Take a trip to the edge of the world where the land meets the water with our theme of Land and Sea. Feel the magic of the majestic, mysterious ocean as you listen to the waves hitting the rocky shore and washing up along the sand. Lichen- and moss-coated trees line the beach behind you and provide a peaceful, secluded oasis where you can enjoy the solitude of nature as you take in the picture-perfect view.

Meet this month’s featured yarns in our reveal video!

Knit & Crochet Club

Our featured yarn for February is a KnitCrate favorite: Vidalana Ascendance! This bouncy chainette yarn is airy and light, and even though it’s a sport weight yarn, it works similarly to a worsted or aran weight yarn. This 100% Peruvian Highland Wool will keep you warm and snuggly during the winter. Each 100g skein is 328 yards (300 m), and you will receive two matching skeins in one of three colorways.

Energize Me: Fatigue Green

Enjoy the deep green of the forest with Fatigue Green, a smooth avocado green that reminds us of the rich moss that clings to tree trunks and the foliage above.

Chill Out: Vivid Blue

This sunny and saturated Vivid Blue brings us to the deck of a cruise ship looking out over the ocean. Keep an eye out for whales as you gaze at the brilliant blue.

All Natural: Limestone

The brilliant white of Limestone evokes the crisp cleanliness of stones that dirt and moss don't attach to, glimmering in the sunlight as you make your way from the forest to the sea.
