If you love knitting or crocheting hats for children or just love seeing the bright-eyed look children have when giving them the latest “it” accessory, you’ll love our latest addition to Lion Brand.

Keppi is a our newest yarn; made up of bright pastels and candy-like colors, it’s the perfect yarn for a child’s or even an adult-sized Small hat. This yarn is not only multicolored but multitextured, made to look like you’ve used several different types and colors of yarn.

Keppi is just one continuous strand, no changing colors or yarn.

It comes in 8 fun, exciting, Hello Kitty cute colors like Rainbow Cupcake, Orange Fizz, Taffy, etc. Plus every ball of yarn is topped with a matching colored pompom, like the cherry on a sundae.

Whether you knit or crochet a hat for the kid who wants the new “it” accessory or a children’s charity project to bring a smile to someone’s face, using Keppi will be fun to make, fun to wear, and fun to touch!

Visualizing a Crochet Project

Many people underestimate the value of this first step of a crochet project but it can be immensely beneficial to focus on it. Truly embrace the process of thinking about what you want to make, how you want to make it, who it will be for, and which yarn you will want to use.
