January 2019 Membership Crate Reveal

Whew! What a year 2018 was. This was our first full year of Knitcrate Membership, and this subscription has proven to be one of our fastest growing and most exciting to plan and see everyone receive. We’ve had a crazy time–especially with the shipping snafus at the end of 2018–and we’re looking forward to a fresh new year that’s a bit calmer, more collected, and smoother.

The theme to start off the...

August 2018 Membership Knitting Tips & Tricks

I was very excited about this month’s KnitCrate for two reasons. First… there was a pattern booklet! I loved this because I could immediately flip through and see what the patterns were like. (In fact, I was so inspired I cast-on immediately.)

Second… SPECKLES! Speckle-dyed yarns are so on-trend this year that I was
secretly wondering if we’d see some in a KnitCrate. Waiting did not disappoint.

July 2018 Membership Crate Knitting Tips & Tricks

There’s got to be some of you out there like me, trying like mad to catch up on your KnitCrate FOs (finished objects)! We’ve been getting some big-time yardage lately, but it takes time to finish projects made with fingering weight yarns, right? This month we get a breather with a quick knit in squishy soft Knitologie Bouncy Worsted. “Bouncy” is an accurate adjective here, because this superwash...

July 2018 Membership Crate Reveal

The first box to be revealed this month is our beautiful Membership Crate! We drew vivid inspiration from our Modern Primary theme this month to introduce four beautiful colorways on our ultra-soft, squishy, Knitologie Bouncy Worsted. Bouncy Worsted has 180 yards of 100% Superwash Merino per skein. Each crate will feature two skeins of one of these four colors:

Top row, L-R: Dashboard, Paws Off

Cashmere, we got cashmere! Not to mention 874 wonderful yards of it. Ok, ok, it’s a blend, but let me tell you, it goes a long way to make each skein of Vidalana Sumptous feel like a cloud. Yes, you can use this 75% superwash Merino, 15% nylon, 10% cashmere yarn for socks–but it’s excellent for shawls, too!

June 2018 Theme Board Reveal

Bright, modern, and fun, this month’s theme Ice Scream is a play on the children’s rhyme: you scream, I scream, we all scream for ice cream! While this month’s color palette would certainly result in some pretty crazy flavors, it makes for a very exciting jumping off point for a pop of color in your crate. If you haven’t already, discuss this month’s board in the Ravelry group, and make sure you...

Crochet Tips for the May 2018 Membership Crate

My name is Julie, and I am a crochet designer & instructor. I’m excited by the Knitcrate Contemporary box because I love Marie Segares & her crochet patterns; and I also love crochet cables!

Reading through Marie Segares’ cabled clutch pattern, I immediately thought that some of you might wonder what locking stitch markers are, so I made a little video explanation:

I’m a huge fan of using stitch...
