Yarn Quest 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!
Storied Yarns 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.

Huge thanks to everyone who is supporting this campaign, especially the yarn companies who have generously supported Yarn Quest!
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.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
