There are six kits coming out this fall, including Sweet & Tasty Treats by Kristen Rask. Each kit includes a full-color book of 12 patterns and all the supplied you need for your first two projects (a crochet hook, a tapestry needle, yarn, embroidery floss, felt, and stuffing).
The shop had a hat called “Barley” made up with the yarn and I just had to get me some! The pattern is free on Ravely and it really is easy to work up. A few knit rows, a few purl rows and the hat is coming together!
