Celebrate 10 Years Maker's Style: By Making Something January 18, 2022 09:13
The Celebration Continues!
This week we're excited to bring you 2 brand new patterns designed as part of the 10-year celebration, plus reintroduce you to 5 more unique and amazing shops.
You're invited to celebrate 10 years of the Los Angeles County Yarn Crawl like makers do - by making something amazing! We've created special Treasure Hunt patterns to encourage each crawler to make the event their own and create something beautiful.
Treasure Hunt Patterns
You'll find we have both knit and crochet versions of our Treasure Hunt Patterns that are written to use 5 different colors of fingering weight yarn. This way you can show off the variety of yarns you'll discover during the 143 miles of the L.A. County Yarn Crawl's 15 different participating shops and showcase them in this piece.
You can find all the fun details and download the patterns right now on the Los Angeles County Yarn Crawl website! The Treasure Hunt patterns are in addition to the traditional free patterns each shop gives out during the crawl. They are something extra special to celebrate this year's Crawl. Now learn a bit about 5 more shops participating in this year's Yarn Crawl!
Alamitos Bay Yarn CompanySince the last Crawl, Alamitos Bay Yarn Company has been under new ownership: Carla, Michelle & Sandra have taken over this great shop and kept the community thriving! All three ladies have at least 13 years of history as both customers and teachers with the shop. With a beautiful and unique waterfront setting, you'll find a wide range of yarns in all fibers that are the perfect inspiration for your knitting, weaving, and crocheting projects.
Located in Redondo Beach, L'Atelier has been open for an amazing 46 years, making it the longest open participating crawl shop. They specialize in unique yarns, including cashmere, silk, bamboo, alpaca, fine wools, and spectacular blends. Shoppers will be able to explore a realm of knitting that is fresh and exciting. L'Atelier is also unique in that they are the only participating shop with 2 locations - Redondo & Encino. We'll share more about their Encino location in our next email.
