It’s time for a sneak peek of January’s yarn and patterns!
As we welcome both a new month and a new year, let’s take some time to recharge by indulging in a little Cabin Retreat. Bundle up for snowy midday hikes where bright skies bring depth to rich woodsy hues. Long winter nights have us reaching for toasty-warm handmade scarves and shawls to keep away the chill and start a new project. We embrace the peace and serenity of a cozy cabin in the woods with this month’s yarns.
Important to remember: Color Vibes are BACK! The option to swap your color vibe is only open between December 15-28 for the January 2022 crates.
Knit & Crochet Club
Get ready to feel cozy with this month’s featured yarn, Audine Wools Flannel, which is just as comforting as the name suggests. An insulating blend of 47% Suri, 38% Alpaca Wool, and 15% Merino, it will keep you warm from your head to your toes. This 2-ply DK yarn has enviable softness and drape that will lend class to your creations. Each 100g skein comes with 231 yards, and you will receive two matching skeins in your color vibe of choice.
Energize Me: Buffalo
The beautiful deep burgundy of buffalo reminds us of buffalo check flannel shirts and blankets, perfect for wrapping around your shoulders as you sit by the fire and watch the flickering flames.
Chill Out and All Natural: Slate
Both our Chill Out and All Natural color vibes this month are the sophisticated Slate, a dark grey that calls to mind the deepening shadows of the forest as nightfall approaches.

Get ready for your cabin retreat by making a pair of socks in this month’s featured yarn, Uru.Yarn Flicker Sock. This blend of 70% Non-Superwash Merino, 20% Nylon, 10% Stellina is warm and snuggly for your next pair of footwear or whatever project this yarn is destined to become. Each 100g skein comes with 400 yards of 3-ply fingering-weight yarn, and your crate will include one skein in the color of your choice.
Energize Me: Thicket
The earthy tones of the forest shine in this delightful basil green.
Chill Out: Lodge
Enjoy the crisp blue of a woodland stream with this muted medium gray blue.
All Natural: Sapwood
The creamy beige found inside logs of freshly chopped wood inspired this natural toned colorway.
Please Note: In an effort to work with our partner mill to move up production for future months, some of our originally planned colorways are not being produced. You may see pattern samples made in some of these not-produced colorways.

Introducing: KnitCrate’s Exclusive LL Yarn Co. Retreat Club!
Earlier this year, dyer Amanda Jarvis made the decision to discontinue the Mrs. Crosby and Lorna’s Laces brands. In their place, she has begun dyeing under the LL Yarn Co. brand that features layered multi colors and tonal shades to spark your creativity.
As a result, we have had to make changes to our Mrs. Crosby Travels Club with an offering that better fits the new LL Yarn Co. aesthetic. We are excited to share this newly packaged offering along with our first quarter’s collaboration!
Each quarter, LL Yarn Co. Retreat Club members receive a specially curated care package inspired by a different destination ideal for an indulgent maker’s retreat.
★ Approximately 200-300g (over 2-3 skeins) of premium, hand-dyed LL Yarn Co. yarn (you’ll receive the perfect amount needed for either of the included patterns).
★ Two exclusive, designer patterns - one for knitters, one for crocheters - complete with instructions and pictures to make a specially designed piece from the quarter’s theme.
★ An exciting extra related to the quarter’s retreat destination, patterns, or overall theme.
★ A digital booklet filled with the month’s patterns along with content that entices the senses to help you create a retreat experience right from your home.
With your membership, you will receive an everyday member 30% off discount on any item in our Member Central shop. You will also receive an exclusive Double Down coupon code good for the quarter to be used to purchase additional skeins of LL Yarn Co. yarn (not combinable with the Member Central discount).
This January, our retreat setting is the stunning Banff National Park in Alberta, Canada where we imagine staying cozy at a cabin in the woods near Lake Louise…all without leaving your armchair.
This quarter’s Retreat Club features LL Yarn Co. Icy, a 100% Superwash Merino, 4-ply, worsted weight yarn. Enjoy the snowy peaks around Lake Louise as it intermingles with wintry shades of blue and green from the lake itself and surrounding pine trees in the Snow Capped colorway. Bring the beauty of Canada into your next project with this exquisite yarn that packs generous yardage and just the right amount of softness and drape. Members will receive 2 - 150g skeins packing 315 yds in each skein.
