10,000 New Knitters Event

Are you an established knitter who would love to share your passion? Or, are you a person who admires all the fabulous things your knitter friends, family and co-workers are creating?

Join YarnScout and skacel on November 10, 2018, as we challenge the knitting community to create 10,000 New Knitters in one day! skacel has provided us with FREE kits for new knitters to make a pair of fingerless mitts. Video instruction will be available starting November 10th on the 10,000 New Knitters website, plus YarnScout will be helping beginners get started that same day.

Here’s how it works:

As a new or established knitter, you can pick up a free NEW KNIT KIT starting now (while supplies last) during YarnScout store hours. 

Established knitters are encourage to use this kit to teach someone how to knit on November 10th! By pairing a new knitter with a source of help, they will be more likely to finish the project and develop their skills further. 

New knitters can stop by YarnScout on November 10th for help getting started, or watch the instructional videos on the 10,000 New Knitters website. Our store will be open expanded hours that day, from 10am-3pm, and we'll have members of the knitting community on hand to provide assistance.

Be sure to share your experience via social media by tagging @10000NewKnitters and using #10000NewKnitters in your posts!
