What is KnitCrate?

KnitCrate was started in 2012 to bring premium and unique goods to fiber artists - both new and experienced - around the world with a touch of fun and surprise! Our curated subscription packages and standalone kits (anyone can order in our online store!) can ease fiber artists' discovering new projects while promising premium products.
KnitCrate is a subscription box service and online store for fiber artists around the world. We focus on:
  • fun surprise packages with our subscription box service - see How it Works
  • luxury yarns, kits and products in our online store - see our Shop
  • exclusive content that educates new and experienced knitters - KnitCrate Newbies teaches you how to knit and our iKits help experienced knitters with specific projects 
KnitCrate delivers a surprise package to your doorstep with a fun knitting project.Our subscribers receive a package of premium yarn, a pattern for a project to complete, a sweet or soothing extra, and a fun extra – these are not just samples. We source our yarns from both well-known brands and emerging gems.  We also partner with indie dyers to offer our subscribers and non-subscribers KnitCrate exclusive colorways. Whether you are a beginner or an advanced fiber artist, there will always be fresh and fun ideas to be discovered in your KnitCrate package (and it you don't know how to knit we've got you covered with KnitCrate Newbies!).

    Our site, Facebook page and other communication platforms help you get the most out of your projects.  Each month we post sneak peek pics for some in the items in upcoming KnitCrates.  Also, all can discuss their experience, suggest improvements and provide a source of inspiration, advice, and information at our publicly open Facebook page (FB.com/KnitCrate).  This helps participants and followers master techniques and upgrade their skill level.  It also connects them with fellow fiber artists around the world.  We also deliver a monthly newsletter, which can be joined by providing your email address at the bottom of this page

    Vogue Knitting included the following in their May 2013 Newsletter: "If you’re a fan of subscriptions services like Glossybox or Wine of the Month and always wished there were an equally glamorous knitting subscription, then KnitCrate is for you. KnitCrate expands on the Yarn of the Month concept by providing a multitude of options—choose from Sock, Baby, Beginner, Intermediate/Advanced, or Indie, depending on your knitting preference. Each kit includes a pattern and enough premium yarn to complete that pattern, plus great extras like hand creams, chocolates and notions. If 12 Crates a year sounds overwhelming, bimonthly subscriptions are also available."
