Each color on the cat's body has a different texture drawn on to look like cables, bobbles, scallops, ribbing, and other knit or crochet textures. Main text is curly and reads Yarnivore. Secondary text is plain and reads Your Happy Place

One Stitch at a Time!"Great things are done by a series of small things brought together." - Vincent van Gogh
April Reflection: Projects are done by a series of small stitches brought together.

We learn one stitch at a time.  

No matter how large or small, how functional or fabulous,

We create works of art.

We make great things one stitch at a time.

We hope you find joy in every stitch!

 -Caryn and the Yarnivore Crew

Some patterns call for you to knit or crochet with a double or triple strand of yarn. Sometimes, the pattern will ask you to do this with only one color, which can be annoying if you only need 1 ball of yarn. When we saw TheKnottyBoss's Instagram Reel on how to triple strand with one ball of yarn, we were, uhh, hooked! ????
