This was a fun box to kick off the cooler weather and spooky nights ahead. Not only was this the first month we started including a crochet pattern in each box along with a knitting pattern, but this box was just packed full of goodies! All of our subscribers received two skeins of rich hand-dyed yarn, a bonus knitting pattern (for a total of three patterns to choose from!), wooden buttons, and a custom-made needle and crochet hook gauge we designed to look like a sugar skull! All in all, the total value was $49.95!

The Yarn

October’s featured yarn is Griffin, a soft and squishy 100% superwash merino yarn hand-dyed by Raventwist. Our subscribers each received two skeins in rich fall-inspired colors: enough yarn to knit both fingerless mitten patterns included in the box, or to crochet the cowl. Retail value: $20.00
