We are excited to finally be able to reveal the contents of the highly anticipated and already fully sold out Malabrigo Partner Crate! This marks the first shipment of this quarterly crate and you know were already at work on a wait list and increasing our numbers for February. This shipment sold out in about 2 hours (and well be doubling our quantity for next time). We are delighted that you are excited. If you missed this shipment, be sure to sign up for the waiting list so youll get the next one for certain!
The yarn in the first crate is Arroyo, Malabrigos popular sport-weight, 100% Superwash Wool base. Its round and ultra-soft, and dyed in a custom colorway just for us called Incantado. This colorway is emerald green, purple, and blue, and reminds us of an enchanted forest. Each shipment comes with two skeins.
In addition to the yarn, each crate will also have not one, but two gorgeous extras! The first is a glittering, green, bejeweled frog prince stitch marker (not pictured) that is removable and perfect for keeping your knitting or crochet project company. The second is a pair of really high quality crane scissors with an antique brass finish. You can see these scissors in the photo above.
The patterns this month are designed by Hannah Thiessen, Knitcrates CCO. She designed two garden inspired patterns. The first is for knitters and is called Witchs Trellis and features a picot edged collar with climbing ivy ribs on the cowl:
The second is a crochet pattern called Garden Wall that features front and back post crochet stitches that give it a criss-cross, stacked block look that really shows off the beautiful colorway! This pattern includes instructions on how to double-size your cowl for two loops.
You can make both cowls with the crate, or make two of the same cowl, or make a double-sized crochet cowl, or whatever your imagination brings you! We cant wait to see what you dream up with this fantastic new crate, which ships soon. Make sure you share your projects and ideas in our dedicated Ravelry thread!
