Complete kit to crochet three greek or roman amphorae in eco-friendly materials.
This makes a really unusual gift for a crocheter, or for the ancient history lover in your life.
The beautifully-presented kit contains everything you need to make three different amphorae in a smart, reusable box:
- 27-page fully-illustrated pattern printed on recycled paper
- organic cotton yarn
- up-cycled fabric (will vary)
- 100% natural sheep’s wool for stuffing
- sewing thread
- 3.5mm bamboo crochet hook (optional)
- blunt-tipped yarn needle
- sharp sewing needle
The pattern is worked with a 3.5mm (E-4) crochet hook (or the size needed to make a compact crochet fabric with the given yarn). I offer a lovely bamboo crochet hook by Pony if you don’t have any or are giving the kit as a gift.
The fabric is up-cycled from off-cuts donated to me, often from vintage fabrics, and will vary in pattern but will always complement the yarn. I will never buy new fabric to supplement these kits. The wool stuffing is a natural product and comes in a variety of sheepy colours. It is scoured, clean and carded, but may include the odd tiny bit of straw or leaf.
The finished amphorae measure approximately 8.5 to 12cm (3⅜ inches to 4¾ inches).
🟨 This kit requires an intermediate level of crochet skill.
