Finally- Fleur de Lis– an elegant cozy for your French press coffee or tea. We’re suggesting Berroco Bento a machine-washable silk blend but you could use Vintage or Ultra Wool instead.

  1. Why do you ignore crochet? We buy yarn too! Your company is totally knitcentric. I rarely even think of looking at or for Berroco yarn because I never see anything from your company about crochet. The only blog posts are about book giveaways and one that included the word crochet about ease. All examples are knits.

    1. Hi Sian, Sorry you’re not finding what you’re looking for on our blog. If you search for “crochet” on our blog, you get 25 pages of results, so we do have crochet content. We’ve found that our audience generally skews towards knitting instead of crochet—our crochet posts don’t get seen as much even though we promote them just as much as we do the knitting content, and our crochet patterns don’t sell as well as our knitting patterns, so try as we might we’re just not hitting the buttons that crocheters are looking for. We’ll continue to try—if there’s anything in particular you’d like to see, please feel free to share.

  2. Please keep the knitting ideas coming! Other sites use a majority of crochet patterns. I rarely crochet, too hard on my arthritic hands, but circular needles are magic, much easier on the hands! 😉

  3. I understand Sian Salsbury’s feelings. But this is one of the few yarn sites that favors Knit over Crochet. I have written the same message on some of the other sites requesting more knit patterns and techniques. I guess I am saying having this site showcase knits over crochet seems fair in view of so many other places showcasing crochet. I am sorry Sian not to be more sympathetic.
