The crawl will take place in "hybrid mode" again this year - visit any of the 21 participating shops in Oregon and Washington (and 2 bonus shops) by making a trip in person or making an online/phone purchase, get your passport stamp, and get entered in some fantastic prize and gift certificate drawings. We'll have an entire section of our webstore set up just for regional yarn events in late April - get your passport there, pick up some shop swag or fun accessories and notions, and grab the yarn for our lovely patterns once the Slow Crawl begins on Friday, May 26.
If you're visiting us in person: just show us your Slow Crawl passport and photo ID, and we'll get you hooked up with your sticker and pattern codes - no purchase necessary.
Online visitors: you'll need to make a purchase in order to receive your sticker and pattern codes; we're posting some great options to fit any budget in our online shop under the LYS Tours and Crawls section. Please let us know you're doing a virtual visit for the Slow Crawl by leaving us a note in the comments section of the order form when you make your purchase.
THE PATTERNS: 2023
This year's designs play up the 2023 Slow Crawl's "Farm to Fiber" theme; they'll be available to participants once the Slow Crawl officially kicks off on Friday, May 26. Samples of both patterns will be on display in the shop starting in late May. These patterns are FREE as part of your Slow Crawl visit in person; to receive them as a virtual Slow Crawl participant, please place an order of any size in our online shop, leave a note that you're doing the Slow Crawl in the comments section in the order form, and we'll put the codes in with your order.
Our 2023 Slow Crawl crochet pattern was designed by shop community member NormaJean Layer and is called Going to Gramma's House. This adorable cow-head cushion and matching nap blanket are worked in Berroco Vintage Chunky. They're sized for the child in your life, but if you need an adult-sized version, we support you in that, too!
Our 2023 Slow Crawl crochet pattern was designed by shop owner Lindsey Spoor and is called Pop Goes the Teasel. It's an adult-sized beanie with panels of textured teasel plants that grow around the circumference of the hat. We designed it using a very local yarn - Abundant Earth Fiber's Coopworth Sport/DK. This yarn was grown and milled on Whidbey Island, so you don't get much more "farm-to-fiber" than that! If you don't like the natural ecru color, grab a packet of Lydia and Alan's Wool Tinctures and dye your yarn and/or finished hat your favorite color.
