My Boshi ~ Distributed by DMC ~ Product Review

Crochet Guide, yarn, hook & patterns.

This is a fantastic idea and is bringing crochet to a whole new generation.
Now crocheting has become trendy and brought it to the masses.

Myboshi was founded by Felix Rohland and Thomas Jaenisch 
who are outdoor sports and ski fanatics, 
being ski tutors in the winter they know from experience what a great beanie hat is; 
it is more than just a fashion accessory, 
it is also functional and comfortable.

« Boshi » means beanie in Japanease. With Myboshi, everyone can create its own beanie: 
according to his own style, by choosing from a range of shapes, patterns, 
colours with millions of possible combinations!

The mix of Merino wool and acrylic is the perfect combination for beanies: soft, warm and strong. 
It’s ideal for outdoor activities. 
Anyone can create their own beanie with myboshi, 
personalise your own style with myboshi’s vast range of colours, 
patterns and shapes – you can make endless possible combinations!

With the Crochet Guide you get everything you need to complete your
very own Boshi.
You receive clear guidelines on how to crochet
including all the stitches you'll need. 
You get 3 patterns:
The Gifu Hat which is casual and warm slouchy

The Suita urban style hat (the one I choose).

and the Okinawa ear warmer

The patterns were easy easy to follow and using your own colour choices
you can make yours your own.

The yarn is super thick and warm.
With 36 vibrant colours to choose from you will be able to find the colours
that match your style.

I did find that I sometime spilt the threads but once I got used
to crocheting it I didn't have as many problems.
The super thickness of the yarn makes the hat warm and snugly.
And with having a perfect 6mm Boshi DMC hook to use with the project
you can get everything you need to make each of them.

The hook has a rubber handle to make it easy to use and grip.

I love the fact you can even get the labels to make sure
everyone knows that you've made your own Boshi.

And if you are still looking for more you can even get the My Boshi Book
With the book you get: 15 Myboshi patterns, 3 labels, colour card and crochet techniques.

I am sure these hats are going to be a big hit this next winter.
I'm planning on making a few for my family & friends.
I have quite a few that love to ski and I am sure they would love a My Boshi Hat.
Now all I have to choose is the colours I want to use for them.

I really enjoyed making My Boshi.
I was worried about the colours when I first received them but now it's made up
I think they really work!

With stockist all over the world why don't you make your Boshi

I received both the yarn and the patterns to review
However all opinions expressed are my own.
No monies were exchanged.
