I am so excited to share this kit review with you! For a while now I have been wanting to try a kit from We Are Knitters. Needless to say, I was over the moon when they offered to send me their Botos Tee to review! I love the simplicity of this top. It is so stylish and functional and I absolutely love the fringe! I mean, who doesn’t love fringe? I love an effortless look, and I feel We Are Knitters nailed it with their Botos Tee!
A special thanks to We Are Knitters for providing the kit for this review!
WE ARE KNITTERS: WHO ARE THEY?
We Are Knitters is a global and fashion brand that creates knitting, crochet, petit point, and arm knitting kits. They also provide some of the softest and most luxurious yarn that you could ever work with! Their knitting needles and crochet hooks are handmade from 100% beechwood. All We Are Knitter’s wool and cotton is 100% natural and their bags are recyclable and reusable! I love that they design their kits with beginner knitters and crocheters in mind! They also have a blog that offers video tutorials, tips, techniques and patterns.
THE BOTOS TEE KIT: WHAT’S INSIDE?
I love that this kit provides everything that you need to complete your pattern…from start to finish! We Are Knitters really thought of everything!
What the kit includes:
- 4 skeins of Pima Cotton
- 5mm Crochet Hook (optional)
- The pattern which includes instructions for 4 sizes (S, M, L, XL)
- Pack of sewing needles
- Embroidered label
- We Are Knitter’s packaging
They also provided some awesome stickers as well!
I love the color selection for this kit. With 30 color options, you are bound to find a color you love! Given that my favorite color is Purple, I had to choose the Mauve color. When buying the kit, you have the option to not include the given crochet hook. So if you are looking so save some money, you can opt to not include it in your kit. I will say, I enjoyed using the hook! It is very high quality and I love how light it felt in my hand.
THE BOTOS TEE PATTERN
The pattern for this kit was super simple. I would highly recommend this kit to beginner crocheters. We Are Knitters suggests crocheting a gauge swatch before starting the pattern. I am really glad I did because my gauge was way off. Keep in mind though I tighten my stitches when crocheting. The soft and breathable pima cotton makes this a perfect wearable for hot weather! The fist thing I noticed about the yarn is that it has such a gorgeous drape! A lot of cotton yarns can be stiff. Not this yarn! It was a dream to work with. It is so silky and has a beautiful subtle sheen. The fringe was so easy to attach. I just love how it looks!
Overall, this kit was just a dream to work with! I really felt that We Are Knitters put a lot of thought into this kit. If you are looking for the perfect gift for someone who crochets, this is it. It is such a simple, yet gorgeous pattern.
I know the Botos Tee will be a staple in my spring and summer wardrobe! I’m already thinking about making it in other colors!
