REVEALED: April 2013 KnitCrate Contents

REVEALED: Our April 2013 KnitCrates featured yarns from Jill Draper Makes Stuff in the new KnitCrate exclusive colorway "Puddle Jumping" and Artesano with extras like Fashy water bottles and Lana Bella products.  Many packages included multiple patterns and/or a free pattern offer. All packages included a Lana Bella promo code and a free mini skein of the KnitCrate exclusive colorway "KnitCrate Winter" by Three Irish Girls!

This month’s KnitCrate theme is “rest and relaxation” - just in time to rescue you from Spring cleaning!  We featured many wonderful artists/designers, including pattern designer Libby Summers with LibbyTDesigns and Jill Draper:

  • Libby Summers has been featured in numerous publications.  For example, her readymade items were listed as number one of The Financial Times Magazine Valentine’s Day gifts in February 2012.  Also, her unique hand knitted hot/cold water bottle cover designs are in luxury boxes on sale at John Lewis Department stores in Great Britain.  We are proud to feature Libby’s lovely designs along with the beautiful yarn from UK-based Artesano.
  • Jill Draper was one of 100 creative small businesses to make the cut in Martha Stewart Living's American Made Awards.  The nominees were whittled down from 2,000 entries to recognize the rising stars of a new generation of small business owners that make inspiring and beautiful products.  You can find Jill’s design work in books and magazines such as Interweave Knits and Knitting Today.  And now you can find Jill’s GORGEOUS work in yarn in KnitCrate’s Puddle Jumping, our new exclusive colorway available in Nimbus and Splendor.
