I recently sent out our Winter 2020 yarn subscription boxes for Stash Yarn Club and wanted to share with you all the yarny goodness we stuffed inside them.
If you don’t know, Stash Yarn Club is my seasonal knit and crochet subscription box. We send out a box only 4 times a year in the Winter, Spring, Summer, and Fall.
In each box you get 3 skeins of hand-dyed yarn, a knit and crochet pattern, a few little goodies we think you’ll love, a hand-stamped project bag and a free download of our quarterly mini-mag Stash & Stitch.
Pre-orders for Spring Boxes are on sale now! These will ship in March. There are limited spots available and the only way to guarantee a spot for future boxes is to sign up for a subscription.
I can’t give away details on what will be included in our Spring Boxes but I can tell you that the yarn will be speckled!!
Winter 2020 Stash Yarn Club
Alright, let’s open up a winter box.
First, we have this gorgeous semi-solid 100% Superwash Merino Dk weight yarn, dyed by Amy from Summit Rd Fibers. Each season we pick two different color combinations. For winter we picked this neutral light gray called “Keep it Simple” and paired it with either this peachy/coral pink called Savannah or this steely blue called “The Sky has Never Fallen”
If you want to see more of Amy’s lovely yarns, check her shop out here.
There is also a cotton drawstring project bag. One of these comes in each seasonal box. I carve the stamps and print the bags myself. This season there were a few different geometric designs, a yarn ball and a sheep. I can’t wait until you see what I have up my sleeve for spring.
Goodies in this box included a lovely hand-carved shawl stick from WoodenItBeLovelyTx, some handmade lip balm (this stuff is amazing!!) from Rock Bottom Soap Co and some little Mitten Stitch Markers made by Katrinkles.

The Featured Knit and Crochet Patterns
The Apricity Shawl is a center-out triangle-shaped shawl that features a lace detail down the spine and sections of simple texture. This was actually my very first knitting pattern!! Exciting right! Apricity is the name given to the warmth of the winter sun. I thought it was a fitting name for this shawl because of the warm peachy color and the fact that a shawl keeps you nice and warm.
The Hibernaculum Shawl is also a center-out triangle shaped shawl. This features simple double crochet ribbing broken up by a section of mesh stitch. This is one of those designs that practically wrote itself once I got going. I just had to hold on an let my hook work its magic. A hibernaculum is what the winter home of a hibernating animal is called. You’ll want to hibernate in this cozy shawl all winter.
Last but not least is our new digital mini-mag, Stash & Stitch! I had so much fun putting this together. It includes both patterns from the winter box an interview with Amy from Summit Rd Fibers, some alternate pattern recommendations, and a few other fun little articles. This mini-mag is an exclusive freebie for all Stash Yarn Club subscribers.
