The James River Yarn Crawl is scheduled for May 13-21, 2022, and the six participating shops have been behind the scenes creating an in-store and online event for all.
As part of this year’s Crawl, all six shops invite you to pick up an exclusive mini skein at each shop and participate in our Make-A-Long after the Crawl.
Two designers have created two brand new patterns for this Make-A-Long. Jenna Hycner has created the knit pattern - Blend It Like a Boss. You also can find her on instagram @fibergnome. Christine Bush created the crocheted Sweetheart Crawl Shawl. She can be found as @bffcraftynotions on Instagram.
Each shawl was knit or crocheted with six fingering weight mini skeins, one from each shop, dyed exclusively for this year’s crawl. Pick up a mini when you visit each shop, and blend or fade them any way you like for your own unique souvenir of this year’s crawl.
Patterns will debut May 6 Ravelry, and each shop will feature their exclusive mini skein color beginning May 13, in each store and online.
The Make-A-Long will run from May 22 through June 30. Post your finished objects to either the Ravelry Thread or Instagram and Facebook and get qualified for a gift card from all six shops of $25 each! The Grand Prize winner will be chosen at random from all the pictures of finished objects posted. Winners are not limited to the two patterns. As long as all six mini skeins are used, your project will qualify. For those posting their projects to Instagram or Facebook, please use the tag: #JRYCMAL2022
We hope you have fun hopping from shop to shop during the Crawl, gathering up your minis, and we hope you have just as much fun with our post-Crawl Make-A-Long.
