The free gift is the Needle and Hook Case. On one side it says Darn Good Yarn in white and their slogan Start at Love, also in white, printed on black fabric. The back is black fabric and it has printed on it rows of very large knit stitches in red, orange, pink, and purple. The inside of the case is also black. The closure is a loop with a brown button.
This box also contained patterns for a Treasure Keeper Pouch with both knit and crochet versions.

For my reviews I always make the project included with the kit or box. Therefore, I made the crochet version of the Treasure Keeper Pouch. There was no gauge swatch so I used the recommended hook size of H. I could tell that I was not going to have enough yarn for all 17 rows. I ended up skipping row 17 so that I could still have enough yarn for the drawstring, and even then I ended up with a rather short drawstring. I still ended up with a beautiful and functional pouch!
