Many Hands Scarf

Take a look at our knitting pattern for the Yarn Crawl!

Emily created this Many Hands Scarf using the lovely Harrisville Shetland. Such a fun pattern. Cute little details and a wee fringe. Love it!

Yarn Crawl!


The Rose City Yarn Crawl is happening right now! Take a look at what we are doing at Close Knit.

It is different than it has been in years past, but we are still so thrilled to have all of these beautiful yarns and samples in the shop. Mostly we appreciate all of you, even though we are not coming together in large groups this year. Here are some yarn pics for you! Take a look at our Instagram page for more!

Yarn Crawl 2021 - Now Virtual!


The folks in charge of the yarn crawl this year have made the tough decision to move the crawl online for the health and safety of our whole community. Details are still unfolding, and it sounds like shops will generally be open regular hours with limited customer capacity based on each individual shop. Details will be posted here as we work hard to figure out how to continue this tradition in a responsible way!

Don't forget to order you RCYC bag to commemorate this year when we had to get creative to make this work! Thank you all for your patience and understanding.

Geek Sweater!

Pic borrowed from Rav pattern page
Loving this beautiful Hachi sweater from designer Kineco Yuki. It's knit up in Daruma Geek, and we have eight cool (and a little weird colors) of this yarn in stock! These are my favorites.

Online Beginning Sweater Class!

Adreinne's next round of her Beginning Sweater Class is all set to start next month. Take a look at the details here and stop in or give us a ring (503-288-4568) to sign up!

Rose City Yarn Crawl

Things are going to look a little different this year, but we are excited to welcome yarn-lovers into our shop for the 2021 Rose City Yarn Crawl. The crawl will take place March 4-14 to give folks more time and space to spread out and keep all of us safe. Take a look at the RCYC page for more details.

If you would like a 2021 RCYC bag, please pre-order yours now. You can choose to pick your up at the local Portland yarn shop of your choice, or you can have it mailed to you in March. We will have a very limited supply available in the shop during the crawl, so the pre-order is your best bet if you love collecting these bags. We can't wait to see you all!
