Ficstitches Yarns Kit Club is a quarterly kit club specially designed for crocheters that combines your two favorite hobbies, Crocheting and Reading! So much more than a yarn club, each element of these kits is a mysterious delight…

Have you ever dreamt of traveling to a time long past? Of sitting before the hearth fire listening to stories while you crochet from the homespun yarn in the basket at your feet? Beyond your door, the night spreads across the farmyard into the gloomy forest where tree boughs shiver in the wind and creatures of old lurk. Your cabin is safe and warm, but outside, unknown dangers and unimagined adventures await.

If you are daring, you can set aside your hook, pull on your shawl, and open the door to explore this strange new land.

Join the Adventure . . .

Journey with the Ficstitches Yarns Crochet Kit Club on an adventure back to those days of old. Each kit offers a fictional story and crochet pattern along with hand-dyed yarn and a handmade accessory, all bound together in a theme of romance, history, and a touch of the supernatural.


What Can You Expect In a Ficstitches Yarns Kit ?

Each Quarterly Crochet Kit ($65.00+Shipping) Will Include:

  • Choose St. Bart’s or Urchin

    Accessory Pattern from crochet designer Laurinda Reddig of ReCrochetions. Instructions are clearly written, tech edited, and include stitch diagrams or tutorials for any more advanced techniques (for left or right handers).

  • Handmade Gift and/or Tool to use with the kit project.

The Second Half of Unraveling: the Boatman’s Daughter by author C. Jane Reid. Carolina and Bradley have become closer in the weeks after Carolina’s arrival in Metamora, Indiana. Carolina and Nan have also formed a tenuous friendship over their shared interests in crochet. But unforeseen events drive a wedge between the three that Carolina fears she’ll never remove. And a storm is brewing .  .  Remember to add on Part One of the Story if you missed our Spring Kit, so you get to read the entire story.

As Nan’s skill in crochet grows, so does her creativity. Captivated by some of Carolina’s traditional designs, using yarn repurposed from one of her Pa’s old knit sweaters, Nan creates her own version as something to be worn rather than something intended to adorn the home. In a modernized interpretation, Laurinda has recaptured Nan’s creation in a new crochet design to delight you.

This kit features Cormo Fingering Weight Yarn from Sincere Sheep in California’s Napa Valley. Sincere Sheep specializes in dyeing with natural dyes. In fact, both colorways for this kit are dyed with Indigo using different processes to get very different tones. This 2-ply 100% Cormo wool yarn is sourced from 9 Mile Ranch in Kaycee, Wyoming, and spun in Buffalo, Wyoming. Like our last kit, the yarn is an entirely US made product, a perfect tie in with C. Jane’s stories of the early US included in the kits. Each kit will  include and extra large 700-yard skein of yarn in your choice of “St. Barts” (pale blue – cool) or “Urchin” (purple/burgandy – warm).  Note, colors vary more with natural dyes so final colors may differ.

Monica of Craftwich Creations returns to our kit with her newest handmade gift, which will be a useful complement to Laurinda’s crochet design.  As always, you will find references to the design and gift seamlessly tied in with the story.

  1. I found out about Ficstitches through Moogly’s site.
    I love the concept of reading for pleasure and crocheting for pleasure being combined.
    I’m very interested in the next available Deluxe kit.

    Your new fan!

    • You can actually sign up on our Mailing List at the top of the right-hand column! Just enter your email address and name, and you will be among the first to find out when the next kits are available. Thanks! Laurinda

  3. I just want to say how fabulous Laurinda was in contacting me with the problem I encountered and helping to resolve it! The problem was evidently with my bank card and not the website, so I know how to fix for future shipments. Super excited to receive my first kit next month!! Thank you so very much!

  4. Hello my dear Ficstitches team,
    I just placed my order for the next kit. I did want to order the book from the last kit that I missed, but the usual place for notes on paypal didn’t show in the window, so could you tell me how I can order it, after the fact? I love the kits, the yarns, the colors, the patterns, and the stories. I’ve been cutting back on my crocheting purchases because arthritis has taken a bite out of my crocheting, but I decided I have to keep trying. Your kits are so enjoyable! I love the whole presentation.
    Thanks again,
    Barb Worner

    • Hello Barb, Welcome back! I did notice that you had not added on Part One. But no worries. We plan to email anyone who didn’t get part 1 in the last kit and didn’t add it. We will send you a link to add on Part One soon!

  5. I have been loving the Ficstitches Yarns Kits and if you love crochet patterns, hand dyed yarn, stories that incorporate yarny stuff, and delightful accessories then you will too! Orders are almost done for the Summer 2016 kit but before we re out of time, I get to give one away!

  6. And then every kit also has beautiful hand dyed yarn from an indie dyer! The dyer changes from kit to kit, but you always get your pick of two featured colors. The Summer 2016 kit features your choice of Lush or Midnight Emerald!
