Once my husband bought me the ‘Knitting & Crochet’ magazine which had a free gift kit with it. It consisted of 6 yarns’ balls, 4 mm bamboo needles and 3.5 mm crochet hook. That was enough to make one of the magazine project with no extra yarns.
I read the magazine sheet after sheet and the cute owl cushion on the cover was the winner to me and my daughter. I followed the pattern just changed the colors and added two little legs.
Me and my daughter are very pleased with the result.
