Here at Leither Co. we love holiday/themed advent style boxes. With the amount of love we received on our Halloween and Christmas boxes, we received requests to design a spring box, so here it is, the 10 Days of Spring Box!
The 10 Days of Spring Box will be a mystery styled box where from April 1st to April 10th, we will open one yarn bag a day that will reveal the new colorway. We will then get together in our Leither Co. Community Facebook Group and we will work on the designed project over the 10 days. This project will be custom designed for the 10 Days of Spring Box and at the end of 10 days you will have a beautiful finished crochet project.
We have a free version (Crochet Along) as well, scroll down to read more!

We have sold out of our 10 Days of Spring Yarn Box BUT I have put together a free version of the 10 Days of Spring Crochet Along because I want everyone to be able to join in! I designed the project to be a great way to pick up your crochet hook and crochet the new design each day for about 30 minutes to an hour each day. Once you get going on the project it will get quicker and easier because the way it is designed to repeat certain segments over a few times. I have a serious obsession with crochet texture, just combining basic crochet stitches together can create the most beautiful texture.
When we hosted our 13 Days of Halloween Yarn Box in October 2019 and our Christmas Advent in December 2019, the only way to join the Crochet Along was to pre-order the box or purchase the crochet pattern and supply your own yarn. We wanted everyone to be able to join in on the fun, even if you weren’t able to grab a 10 Days of Spring Yarn Box, so we are hosting a free version as well but you will need to supply your own yarn.

For our 10 Days of Spring Crochet Along we are making the gorgeous Blossom Table Runner! This beautiful table runner is full of gorgeous texture and a lot of fun to make.
If you pre-ordred the 10 Days of Spring Box, then you will be all set with everything you need to make the Blossom Table Runner but if you didn’t you can still join in. The Blossom Table Runner is a great stash buster kind of project. Check out the supply list below and see what supplies you need to make a Blossom Table Runner!
Blossom Table Runner Supplies
- 490 yards of dk weight yarn, if you are going to want to create your own yarn box, then you will need 10 different dk colors, approximately 49 yards each.

I can’t believe we are opening the last color today for our Blossom Table Runner. Today’s color is called crushed berries, it is a gorgeous pink shade that has a blend of purple in it, giving it that crushed berries look. This final color is going to look amazing next to the magenta from yesterday and you will finally get to see the full vision of my plan for the Blossom Table Runner. Now go cake up your yarn or roll it into a ball and get add the crushed berries shade to the Blossom Table Runner!!

I recommend wet blocking or steam blocking your table runner because it will relax the yarn and stitches, make it a little longer and it will lay flat and the ends will stop curling up, see the video below on how to block the Blossom Table Runner.
