I am sure you have heard of the various kinds of monthly subscription boxes, but have you heard of this delightful crochet subscription, Happy Yarn Mail ? My March project came this week and I was excited to open it up see what surprises await. Inside the March box is materials and instruction to make this pretty crochet beret, the Parisienne Beret, complete with an adorable cross-stitch heart. I am more of a slouchy girl myself, but this beret turned out darn cute.
What is Happy Yarn Mail ?
It’s a lovely, crochet subscription that comes monthly in the mail! Inside the cute sprinkled bag you will find a simple and easy-to-read pattern, all the yarn needed to compete the project, and some other bonus goodies.
How adorable is that button?
Plus, the pattern comes with a video. You can be sure that any pattern that comes in Happy Yarn Mail with be something you can complete. Simply follow the URL on the back of the pattern booklet and enter the password provided.
March’s project came with this squishy Touch of Alpaca by Lion Brand Yarns. I haven’t tried this yarn before getting my Happy Yarn Mail. Quite frankly, I have never made a crochet beret before either. This box is fun because it provides an opportunity to try something new, something you may not choose for yourself but something you will end up loving!
Turned out quite cute, don’t you think?
You can see that my hand-sewing skills are quite lacking. My mom is an avid cross-stitcher, and the one thing I remember learning from her is to work the top crosses of each stitch all the same way. At least I’ve got that going for me!
Okay, so if you are reading to start your monthly crochet subscription, hippity-hoppity over to Happy Yarn Mail and snag up your April box, because they sell out FAST! Once, they’re gone, they’re gone.
Get ready to start looking forward to the mail :)
