Here’s how it works:

As a new or established knitter, you can pick up a free NEW KNIT KIT from a participating Local Yarn Shop (LYS).

Established knitters can use this kit to teach someone how to knit on November 10th! By pairing a new knitter with a source of help, they will be more likely to finish the project and develop their skills further.  

Be sure to share your experience via social media by tagging @10000NewKnitters and using #10000NewKnitters in your posts!

Future knitters (newbies) can visit a participating LYS to pick up their free kit on November 10th and receive help from the staff, or members of the knitting community.

Each kit comes with a ball of Special Edition Sueño Worsted in Natural, a pair of US8 (5mm) addi Linos straight needles and a pattern to create beginner-friendly fingerless mitts.
