July 2020 KnitCrate Review – I love the feel of this hand-dyed organic Pima Cotton yarn! Plus, don’t miss this exclusive coupon code, just for my readers.
My KnitCrate arrived a bit late this time, so I wasn’t able to unbox the July crate before the end of July. If you join the KnitCrate subscription during the month of August, you’ll get the August crate. However, some of the July yarns are still available to purchase by the skein in the KnitCrate shop, so I’m sharing my review anyway for anyone who might be interested in trying out the July KnitCrate yarns.
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.

Each month’s crate has a theme, and this month’s theme is “Color Splash”. There are three different colorways available in the KnitCrate Membership for July: “Hustle”, “Pavement”, or “Stardust”, which I received. It’s a rich, deep, purple-toned navy blue tonal colorway.
The yarn is URU.Yarn Cotton Basic, a DK weight Organic Pima Cotton. This texture is super soft and smooth, yet the yarn is lightweight and breathable for summer knit and crochet projects.
All KnitCrate subscriptions include a bonus item, and this month, it’s a wooden Tunisian crochet hook. This hook has a long, flexible cable on the end to hold many stitches at once for larger Tunisian crochet projects.
The crate includes a small pattern booklet, including the patterns from the Membership crate and Sock Membership Crate. This month, there is also a bonus pattern available as a digital download. The July crate includes 1 crochet pattern (Sanctuary Crochet Shawl) and 1 knitting pattern (Sanctuary Knit Shawl) for the Membership crate, plus the Summer Lines Shawlette as the bonus Tunisian crochet pattern. For the Sock crate, there’s a sock knitting pattern (Sparkle Pop Socks) and a crochet sock pattern (Cherry-Stem Lace Socks).
I love the look and feel of this yarn, and I’m going to have to pause some of my other projects to make a new design with this squishy cotton! I think it will make a lovely summer project, and can’t wait to get started. 🙂
Thanks so much to KnitCrate for sending me this crate to review!
