WE ARE KNITTERS Poinsettia blanket review

Hey there fellow crochet lovers, A little while ago the awesome We are Knitters contacted myself to work on a few collaborations with them (so exciting). One of the collaborations was to choose one of their amazing crochet kits, make it and write a review. Choosing the Poinsettia blanket (poinsettias are not just for Christmas especially in pink) if you follow me on instagram you will all know how much I love a granny square, so how great would a beautiful granny blanket look, using WAK fabulous wool.

When I first received the kit in the post, my first impressions was that it felt extremely special, it came in a great big brown paper bag, great for storing your project in, the kit includes absolutely everything you need, all the yummy wool, 15 mm wooden crochet hook, tapestry needle, easy pattern, and a special We are knitters woven tag.

Wow what can I say about the wool, its 100% Peruvian wool that comes in 200g balls the softest wool ever, I want to bathe in it and stoke it over my body haha. Having a great variety of colours to choose from, I choose natural with bubble gum pink, the pink really made the squares pop and  very  bright, Which is what I wanted.

I loved using this chunky wool its the great stuff, i didn't have any trouble with it at all, it did not pull apart or separate on me. I really liked the crochet hook that came with the kit, was really great to hold and crochet with.  The wool is so chunky the project whipped up super fast, I could crochet a 2 round granny square in 10 minute and I made 80 of them, so do your maths. My favourite was the texture just gorgeous.

The pattern that came with the kit is a hard copy, simply written, easy to understand with graphic illustrations which I like. Anything you don't understand they have  lots of helpful tutorials on there page.

 

I had so much fun making each and every square for this gorgeous project. it's also been highly addictive to photograph and play with. I felt a little sad when i completed the blanket because it's been a pleasure to make and use this most beautiful squishy wool ever. I highly recommend you go buy yourself one or put it on your birthday wish list. These WAK kits they are super special the Dior of wool. Their slogan "all the happiness in a kit" is completeply true. I hope you all love my blanket has much has I do, I'm now looking forward to all the cold evenings when I can wrap myself up in this beauty.
