The July 2020 Knitcrate came a bit later than expected but as my husband said, better crate than never. The purple tonal yarn that came in the July 2020 Knitcrate is absolutely gorgeous and worth the wait. Keep reading to see my review and grab your exclusive coupon code to save on Knitcrate.
Pin this for Later Save
I was so excited to find out that this month’s yarn was 100% organic pima cotton. I love pima cotton yarns and the tonal purple colour on this yarn is gorgeous! I have to hide it from my daughter or else she’s going to want it for her.
If you haven’t tried Knitcrate before, it’s a monthly subscription service that sends you hand-dyed yarns, a pattern book (1 crochet pattern, 1 knitting pattern) using those yarns and a little extra something fun. This month’s little extra was a 6.0mm tunisian crochet hook. Since I am learning to do tunisian crochet, I was super excited to see this. There was also an added bonus pattern using this yarn and the tunisian crochet hook so I may give that one a whirl.

The July 2020 Knitcrate was done in collaboration with Michelle Costa of Stitch & Hustle and the yarn selection was awesome. As I said about, it’s a 100% organic pima cotton. The yarn, is a DK weight and each 100g hank (there were two in the box) has 266 yards/242 m of yarn. It’s machine washable but needs to be lain flat to dry. The yarn colour has wonderful depth and it is dreamy and soft.

The patterns in the book this month are all shawls. There is a knit shawl, a crochet shawl and a bonus pattern for a tunisian crochet shawl. I’m not personally a big shawl person but I’m personally tempted to make the tunisian shawl to test my new tunisian skills and I’ll possibly gift it to a family member that would put it to good use.
