FREE Learn to knit - 10,000 New Knitters

skacel has challenged itself to teach 10,000 new knitters in one day – November 10th, 2018.  They are supplying local yarn shops with 10,000 FREE kits. Learn the the two most important stitches in knitting: the Knit and Purl stitches from your friends at Makers' Mercantile! All materials and instruction are free in this fun, one day event. 

Registration is required. Call our shop at 425-251-1239 to register.

note:  We also need additional knitters to help teach.  You can sign up to receive a free kit and we will match you up with a beginner to help.



Each mitt is made in one piece and then seamed to create the thumb hole.

The Special Edition HiKoo® Sueño Worsted yarn is already wound into a ball so new knitters can get right to work! Available in 'Natural' to make seeing your stitches easy; suitable for any gender! 

Using the color coded addi® Linos straight needles, learning the difference between the Right Side (outside of the fabric) and Wrong Side (inside of the fabric) is a breeze! 

As an added bonus, we've also included helpful instruction on how to read the ball band that comes on the yarn. This knowledge gives new knitters a great foundation in understanding 'knitters lingo'.  

Each kit comes with the following:

One ball of Special Edition Sueño Worsted in 'Natural'

One pair of US8 (5mm) addi Linos straight needles

Exclusive beginner-friendly fingerless mitt pattern

Bonus Instruction: How to Read a Ball Band

Note: One kit makes one pair of fingerless mitts.
