October 2020 Reveals

Let’s check out our latest crates!

For our crates this month, we worked with inspirational knit designer Chantal Miyagishima aka Knitatude as our influencer partner!

Chantal is a self-taught knitter from Calgary Alberta, Canada where wooly knits help keep her warm. She creates beginner-friendly, cozy knit designs with basic stitches and simple elegant lines that are great for the newest of knitters who want to expand their skills. Chantal will help you take your knitting game from cowls to sweaters before you know it. From her classy sassy attitude to her purple hair, we know you’ll enjoy her every bit as much as we do!

We are excited to be working with Chantal this month and can’t wait to share her design for our Membership Crate with you!

Knit Membership Pattern

This month’s knit pattern comes from the fabulous Chantal Miyagishima, Knitatude, herself! The Cozy Keltic Kerchief was inspired by those cool, crisp fall walks, where it’s too hot to pull out the full knits, but there’s still a chill in the air that bites. This double brimmed, long dickie is perfect for those days when you need the cozy warmth of wool without the bulk of a sweater.

Mrs. Crosby Travels Partner Crate, Quarterly Membership

Travel continues to be a bit tricky these days, but the ever-resourceful Mrs. Crosby managed to charter a private jet for a visit to Berlin. While she wasn’t able to attend all of her originally scheduled stops, she took in several architectural tours with the friendliest of guides (all properly masked with the safest of precautions, of course). They introduced her to a world of inspiration in the natural tones of stone, copper, and brick, and the evening lights that glowed upon it all. Most importantly, she returned with skeins of this quarter’s yarn!

This quarter, we are featuring Mrs. Crosby’s Wanderlust, a cozy blend of 90% Superwash Merino Wool and 10% Nylon. Each 100g skein gives you 120 yds (110m) of bulky weight yarn. Your Mrs. Crosby Travels Crate will include 3 skeins exclusively dyed in the Gemütlichkeit colorway that captures the beauty of Berlin’s architecture on a base that reflects the warmth of the friendship she made while on her excursion.
