Makers’ League Details

This post includes the who, what and where of Makers’ League.


Who: Anyone who wants to join.
What: A project of the month club.
Where: Darn Knit Anyway – online and in store.


Rules of play. It’s easy!
1. We choose a project for the month.
2. You buy the yarn for the project from us.
3. The first project you purchase for the year gets you a Makers’ League canvas tote bag and patch. (think Girl Scout patches)


For every month you join in, you get another patch to attach to your Makers’ League tote!  Collect 5 or more and get a coupon for 20% off an entire day of shopping at DKA!  Here are a few cute patches that you’ll have the chance to attach to your bag!

A few other fun things to note.  We’ll be offering free project help during the month for Makers’ Leaguers (don’t think that’s a real word).  Our Maker’s League help will be Tuesday mornings from 10-noon and Tuesday nights from 6-8pm. But as always at Darn Knit Anyway, you are welcome to come anytime for help!


We have a limited quantity of patches. Only 50 per month. Patches aren’t available for purchase separately and you must buy the yarn for the projects from Darn Knit Anyway.


This is a pick and choose kind of program. You can choose to participate in all months of the year, or only 1.


Projects will be revealed once a month, but you’ll be able to purchase the projects throughout the year going forward.  So if you don’t get around to participating in February’s project now, but want to knit February’s project in May you sure can. You’ll be able to get the Maker’s League bag for whatever first project you purchase during 2106, you just won’t be guaranteed that month’s patch. Patches have a limited quantity available.
There is no additional cost to join Makers’ League, just the purchase of the required yarn.
Some months will be patterns designed by us and some will be patterns currently on Ravelry designed by other terrific people.


Join us in Makers’ League!  Our first project will be revealed next week and will be available for purchase February 1st!

    I am assuming there will be some crochet projects along the way?


  2. Kirsten says:

    Would love to but made a vow to myself that I wasn’t going to buy any more yarn this year! Great idea!!! Drat….

  3. Pam says:

    Will you be emailing the project announcement? For those of us who need to look up to see what day it is.

  4. Amy Folwick says:

    I tried making the same vow as Kirsten in 2014. Ask me how THAT went 😉

  5. Kara says:

    Will the projects be small projects (hats, cowls, scarves, etc.) or larger projects (sweaters)? Is there an average price each month’s project will cost?

  6. admin says:

    Yep Tom…there sure will:) We have a special crochet patch too!

  7. admin says:

    Yep, we’ll email the project announcement out next week, then again on the 1st so you have a heads up!

  8. admin says:

    Hi Kara! The projects will vary in size. Hats, shawls, mittens…there will be a sweater or two in the mix as well.
    The yarn for the first project could be as little as 22.00 (if you want acrylic)…or if you want to make the first project in wool it could be $36-50?
    Stay tuned:)

  9. Tom Michels says:

    YAY. Challenging myself with a Crochet Along. I am no pattern whisperer that’s for sure! Always up for a challenge and learn new things.

  10. Carolyn M says:

    Is there any other cost to join? Do we have to do a project every month?

  11. Kara says:

    Tom made me think of another question. When the pattern is a crochet pattern, will there also be a knitted pattern option? I have struggled to learn crochet and haven’t been able to get past a chain. Also, the only cost of participating is the cost of monthly projects we choose to participate in, correct?

  12. admin says:

    Hi Kara…If we do a crochet option for the month, there will be a knit option too. There won’t be a crochet option for every month however. And no additional cost to participate except supplies!

  13. admin says:

    Hi Carolyn! No cost to join other than the yarn, and maybe a pattern, for the month. and you can choose to do the project of the month or pass it up!

  14. Carol Reuter says:

    Does this differ from the 12in12 program?

  15. admin says:

    Hey Carol! We are not going to do the 12in12 program this year. Makers’ League is a brand new thing!

  16. Cheryl Toenjes says:

    Where do we register? Please sign me up.

  17. Erin says:

    Is this a join-from-afar kind of league?

  18. admin says:

    Hi Cheryl! There is no official “registering” necessary. Just check out the project when we reveal it next week, decide if you want to knit it then come in on or after Feb 1st to buy the yarn and you’ll get the bag and February’s patch. It’s a month to month thing. You might want to make one month and not want to make the next.

  19. admin says:

    Hi Erin!
    Yes! You’ll be able to see the February project on our website and decide if you want to make it. If so, there will be some prepackaged kits available on our website for you to order and we can ship to you!
    You’ll get the bag and patch too:)

  20. Chris says:

    What a creative and flexible idea! I’ll be watching for the first project…maybe there will be a baby project along the way…? 😉

  21. Kara says:


    I’d like to order the Quince yarn for the hat online but in a different combination than the kit offers. I’m not finding the Quince yarns online. Can we not order them through your online store?
