Plow Cushion Crochet Pattern and Kit from We Are Knitters + A Giveaway!

Crochet and knitting is easy, with a little help from We Are Knitters! Check out the gorgeous Plow Cushion Crochet Pattern and Kit we made!

You guys, I love to crochet. Like, seriously love, love, love, love, love it! My current obsession is making a cup of tea after the kids go to bed, putting on a podcast, snuggling up on the couch and crocheting. I love having a pattern that is repetitive, and that after doing a round or two I know, and don’t have to keep looking at the pattern. There is just something so zen about sitting down and watching a long line of yarn turn into a gorgeous project. 

I’m definitely not a fast crocheter, I could never crochet things to sell, but it’s something that makes me very happy. My kids love watching me crochet too. Bean often comes down the stairs in the morning and goes to look at my crochet basket to see my progression from the night before. 

I keep asking my girlfriends if they know how to crochet. I’d love to find a few friends who know how to do it so that we could crochet together, gab and enjoy a glass of wine. I learned how to crochet in one week thanks to a class that I took on Craftsy. I think online classes are the way to go when learning how to crochet, because you can pause the video and replay it repeatedly until you master each stitch. 

The class I took on Craftsy is no longer available but this Crochet Basics and Beyond class from Kim Werker looks awesome. Additionally Creative Bug  has a How To Crochet class with Carla Scott, the Executive Editor of Vogue Knitting International that looks great!

I always love picking my next crochet project and personalizing it by picking my own colors of yarn. I sometimes stumble trying to figure out what kind of yarn is appropriate for different projects and how much yarn I’ll need to complete what I’m making. There’s nothing worse than running out of yarn part way through a project, and winding up with way more yarn than you need for your intended project is never a good thing either. 

Enter my new favorite website– We Are Knitters! The site is filled with gorgeous crochet and knitting projects. With a click of the button you can pick a project, and choose what colors of wool you want to make your project in, then We Are Knitters sends you everything you need to make that project! The right amount of wool for the project you are making, a crochet hook or knitting needles, instructions, a tapestry needle and even a pretty little embroidered label to put on your finished project… all in a lovely bag to keep everything in!

Read on to see what crochet kit I chose from We Are Knitters and to enter to win a crochet or knitting kit of your own from We Are Knitters! 

The Wool from We Are Knitters

The wool that comes with the kits is beautiful quality. I’ve never crocheted with anything like it before. It’s 100% natural Peruvian wool and is thick, soft and so much fun to work with. It comes in 30 colors, so whatever project you pick can be personalized just for you! Because of the thickness of the wool, projects come together super fast, which made me feel like a superstar crocheter!

I picked the Plow Cushion Crochet Kit for my project with grey, bright red and light turquoise wool.
Vintage Valentine Cat

I love the colors used in vintage valentines and have been wanting to make a project that combined red, grey and turquoise for quite awhile.

After 2 evenings of crocheting and listening to podcasts I had a beautiful pillow! I adore the way the colors look together, and am so happy with my finished project. The wool is so soft, and it’s the perfect pillow to snuggle up with!
