What is the NYC Yarn Crawl?

We're a three-day event where fiber lovers visit New York City's finest local yarn shops to celebrate our love of the fiber arts.  Oh, and also drool over the latest yarns and fibers; meet fellow knitters, crocheters, weavers, spinners and yarnistas; discover new patterns, tools and accessories; and of course win amazing prizes from our wonderful sponsors.


There is no charge to crawl, and there is no pre-registration necessary.  Just show up and visit the shops - plan your own route and make your own adventure!   


Our LYSs are in Manhattan and Brooklyn and are easy to get to - all you need are your friends, a MetroCard and the NYC Yarn Crawl map, and you're good to go! Visit the map page to see your digital and print options to help navigate your way around town.

Why do it?

Each NYC LYS has its own personality. The stores range from tiny knit and crochet jewels to stunning needlecraft meccas to out-of-the-way hidden treasures.  Many have exclusive yarns and accessories, and you'll discover something new at each one.


Visit your favorite LYSs  and check out new stores. During the crawl, ALL of our stores have special promotions and discounts on yarn and other goodies. It's a great time to get inspired, start a new project, find luscious new yarns, uncover new patterns and stock up on supplies.


Visit as many stores as you can -- sign up at each store to win one of their three raffle prizes.  Visit multiple stores in the Annual Scavenger Hunt and enter the drawing to win one of three grand prizes. Details are on our prizes page.
