Envision the History of Crochet through Fiction and Design…
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… but each one is only available for one month.
Journey with the Ficstitches Yarns Crochet Kit Club on an adventure back to the days of old...
Each kit offers a brand new fictional story and crochet pattern along with hand-dyed yarn and a handmade accessory, all bound together in a theme of romance, history, and crochet.

The Second Half of Unraveling: The Hooverville Happening by author C. Jane Reid.
With the help of her pals, Tommy and Al, Ned Pierson is deep into figuring out what happened to the leader of the Tin Can Gang. She’s also depending on the former soldiers of the Veterans Home for advice. As she investigates, though, the secret fact that she’s not Just Ned but a girl is becoming increasingly hard to keep. Add in the involvement of another local gang, and, shockingly, an old family rival and Ned will be lucky to come out of it unscathed. But it is the Great Depression and who won’t come out scarred in some ways? Ned’s about to find out.
The local Hooverville is a city within a city but without the ability to support itself. That’s where Ned and her family come in, taking much needed food and clothing, along with medical aid, to the displaced folks living in the shanty town. Ned and her mother, Josie, spend evenings crocheting items to bring a little cheer and warmth into their hard lives, and this special item is no different, and inspired Laurinda Reddig‘s design.
This kit features a gorgeous 500 yard “Fusion” from Cat Mountain Fiber Arts. Choose between the “Garnet” (warm) or “Cobalt” (cool). These Fusion skeins are a custom combination of 8 different worsted weight yarns in various fibers and textures. Ned is careful in her choice of yarn because there is only so much to be had. Collecting and unraveling worn, knit sweaters makes for a ready source, and dyeing them all together in one color like Cat Mountain does makes for interesting design possibilities. A little ingenuity goes a long ways, and Ned, and our dyer, are nothing if not clever at this special gift.
As always, we enclose a gift tied into the theme of the story. Keeping with the make-do and reuse attitude of the 1930s, we’ve included an accessory that will bring the crochet design from lovely to elegant. Made by our own Katherine Greer, this trinket is just the thing to hold it all together.
