Did you know that we have a monthly crochet subscription box? With the love of crochet and everything about it we started a crochet subscription box back in October 2018. I have been designing crochet patterns since 2012 and love coming up with new designs and having a theme to create those designs really inspires me. After my husband started making crochet hooks last year after my crochet injury, I became inspired to crochet even more! Then I started hand dyeing yarn and designing based on the colorway and weight of the yarn, that is when the Leither Collection Subscription Box was born!

Let’s dive into the September 2019 box! Last month we went with our galaxy theme, which was full of shades of purple with little pops of pink and orange. This month our theme is coral, with our main color being a coral pink with little pops of gold and cream! I wanted this box to be the last goodbye to summer, it’s time to start thinking of fall but I didn’t want to end the summer without making a summer themed box. When I created the colorway for the yarn, I wanted the crochet hooks to compliment the yarn, not look exactly like the yarn. The Funfetti hook pulls in gorgeous shades of grey and cream and the natural hook was a gorgeous shade of gold to match the gold in the yarn. Of course there is the stitch marker that’s says beach trip. Because this yarn is dyed completely different than our other yarn bases (because it’s 100% pima cotton), we will only have a limited amount of kits available.
This month we introduced a new fiber content, it is 100% pima cotton and it is so squishy and amazing to work with! The primary color is an coral pink/orange shade and it is really beautiful in person, these photos don’t do it justice! Then I did leave spots of white and added just a little bit of gold but it isn’t overpowering and I brought the stitch marker to life in the yarn! Again the yarn is 100% pima cotton and it is 437 yards and 100 grams.
Beanies that I love!!

Lets talk about these gorgeous crochet hooks! The design is the same for both the Natural (purpleheart) and Funfetti (purple and grey) but these two different woods make them both look unique in their own way! Which one did you receive?
Last month our stitch marker was an adorable galaxy and this month it is a coral seashell, starfish and pearl stitch marker.
Now lets dive into the crochet patterns, the first one that I designed was the Coral Market Bag, this market bag is simple and quick to work up but it has gorgeous details around the top and once I was done making the Coral Market Bag, I took my stitch marker and clipped it onto the bag and it gave it a beautiful accent.
The second pattern that I designed is the Coral Market Towel, because the yarn this month is 100% cotton, I had to make something for the kitchen and I have been wanting to design a towel and I am really happy how this turned out!
I hope that you are loving having two different crochet patterns to choose from each month!
We love putting together the boxes every month, it is a lot of fun to put together every piece that goes into the box. We brainstorm what colors we want the yarn to be and if the crochet hooks will completely coordinate or complement the yarn. Once I have the colors for the yarn chosen, then I decide what I am going to make, I let the colors of the yarn tell me what it wants to be! We have also loved finding coordinating stitch markers to complete the set.
