To begin the celebration of summer, we teamed up with Michele Costa of Stitch and Hustle! Not only is Michele a designer in knit and crochet, but she is also the host and organizer of the nationwide fiber fun retreat series, Stitch Up! Whether it be through the events that bring our fiber community together or the countless free patterns on her blog, Michele is a light in our fiber community. This month she not only helped design each colorway, she also designed both featured membership patterns- a real treat for our subscribers! 

July’s theme is Color Splash - Red-hot poppy, bubblegum pink, dark magenta, silver, and teal find a home in this fun, exciting palette.​

During our Early Preview, we only show you the yarn that is coming in the next crate, and not the patterns or extras, so that you can make decisions about changing your color vibe or adding a crate for the new month! If you need help changing your vibe, you can watch the video below for more details or contact us by clicking here.

Remember: The option to swap your color vibe is only open between June 15-28 for these crates.


Now let’s squish the yarn!


KnitCrate Membership

This month’s featured Membership yarn is our URU.YARN Cotton Basic, a 100% Unmercerized Organic Pima Cotton. This yarn is a DK weight and each hank is 275 yards in length at 100g. The cotton is spun and plied in a 3 ply construction resulting in a very sturdy and breathable fabric.

Energize Me: Hustle

This colorway is inspired by one of Michele’s favorite colors. With a melange tonal effect, this colorway perfectly represents all of Michele’s favorite shades of pink!

Chill Out: Stardust

A deep and tonal navy that reminds us of the dark night sky.

All Natural: Pavement

This multi tone gray is a nod to the busy streets and sidewalks that make up Michele’s favorite cities.

Butterfly Boxes 2017 Update

Wow - what a year its been!

image

First, thank you. We cant say that enough! When KNITCRATE announced that Butterfly Boxes would be their charity of the year back in January, we were thrilled. But we didnt really know what to expect. We thought we might see a few items trickle in here or there. We thought subscribers might send one item and call it good.

But you surprised us! Weve received dozens of items, and most packages have contained multiples. Packages have come from international subscribers. Theyve come with notes telling us that the subscriber was also an immigrant or refugee. Theyve come with items made by both the subscriber and her daughter. Theyve come with your very best work. We are grateful and so honored to be able to share your talents with those who have been arriving in the last few months.

We thought you might want to hear a bit about those who are receiving your gifts. You might be aware that the number of refugees arriving in the US has dropped this year. But some are still arriving, and weve had the privilege of being at the airport to greet many of them.
