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.
Brought to you by the creative minds of award-winning crochet designer Laurinda Reddig and historical fiction author C. Jane Reid...
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. Join the Adventure!
What Can You Expect In a Ficstitches Yarns Kit ?
Each Quarterly Crochet Kit Includes:
- New Crochet Pattern from designer Laurinda Reddig of ReCrochetions, inspired by the story. Patterns are generally advanced beginner in difficulty with clearly written and tech edited instructions, including stitch diagrams and/or tutorials as needed for any more advanced techniques.
- Original Fictional Story from author C. Jane Reid – Part One of a new 2-part Novel, tying the kit together.
- Handmade Gift and/or Tool to use with the kit project.
- Hand-Dyed Yarn from various indie dyers, exploring different yarn weights and luxury fibers with enough yarn to complete the kit project.
- Muslin Project Bag, hand-stamped and dyed, and filled with all these kit goodies.

Our Fall 2019 Kit Club Will Include:
The First Half of Unraveling: A Fence Between by author C. Jane Reid.
Nine years have passed since the events in the St. Louis Hooverville, and Ned and her family have moved to California. The Great Depression might be over, but a new, even deadlier event has unfolded – World War II. With the Al off fighting with the Navy in the Pacific, it’s up to Ned to keep the family going. What she doesn’t see coming, however, is to see Americans turning on one another because of fear. When her neighbors come under that attack, Ned will give it her all to defend not only her friends but her ideals.
Ned grew up with the stories of crocheting for the war effort during WWI. Now she’s crocheting for a new war effort, and she’ll do what it takes to provide for the men serving, especially the man she’s come to love, inspiring Laurinda Reddig‘s design.
This kit features one and a half skeins (approx. 360 yards) of a Single Ply DK Weight 100% Superwash Merino Yarn from In the Deep Hue Sea. Choose between Princess Petunia (cool) and Yolanda Yolk (warm), both colors named for the pet chickens that Ned keeps because even in a time of fear and uncertainty, everyone can use a touch of whimsy.
Ned has to be creative when it comes to reaching out to help those less fortunate during the distrust on the Homefront, and she comes up with a clever way to do so.
