Yarn Crawl 2018 FAQ
What is the Yarn Crawl?
The Hill Country Yarn Crawl is an annual event involving 18 yarn shops throughout the Hill Country region, giving yarn and fiber lovers 10 days to get to know the different area shops, get free patterns, and win prizes!

When is this year's crawl?
We start on Friday, October 5 and run through Sunday, October 14 for 10 days of Yarn Madness!

When can I get my passport?

You can reserve your passport starting on the 1st of August, and we'll have them here physically by the end of August.

What patterns is Yarnivore offering this year? What's the new Yarnivore mascot? What will Yarnivore's featured yarn be?
We have to keep a little mystery! We are pretty stoked about this year's yarnivorous critter and our shop designers are working diligently on patterns for knitters and crocheters! We will be ready!

Helpful Hint of the Week

Don't get rid of knitting needles that have lost their partners! They're super useful as stitch holders, "picks" to adjust tension on loose spots, cable needles, working three-needle bind-offs. Crocheters can use them too! They're great for stuffing toys, pulling naughty stitches into shape, loosening knots, and more. We suggest keeping your eyes open for odd knitting needles for sale cheap! (you can also use them to put up your hair, to play swords and magic wands with the kids, or to protect yourself against vampires)
