This KnitCrate box was worth the wait! It wasn’t the softest yarn I’ve received from KnitCrate, but the color was gorgeous and matched my green eyes perfectly. For $24.99, we received 2 skeins of premium yarn, an online pattern booklet with 2 patterns, and sew-on gift tags for a retail value of $56 for just the yarn. KnitCrate just announced a price increase to $37.94 ($29.99 + $7.95 shipping), but even then you’re paying almost $20 less than retail for the two skeins of yarn, while also getting the patterns and tape measure. I think this is a really good value for what you receive, since high-end, premium yarn is usually around $25-$35 per skein in a local yarn store, and most patterns on Ravelry are $5-$10 each.
