Just inside the front cover, the new table of contents will help you find your way through the catalog. But the most prominent change you’ve probably noticed is that we’ve shortened product descriptions, especially yarn descriptions, in order to display garment photos as large as we possibly can. But don’t fret—full yarn descriptions, including fabric type and suggested uses, can still be found on our website. All the essential information—fiber content, gauge, yardage and care—is still listed in the catalog along with a brief description of the yarn.
For any booklets which include multiple patterns, the description in the catalog indicates the total number of patterns. And, as always, you can see some or all of the additional patterns on our website.
The knit and crochet library pages are also a little different. Descriptions have been shortened, and for most of the books we’re only showing front covers. This allows us to choose a couple of books to highlight by showing larger photos for several projects. As with the pattern booklets, you’ll find additional project photos and more detailed descriptions on our website for most of the books.
Our tools of the trade section has undergone a makeover as well. We have grouped all the photos together in the top half of the page with letters matching up to the descriptions below. For some items, we’ve included additional information in the description on our website, where applicable.
Remember, there’s much more to see than we’re able to show within the pages of our catalog. We always have a lot more yarns, patterns, books and tools available on our website. We usually carry several different patterns (sometimes dozens!) for each yarn, but typically only have room to show one or two patterns per yarn in our catalog, so be sure to check our website for additional pattern suggestions if you see a yarn you like. Simply type the yarn name in the search box at the top of any page on our website to see all the patterns using that yarn.
We welcome your feedback, whether there’s something you like about the updated catalog design, or something you think would make it better.
