Our 2022 Tour Patterns
Meet our 2022 patterns: Cloudberry by Karen Whooley (crochet) and Fishway by Lindsey Spoor (knit)!
Cloudberry features a lovely, lacy stitch pattern that is reminiscent of one of the many types of berries native to the Pacific Northwest. It's available in the 2-skein wrap version (shown above) and a 1-skein scarf version. Our featured yarn for Cloudberry is Juniper Moon Farms Moonshine Fine, a sumptuous blend of baby alpaca, wool, recycled nylon, and silk.
Fishway is a lightweight infinity scarf that is a perfect project for learning to do mosaic knitting - it was inspired by a trip to Bonneville Dam and a visit to the fish ladder viewing room. Our featured yarn is Kelbourne Woolens Mojave; we paired it with Berroco Meraki for our sample to create a contrast in textures, but you could use two colors of Mojave, or even work through some of your own stash!
These patterns are free just for visiting Stilly River Yarns during the Tour; if you place an online order of any size during the Tour dates - even if you don't purchase the featured yarns! - we'll toss those codes in for you as well.
How do I get my free patterns?
As in 2021, we're encouraging visitors to make use of digital patterns to lessen our impact on the environment through printed materials. You will receive a sticker in your passport that will list a unique, single-use pattern code for you to use to obtain the pattern through Ravelry.
If you do not use or cannot access Ravelry, we will have a limited number of printed copies available; you can also email us with your code and we will make alternate arrangements.
Please note: All pattern codes expire at 11:59 PM Pacific time on Sunday, May 22, 2022.
Health and safety guidelines during Tour
The following health and safety measures are in effect at the shop during the 2022 LYS Tour to protect our community, our shop employees/volunteers, and our shop family members who cannot yet be vaccinated. We thank you in advance for your cooperation, patience, and understanding.
Our stations for patterns, passport stamps, and daily drawings will be located outside on the lawn.
Regardless of vaccination status, anyone entering the shop must wear a mask over their nose and mouth and wash their hands with soap and water in the shop restroom prior to entering the sales area.
If you do not have a mask, we will provide you with one before you enter the shop.
If you do not wish to wear a mask, you may purchase items through our online shop and have us hold them for porch pickup; alternately, you can call or email us with your order, and we can take payment over the phone and prepare your order for pickup. We regret that we will not have sufficient staffing to meet you on the porch for sales assistance during the Tour.
Please observe physical distancing guidelines (6 feet / 2 meters) between your group and other customers.
Parking / detailed directions
Stilly River Yarns is located on the corner of 271st St. NW and 99th Ave NW in downtown Stanwood; the little olive green bungalow with the gorgeous garden is us! We're about halfway between the Stanwood Library and the Stanwood-Camano Thrift Store / Food Bank. Come around to the front of the house with the hanging baskets and the big, shady front porch to visit the shop!
We have excellent parking options at and around the shop. There are two parking lots on the east and west sides of the building, and there is ample street parking just west of the shop. There's a dedicated accessible parking spot with a ramp up to the front door in the west lot that we share with Krista's PetSpaw. The yellow cars on the image below mark possible parking spots; the blue arrow marks the accessible parking spot; the red pin marks the shop itself. Please note that one of the spots in the east parking lot is reserved for our neighbors in the apartment behind the shop!
Detailed directions: If you’re coming into Stanwood via I-5/SR 532, you’ll find us by going west on SR 532; turn right at the light at 102nd Ave NW, and then turn right at 271st St. NW/Pearson St (the Stanwood-Camano Food Bank/Thrift Store will be on the corner on your left). Go about two blocks, and we’re on the left at the corner of 271st and 99th. If you’re coming in on Pioneer Highway (the back way from Conway/La Conner), go about 5 miles south on Pioneer, and you’ll see a railroad crossing on the right – turn right and cross the railroad tracks, and you’re on Old Pacific Highway. Take Old Pacific Highway south for 1.5 miles – you’ll cross another set of railroad tracks and start to come through town. About 3 blocks through town, you’ll see 271st St. NW/Pearson Street as your cross street (a gravel parking lot will be ahead on the left, and the Stanwood-Camano Food Bank/Thrift Shop will be ahead on the right). Turn left on 271st/Pearson, and go about two blocks – we’re on the left at the corner of 271st and 99th.
