Join us for this year's Skacel Crochet Along Together with designer Amanda "Mandobug" Mannas featuring HiKoo® Caribou and Simplicity Yarn by Skacel. Beginning on Thursday, August 2nd, and running for four weeks (pattern segments released every Thursday at Noon EST), Amanda will introduce crocheters to the Cuddle Monster! Making use of HiKoo® Caribou and Simplicity, Cuddle Monster will help boost your skills in working with textural novelty yarns, customization, color changes, and seaming.
Paradise Fibers is offering these EXCLUSIVE pre-bundled kits that you can purchase with or without crochet hooks. Each kit will come with 2 balls of Caribou by HiKoo® and 3 skeins (2 in main color, 1 in contrasting color) of Simplicity by HiKoo®. We are also offering these kits paired with our Artisan crochet hooks, either in Ebony or Rosewood. Each Artisan hook kit will come with one 3.25mm (D) and one 4mm (G) hook. For this crochet along, you will also need some additional supplies that are not included in the kit:
- Locking Stitch Marker
- Tapestry Needle
- Extra scrap yarn for face details
