Crochet Along

Teach Knit Picks to crochet! We've expanded our selection of crochet hooks, books, and patterns, but some of our staff members don't know what to do with them! Help Kim and IDP designer Allison teach the rest of the Knit Picks staff to crochet.

Kim, Allison, and Lori, Georgianna, & Jeanine (who all work in customer service), are going to attempt to teach Kerin, Nina, Kelley, Stacey, Jenna, Angela, and Alison to crochet this summer. This should be interesting. Join in the fun!

2. Timeframe: Knit Picks staff will be learning to crochet throughout June and July 2010. However, this is an ongoing group with no defined end time. Crocheters can join at any time.

We've expanded our selection of crochet books to over 80 titles.

We also sell Clover, Susan Bates, and Boye crochet hooks, individually and in sets.
