We’re excited to introduce our exclusive Yarn Crawl Pattern…



big bad blend




The Big Bad Blend pattern is free during the Yarn Crawl, and will be available for purchase through Ravelry when the Crawl ends.

Stop by to see and touch this beautiful scarf made out of the incredibly soft Weepaca by Big Bad Wool.

We’ll have a collection of yarn bundles ready to go (like these) as well as the option to choose your own colors.





If you’d like to knit your scarf with us, come to our Big Bad Blend KAL (knit-along) Saturdays from 3-5pm (August 12, 19, 26 and September 2). Just stop in any of those Saturdays to join our KAL. We’ll be featuring a Tassel-along too for those who want help with the finishing touch.




If you’re not a fan of tassels, you can simply omit them and wear your scarf this way.

During the Yarn Crawl all 21 stores will have a store-wide discount of 10% off!

Each shop will also have a prize drawing for a gift package worth $100. You can enter at each shop you visit.

Feeling lucky? You could win this fun collection of goodies at our shop.
