Knitting - The Card Game is oozing with fun knitting terminology, beautiful photos from fiber artists and game mechanics that mirror knit life.
Play this with your non-knitter friends and family to give them a peek into your fiber-y world or play with other knitters and meta game while knitting on patterns irl that are also in the game to earn extra points.
Ages 10 and up | 2-4 players | 30-40 min
Earn points with every Finished Object: stash the right yarn for a pattern, cast-on, knit and finally place your FOs on your blocking mat. Gather secret points and play action cards that speed up your projects or slow down your opponent with cards from the Community deck.
Immerse yourself in the beautiful world of fiber art with indie dyed yarn and patterns from indie designers. The yarn is real. The patterns are real. The actual knitting is implied.

Risks and challenges
This is my very first game. I've been working as a fiber artist for 11 years and it will always be my first love, but I've fallen hard for game design. Asking backers to put their trust in this first game will be my biggest challenge.
This edition is just the beginning. I have plans to work directly with fiber artists to create custom expansion packs and collectors cards that will work seamlessly with the base game, but before I can get there I need to get the first edition off the ground.
I'm planning on packaging this game in a box with room for extra cards to be added in the future. There are so many talented and fantastic fiber artists out there and I'm so excited to be able use this collaboration to celebrate our amazing, diverse, generous and artistic maker community.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
