November 2020 KnitCrate Review – I love the color combos of these mini-skeins! 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.

Each month’s crate has a theme, and this theme features sets of colors designed for colorwork projects. Instead of two 100g skeins as normal, the crate includes four 50g skeins in coordinating solid colors. There are three different color combinations available in the KnitCrate Membership for November: a cool-toned color palette, a warmer-toned palette, and the lovely neutral set that I received.
The yarn is Vidalana Ambient Worsted, a crisp, smooth, Peruvian Highland Wool. It feels so soft, and I can tell it will have great stitch definition when it’s worked up. This high-quality wool is not itchy at all.
All KnitCrate subscriptions include a bonus item, and this month, it’s a nifty pen. Clicking the pen turns on a tiny flashlight at the end!
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 (Veining Beanie) and 1 knitting pattern (Growth Ring Baby Sweater) for the Membership crate. For the Sock crate, there’s a sock knitting pattern (November Rain Socks) and a crochet sock pattern (Sensible Socks). There are also two bonus patterns (online only), the Wave Pulse Bag (crochet) and the Leonardo Hat (knit).
I’m really liking the color combo of these squishy yarns, and I’m excited to try them out in my next colorwork project!
Thanks so much to KnitCrate for sending me this crate to review!
