December 2020 KnitCrate Review – This soft, squishy, merino / cashmere blend yarn has a touch of sparkle! Plus, don’t miss this exclusive coupon code, just for my readers.
KnitCrate is a monthly yarn subscription service, delivering high-quality, hand-dyed yarn to your doorstep. They offer several different crates, with different types of yarn and projects. The crate shown in the video above is the KnitCrate Membership, which includes 2 skeins of premium yarn in the featured colorway, and at least 2 exclusive patterns (1 knitting pattern, 1 crochet pattern). All KnitCrates ship worldwide with free shipping and handling. Members also receive reward points and discounts towards future purchases.
Use Coupon Code “YAYFORYARN20” for 20% off your first KnitCrate.
(The December crate is no longer available, but this yarn can still be purchased by the skein in the KnitCrate Shop. Plus, active KnitCrate Members receive extra discounts!)
In this month’s Membership Crate, the featured yarns are sparkly! There are three glitter-sprinkled colorways to choose from in the December crate: a bright coral pink, a soft, creamy beige, and the lovely periwinkle shade that I received.
The yarn is Audine Wools Twinkle DK, a soft, squishy blend of merino wool, cashmere, and stellina. I love the smooth, luxurious feel of merino / cashmere blends, and the touch of sparkle from the stellina is so pretty!
All KnitCrate subscriptions include a bonus item, and this month, it’s a purple cinch backpack! This would make a handy project bag as well.
The crate usually includes a small pattern booklet, including the patterns from the Membership crate and Sock Membership Crate. With the new eco-friendly packaging, the pattern booklet is now available as a digital download. The November crate includes 1 crochet pattern (Snowfall Scarf) and 1 knitting pattern (Woodstock Shawl) for the Membership crate. For the Sock crate, there’s a sock knitting pattern (Centered Socks) and a crochet sock pattern (Perfect Ranks). There are also two bonus patterns (online only), the Nostalgia Vest (crochet) and the Lavender Purls Sweater (knit).
Thanks so much to KnitCrate for sending me this crate to review!
