To Knit or To Crochet: The December Dream Club Kit

"To Knit or to Crochet . . ."
William Shakespeare's Hamlet famously asks "To knit or to crochet, that is the question . . . "  Ok, so maybe that's not exactly what he said, but it is a question I've often asked myself:  Do I want to start a knitting project next, or should I start a crochet project? 

Well, you don't have to decide with Dream in Color's Dream Club exclusive December yarn and pattern.  This month's kit is a snugly cowl by Melissa Leapman with two patterns: "Alexandra" is the knit version and "Andrea" is the crochet version.  Both create a perfect accessory for those snowy days to come!  Knit (or crochet) one for yourself, give one as a gift this holiday season, or give the kit to your favorite knitter or crocheter!

Choose the Alexandra Cowl (knit) or Andrea Cowl (crochet)
Here's the best part.  The Dream Club kit colors are exclusively dyed for the Dream Club kits - and when they're gone, they're gone!  December's yarn is Dream in Color's Classy, a 75% superwash merino wool with 25% nylon to add durability.

And the color?  Oh, the color!  December's vibrant color is a fun mix of greens, aquas, blues, purples and yellows.  Yummy!

Each kit includes:
  • Electronic download of the Alexandra Cowl pattern (the knit version)
  • Electronic download of Andrea Cowl pattern (the crochet version)
  • One over-sized skein of Dream in Color's exclusive December color in Classy yarn, which is enough to complete the pattern.

You'll also need a US 9/5.50 mm and US 10/6.00 mm 20" circular knitting needle or a US J/10 (6.00 mm) crochet hook, or the size to obtain gauge.  Needles and hooks are not included in the kit.

(Did you miss the November Dream Club kit?  There are still a few kits remaining - get 'em before they're gone!)

Happy Knitting . . . . Amy
