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.

Treasure Hunt Patterns

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.  

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 Company

Since 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.


Yarnover Truck

The Yarnover Truck is your local yarn boutique on wheels! Southern California's only and the country's first mobile yarn store! Our 107 square feet of space is packed full of our specialty, gorgeous hand-dyed yarns from 10 different talented indie-dyers, including 14 different stunning exclusive colors dyed just for the Truck. We'll be in a different spot each of the four days of the crawl. Here is where you'll find us:
  • Thursday 3/24: The Altered Stitch (10-6)
  • Friday 3/25: Alamitos Bay Yarn Co. (9-6)
  • Saturday 3/26: The Knitting Tree LA (10-6)
  • Sunday 3/27: BUKU Yarns (10-6)


Yarnaholics Store & Boutique

Yarnaholic™ Store & Boutique sits on Historic Route 66 in Claremont, where you'll find lifestyle products that complement any fiber enthusiast,  including custom colorways from artisan dyer partners. The shop has undergone a name change, formerly Bourgee Boutique, and an ownership change too. The current owner is Gina Carlson, who took over the shop from her mother. This shop is a next-generation shop with over 20 years of serving the Claremont yarn community.

Gather DTLA

Gather DTLA is located in the heart of the Historic Core of downtown Los Angeles, within walking distance of many of downtown's landmarks, including Grand Central Market, the Bradbury Building, Disney Concert Hall, the Broad and MOCA art museums, Angel's Flight, and numerous fantastic restaurants. Our shop is nestled inside of the Last Bookstore's mezzanine level next door to the Spring Arts Collective. All three offer reason enough to visit Gather DTLA and satisfy your yarn, book, and art needs all at once.
