Cris Crochet Shop embarks on another adventurous collection to encourage our mini explorers to connect with nature

Autumn Collection of crochet hats and scarves with woodland animal theme

Our Woodland Friends Collection by Cris Crochet Shop

Let our children's imagination and love of nature thrive with Our Woodland Friends Collection as they explore the great outdoors.

SHEFFIELD, ENGLAND, UK, September 11, 2018 / -- Cris Salerma, crochet gift designer and milliner extraordinaire, is very excited to release Cris Crochet Shop’s latest Autumn Collection on the 17th of September 2018. Our Woodland Friends is a collection of fun handmade crochet hats and scarves with the theme of woodland animals – fox, hedgehog, rabbit, ladybird, frog, owl, and deer. Our designer is very fortunate to have access to woodland in Sheffield, and has been inspired by the overarching ethos of her community of encouraging everyone, especially children, to connect with and respect our woodland neighbours. Watching her daughter explore and interact with some of these creatures in their local woodland has sparked the designer’s imagination to create this amazing Autumn Collection.

With the emerging trend of city dwellers moving to the country in the UK (, Cris believes that educating the next generation about taking care of our countryside is much more imperative today as it has ever been. The woodland critters featured in her new Autumn Collection are just some of the creatures that suburbanites have spotted “visiting” our gardens. We need to remind ourselves and teach our children that we are the visitors, and to respect and care for these beautiful creatures as they have been living here way before we decided to settle in the countryside.

Our Woodland Friends Collection lets children’s imagination run wild, and gives them a choice of being a sly red fox, a prickly hedgehog, a floppy-eared rabbit, a black-spotted ladybird, a jumpy green frog, a googly-eyed owl, or an antlered red-nosed reindeer. These fun woodland animal hats and scarves may be acquired individually or as a set – according to your mini explorers’ woodland personality. All crochet hats and scarves are handmade by the designer using the softest locally-made yarn from Yorkshire. Hence, not only do these fun woodland animal hats and scarves delight your special youngsters, these will keep them warm and toasty these milder seasons.

Our Woodland Friends Collection ranges in price from £10 to £50 (12 USD – 65 USD), and will be exclusively available from Cris Crochet Shop on Etsy from the 17th of September 2018 ( Members of the Cris Crochet VIP Club are given exclusive previews and discounts on all collections.

Known for inspiring parents, grandparents, aunts, and uncles with handmade gift ideas, Cris Crochet Shop lets them delight the beloved children in their lives with creative crochet fun hats and delightful gifts. The shop was the result of Cris’s new-found passion for crochet and delighting her daughter. Prior to starting her shop, our designer was a professor of engineering in Manila, a research associate in Tokyo and London, and a local teacher of science and maths. Cris’s crochet skills only came about after the birth of her one and only daughter 5 years ago. This was a complete surprise for her family and friends as crafting involving fabric was a complete no-go activity for Cris as she was always last in class growing up in Manila. While watching and nurturing her daughter grow, her crochet skills grew as well with every gift giving opportunity, mostly for her friends’ tots. The inspiration for her first collection, which was the rainbow unicorn hat, a Christmas gift for her daughter’s best friend, was the trigger in which the shop was started. Since then, Cris Crochet Shop’s most loyal customers have enjoyed gifting their special little (and not so little) people with her fun and whimsical creations. Cris Crochet Shop has been featured in the Star Tribune, Daily Herald, The Press, Oxford Times, Boston Herald, Northern Echo, Digg, Union Tribune, and The Herald, as well as the Spire Vintage Fair, Greystones Craft Fair, Whirlow Hall Farm Fayre, and the Film & Comic Con Sheffield.
