We look forward to seeing each of YOU – wearing something you have hand-made! We will be ready, camera in hand, to snap photos of all your lovely hand knits, crochets and wovens — and of course hand-spuns get double points! We especially hope to see many of you wearing your own version of this year’s Mystery Knit or Crochet Along – Yowza!

So get ready to Crawl – Download and Print your 2017 Rose City Yarn Crawl Passport

Not familiar with how the Yarn Crawl works? Check out the details at the official Rose City Yarn Crawl’s site.

Stay tuned to learn more about Northwest Wool’s special patterns for the Rose City Yarn Crawl. The theme for this year’s yarn crawl is “Portland Pastimes” and our patterns reflect the favorite pastimes of our designers – Judy Smitke (Knit) and Tinaka (Crochet). You can obtain both of these RCYC Patterns for FREE, if you make a purchase at Northwest Wools during the four days of the Yarn Crawl.
