Its that time again! Today kicks off the beginning of our March Reveal week and were so excited to show you whats coming in this months crates. This months theme is Whisper, and is all about those soft, subtle, seasonal transitions. Weve designed the Membership Crate colorway, Titmouse, in honor of a frequent visitor to Hannahs birdfeeder, the Tufted Titmouse:
This scrappy little bird might look plain here, but in person hes quite charming! With a deep navy beak and soft lavender and taupe feathers, a spot of bright yellow and that adorable little crest, how could we resist naming a colorway after him? Dyed on a new base, Knitologie Sheen (75% Merino Wool, 15% Silk, 10% Cashmere) is a super-soft, luxurious fingering weight with 400 yards in each skein.
The luxurious blend of this base puts it a little beyond the cost of a standard skein, so weve got one skein in each crate, but weve partnered it with a special extra: aMake all the things zipper project bag in cotton canvas that youll love using for your March projects! Weve also gone above and beyond with the patterns this month, giving you two options each for knitting and crochet.
The crate comes with one skein, so weve got two one-skein patterns that use exactly the right amount. First up, the Solennelle shawl designed by Kendall Timko features the sweetest lace edge:
While Hannah Thiessens simple but sweet slipped-stitch hat, Birdseed, is the perfect fitted beanie for variegated yarns:
If youre planning on picking up an extra skein during Doubledown (the period during the month where we send you a special code via our newsletter–make sure you are signed up here), youll be able to make one of the featured two-skein patterns!
Lilia Vaninis elegant, knitted Penelope Set features a scarf and delicate headband:
While Bonnie Barkers squish-a-licious Honeycomb Shawl showcases front post crochet and crocheted cables:
Thats 400 yards of luxury blend yarn, a project bag, our monthly magazine, and four patterns, all for $24.99–but we didnt stop there. Members of Membership or Sock Membership also get access to the new pop-up shop patterns every month for free (available on the downloads page, which you can access via the link on the table of contents page of the booklet). Stay tuned as those patterns are revealed later in the week!
