Four years ago on January 1, amidst the blanket of snow that covered most of West Michigan, an idea was born. An idea to incorporate a love for knitting with an amazing product to create what has now been BeCozi.
That's right! It's our birthday!
Seems only yesterday our founder Larissa knit her first blanket using her hands and found it to be much easier than using arm knitting. It was discovering the simplicity and excitement of working with this entirely new to her yarn that she decided to share it with others. First by making beautiful blankets out of it, later coming up with more patterns, more products, DIY kits. We went on to add more yarns, to get creative with our packaging, to share our know-how with the world through our YouTube channel.
Little did we know that only four years after BeCozi's conception, we would be shipping our orders to all 50 states and more than 60 countries all over the world. Or that our YouTube channel would have over 120 videos, over 71K subscribers and over 6.4 million views! The Facebook group we started on February 2017 - BeCozi Giant Knitting Club - quickly grew to be a group of 2,400 fellow giant knitters from across the globe.
BeCozi grew and we couldn't be more thankful. To our families for their support, to our suppliers for their hard work when we came to them with new, wild ideas. And, of course, to YOU - our loyal customers who gave us wonderful feedback on your favorite products and spread the word.
Please help us celebrate this incredible milestone! Raise a glass of whatever it is your are drinking, be it champagne or a kale smoothie! And stay with us as we have many great things coming in 2020!
