Some TOFT subscriptions may have an exclusivity period that covers a given time from the release date of a new pattern. After this period of exclusivity the pattern may be made available through other channels such as kits and bundles. We generally apply a 6 month exclusivity period to some club patterns before general release, but there are exceptional circumstances that may arise resulting in a reduced or increased period. At TOFT we test our patterns to ensure that you have enough yarn to complete your project. We also understand that it can be frustrating when you have too much yarn left over, so we've done our best to make sure the yarn included in our Edward's Menageriecrochet kits is just the right amount. If you were to weigh your animal parts before adding stuffing, you will find that the majority of animals add up to around 75g. Most of our kits come with 75-100g of yarn for you to complete your project, allowing for techniques like loop stitch, and adding any features such as chain loops or slip stitch spines once the animal has been sewn up.

If you have opted for a printed TOFT pattern, this will usually come in A5 or A6 postcard format. Printed on high quality recyclable silk card, you will find your pattern wrapped up with the yarn required for your kit. On one side will be an image of the finished project, and the other side will contain your pattern, tools and materials needed and any helpful abbreviations. Projects at this level are suitable for complete beginners who have never crocheted before and just require learning one or two types of stitch.Tension is the number of stitches and rows required to achieve a given unit of measurements using a specific pattern, yarn weight and needle size. It is the foundation of a pattern and is used to determine the size, density and drape of a project. Your tension can be affected by a variety of factors including the way you hold your yarn, how you are feeling and whether you are using the correct yarn stated in the pattern, and it can ultimately affect the amount of yarn you use, resulting in running out on some occasions. The amount of yarn used will vary for each animal, as well as being affected by the maker's tension. If you find that you have run out of yarn and your tension is measuring as correct, please get in touch with our Customer Care team via [email protected]. If you're wondering how big an animal will be once you have finished crocheting it in TOFT DK yarn, we've broken down each Edward's Menageriecollection for you in a handy table below. Please note that all measurements are approximate and can vary depending on additional features such as ears, manes, hats etc. The size may also be affected by your tension and if you are crocheting with a different yarn. There are some characters from the Edward's Menageriecollection that do not fit in to the table below, such as Graeme the Octopus or Hope the Whale. In this case you will find an approximate measurement in the product description, but they are still likely to be close to the approximate measurements we have given below.
