Do you love a yarn crawl? Do we have great news for you!

Join us for the Fall Colours Crawl Ontario!
September 15 - November 15, 2019

Take a tour through Ontario, take in all the amazing fall colours and pick up some yarn from a carefully curated selection of local Yarn Shops and Studios to make one of two amazing fall hat and scarf / cowl sets.

How does it work?

Starting September 15th, Fall Colours Crawl Ontario passports will be available for pickup at any of the eight participating shops. Swing by and pick up your passport to start! You’ll also be provided a free copy of the pattern for the crawl OR a digital download code so that you can drop it directly into your Ravelry queue.

The patterns include both a knitted and crochet option. The crochet pattern will be for a woven headband and scarf which is convertible to a cowl should you prefer. The knitted pattern will be for a fun and easy colourwork hat and a convertible scarf / cowl. Both patterns will be available for free to crawl participants from September 15 - November 15 after which time they will become available for purchase to non-crawlers.

The patterns will require 8 colours of DK weight yarn in 50 g skeins, and each shop will have a unique tonal colourway that you will use as part of your finished projects.

We specialize in luxury yarns with an emphasis on finding the best yarns as well as developing custom yarns with our global-wide mill partners to bring you products no-one else has. We are also well-known for our humour – we could call that blue skein Dye Lot #346 but where’s the fun in that – one of our yarn clubs is the Smart-Ass Knitters for World Domination Club; ’nuff said?

Everyone here pitches in with the dyeing, promotion, advertising & production, plus Kim and Marit are fashion knitwear designers extraordinaire in their own rights! We’re located back in the woods in West Guilford, Ontario – go north of Peterborough for 90 minutes then make a left at the moose.
