Over The Rainbow Yarn


This Christmas season, we’re publishing 12 original patterns for knitters and hosting 12 knit-alongs with free instruction every Saturday from September 30 through December 16. If you complete all 12 projects, then you’ll have 12 hand-made gifts to give to your friends and family by Christmas time! Patterns will be released the Wednesday prior to the knit-along and shared in our weekly Pot O’ Gold e-newsletter, on Facebook, and on this event page.

We design our 12 Weeks of Christmas projects with three criteria in mind:

  1. It must be possible to finish within one week with moderate diligence.
  2. Materials must cost $25 or less.
  3. It will make a good gift for someone you know.

Patterns are free with the purchase of the recommended yarn for the duration of the season. Knitting instruction is free with attendance at any of our Saturday morning knit-alongs.

We will also be posting all 12 patterns in our shop on Ravelry.com for purchase on the Saturday of each knit-along. See our Ravelry shop here: http://www.ravelry.com/stores/over-the-rainbow-yarn-design/

For those who live away, if you purchase the recommended yarn from our online store at shopovertherainbowyarn.com and include a comment with the 12 Weeks pattern you’d like us to include when you place your order, we’d be glad to send it along with your yarn. We’d love to see photos and comments on our Ravelry pattern pages! If you’re on Facebook, you can also post your comments+photos to our Facebook page.

No need to register in advance. All levels of experience are always welcome!

  1. IF I am reading this email correctly, we won’t know about the remaining projects until the Wednesday before they happen.

    Many of us are over programmed in our lives and have to really Plan things.

    Is it possible to at least see a list of the projects for the remaining weeks so we can plan ahead?
    Or did I miss something here and I am not seeing them but they really Are here.

    Thanks, Mollie

    • Good news, Mollie! We’ve decided to publish a complete schedule with photographs on this event page and in print form at the shop in the next day or two! -Lauren

    • No, Elaine. It’s a Knit Along, so you can just show up. We’re looking forward to seeing you. Mim

  2. Happy Fall!!
    This is Kelly from Cochrane AB Canada and I really wish you would just pick up and move your store right beside me :)!!
    I love the HeadBand Hat! I will be waiting with baited breath for the yarn requirements, order the yarn from you and create that adorable hat!
    Thank you

  3. Like others I live too far away to join in knitting with you. I would be interested in a couple of patterns so how do I order them? Thanks for your inspirations!

  4. Where’s the mittenscarf pattern? I’ve been waiting for it for weeks and it’s not on Ravelry yet.
