About

Yarnia needs you! 

Grab your knitting needles and join your fellow Yarn Questers in the quest to save Yarnia!  

What is Yarn Quest?

Yarn Quest is one part knitting pattern, one part Role-Playing Game, and one part Choose Your Own Adventure. Each quest is a knitting pattern, and as the player leads their character through the quest they come across enemies to battle, choices to make, and items that all influence the patterns knitted on the project. 

That's what makes Yarn Quest so special - almost every project is unique. 

Want to see what past Yarn Quests have looked like? Check out the Yarn Quest collection on Ravelry!

Welcome to Yarnia is an introduction to Yarn Questing for those who have never played an RPG, and provides new patterns and play styles for those who have partaken in previous campaigns. The book will be a full color hardcover including tutorials, lore, patterns, and lots of artwork. There will be tutorials for how to play, along with tutorials for how to use the double knitting technique.

Don't like double knitting? Can't knit, but like to crochet? There are plenty of methods to join in the fun! Questers have done previous projects in colorwork knitting and Tunisian crochet. There's no limit to what you can do!

What are the patterns?

The most important part (beside the adventure) is the projects you'll be knitting! There are 3 patterns included in the book to start off the campaign and more that will be added depending on what stretch goals we hit. Pattern One is a Hat/Cowl combo, Pattern Two is an extra-large Cowl, and Pattern Three is a Scarf. Currently they all use worsted weight yarns, but there may be some variance in later patterns. 

Want to see what we're knitting? Here's a preview piece of the cowl from the first quest!

The Book - 
Glorious hardcover book. May receive some upgrades hidden in the stretch goals...

Hard Enamel Pins -  
Pins featuring the Yarn Dragon logo. A hidden upgrade awaits in the stretch goals.

Handmade Mugs from Pawley Studios - These babies hold 16-20 ounces of your favorite beverages and are made by hand at Pawley Studios. One the front is the Yarn Quest Yarn Dragon Logo and on the back is the slogan Knit 1 Roll 20. Shown above in Fires Within, Sweet Pea, and Starry Night. Mugs are microwave and dishwasher safe.

Limited Edition Mug from Pawley Studios - 
The same as the mugs above, but in with a color logo and a black background! Only 5 of these will be made available.

Bags from Erin Lane Bags -
Easily hold 2 skeins of yarn for all of your questing needs! Kickstarter Bag features a pattern of yarn dragons!

Feline Companion Art -
Your Feline Companion featured as a piece of art in the book! Backers may use a real life Feline Companion or roll one in game. Feline Companions may have any Character Class for their art. Art will be a combination of traditional and digital elements.

Feline Companion and Feline(?) Companion Art Doll-
Custom made art dolls with ball joint skeletons and resin-cast heads from original sculptures. All art dolls are made with faux fur and will be painted to best match your desired Feline or Feline(?). 

 Add-on Rewards can be added during the campaign and will also be available through Backerkit at the conclusion of the campaign.

 Further Stretch Goals will be revealed depending on funding.

Risks and challenges

The question of "What can go wrong?" is a lot like Murphy's Law - if it can go wrong, it will go wrong. Acts of nature, illness and injury, shipping issues, manufacturer change-overs, supply shortages... the list goes on. I have done all that I can in advance to prevent any of these issues from appearing, however, things do happen. I can't guarantee delivery dates, but I can strive to get things out by the deadlines I have set. What I can guarantee is that I'm going to do what it takes to deliver an awesome book with some pretty sweet patterns, and some cool swag to go with it.
