The Ruthless Crafter introduces new crochet character hat line

Elizabeth Ruth’s premier line of endearing crochet monster hat patterns, kits & limited edition hats is expected to be one of the most talked about collections.

KITCHENER, ONTARIO, CANADA, August 13, 2017 — Elizabeth Ruth from The Ruthless Crafter is thrilled to release her premiere Monster’s Ball Collection of lively, colourful and imaginative monster hats designed to inspire crocheters and to encourage children to enter a world of carefree monster merriment everywhere on August 20, 2017.

The Ruthless Crafter is known for helping families and crocheters express their playful side and this collection does not disappoint. Thus, for the first time, a curious quartet of monsters are ready to meet you. Herbie the scientist, Spike the skateboarding rebel, and Hazel & Henry, the twin artists, are delightful creatures that each come with individual bios to tell their story.

The monster patterns and kits are designed to showcase each maker’s talent while enticing crocheters to put their own stamp of creativity on each monster.

Several products come in the 2017 Pantone colour of the year, greenery, to capitalize on today’s trends. Our kits and hats use locally made Koigu luxurious merino superwash wool. This wool is spun from the finest merino sheep in the world and is plied for durability. This lightweight wool is soft, silky, and retains the natural elasticity of merino. In addition to being natural and biodegradable, merino wool is very soft, breathable, sleek, elegant and exceptionally stylish. In contrast to synthetics, merino reacts to changes in body temperature and helps you stay warm when the weather is cold, and cool when the weather is hot. It’s also exquisite to work with.

Elizabeth Ruth is excited to welcome her fans to the new handmade product line collection they’ve been requesting.
