Over The Rainbow Yarn


We’re pleased to present our third annual Twelve Weeks of Christmas series!

Each year, we publish 12 original patterns, and we host 12 knit-alongs with knitting instruction every Saturday from October 3rd through December 19th. If you complete all 12 projects, then you’ll have 12 hand-knit gifts to give to your friends and family by Christmas time!

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

  1. It must be possible to knit 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. 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 for purchase, as well as a complete collection of all 12 patterns for a discounted price. See our Ravelry shop here:

For those who live away, we’d also be delighted to offer the 12 Weeks patterns for free with the purchase of the recommended yarn – just call us at (207)594-6060 and we’ll ship to you. In conjunction with the knit-alongs at the shop, we are hosting a knit-along on where you can post comments and photos of your work! If you’re on Facebook, you can also post your comments+photos to our Facebook page.
