174 for a medium size like me! But it was well worth it!!crochet kit Honestly, i was a little intimidated by the large number of squares at first, but I was surprised at how quickly the little piles began to grow. I tend to get bored quickly, so if I can get through making all of these squares then YOU can too! And as a bonus they provided lots of great photo opportunities. 😉 If you’re into that sort of thing…..which i am! 🙂crochet kit crochet kit

Part of the reason this project was so enjoyable to work on was because of the colour and quality of the yarn. In fact, the hardest part of making this cardigan was choosing the colour scheme. WAK have such a large range of colours and all kits are completely customisable. The kits also come with everything you need – yarn, pattern, needles, hooks and even a little WAK tag to complete your project.crochet kit

I don’t make a lot of garments as i tend to be more of a cushion or blanket kind of crocheter, but this kit has given me a whole new outlook. I’ve even got my eye on a couple more WAK projects!!crochet kit
