Virtual Rose City Yarn Crawl
March 4 – March 14

The 2021 Rose City Yarn Crawl is going virtual for everyone’s safety. This means that you can participate in the Crawl without ever leaving your house!

All of the elements you love about the Crawl are moving online this year. Instead of visiting each shop in person, you have the option of shopping from their online store. Read on for more information about each aspect of the Crawl.

Dates & Times

This year’s Crawl has already been extended to 11 days, and now you can participate 24 hours a day. If you still want to visit shops in person, be sure to check their open hours on their shop website or on the Crawl website.

During the Crawl, Northwest Wools will be open Thursdays through Sundays, 10:00 am to 5:00 pm.

Please note: Due to staff limitations, Northwest Wools will be closed Monday, March 8th, through Wednesday, March 10th. In the event the pandemic worsens, this plan is subject to change.

Northwest Wools Shop Prizes

When you make a purchase from our shop, either online or in person, you’ll have the opportunity to give us your email address. All of these email addresses will be entered to win one of our fabulous shop prizes, including Northwest Wools gift certificates, our Featured Shop Pattern kits, and great, big bags full of yarn!

Northwest Wools Featured Shop Patterns

Just as in years past, we’ll have a Featured Knit Pattern, a Featured Crochet Pattern and a Featured Weaving Pattern! When you buy something from either our Online Store or our Brick & Mortar Shop during the 11 days of the Yarn Crawl, you’ll receive a free Ravelry download code for our Featured Knit and Crochet Patterns. For you Weavers wanting the “free with purchase” Featured Weaving Pattern, just ask for a copy when you make your purchase!

Mystery Alongs

The Mystery Knit Along and Mystery Crochet Along have already begun and are already virtual. At Northwest Wools we will showcase our samples of the Mystery Knit and Crochet Alongs in our Shop and on our social media once the last clues go out. We know some of you prefer to “wait and see” before you jump in, so be sure and check ours out! We will also have recommended Mystery Along Yarn Kits still available during the Crawl.

But we know what everyone really looks forward to about the Mystery Alongs: showing them off! We’ve figured out a way for this to go virtual, too!

Please share your Mystery Along by tagging @RoseCityYarnCrawl on Instagram and Facebook, or posting in the Rose City Yarn Crawl Ravelry group. Everyone who tags or posts will be entered to win special Mystery Along prizes donated by Northwest Wools and Starlight Knitting Society. But even better – you will get to see and share all the many colors and versions of the 2021 Mystery Alongs. That’s always our favorite part of the Yarn Crawl!

Yarn Crawl SwagThis year’s Yarn Crawl Bag is a cute and handy backpack.

This year’s Yarn Crawl Bag is a cute and handy backpack. Even if you aren’t Crawling in person this year, it’s a great “hands free” Project Bag to have. It’s also a wonderful way to support the Rose City Yarn Crawl, so we can continue to provide this Event for you each year.

If you pre-ordered a Yarn Crawl Backpack and designated Northwest Wools as your pick-up location, you can pick it up during our open hours during the Crawl or even after it. We are also happy to provide curbside pick-up or local delivery, if you are within five miles of the shop. If you need to arrange for shipping, please email us at

We will have a limited number of these darling backpack project bags for sale during the Rose City Yarn Crawl, in case you didn’t pre-order yours. You can purchase them during the Crawl at our  Brick & Mortar Shop or on our Online Store.


We are so grateful for the support you’ve given us throughout this pandemic time. While we will miss seeing all of you in person, we’re happy that everyone has the opportunity to participate safely in this year’s Crawl.
