How did you get started?

Knit Purl was started in 2004 by Darcy Cameron. It's since grown to have a significant online presence, as well.

Where are you located?

We are nestled in a busy corner of downtown Portland, OR, right next to amazing food and shops.

Which products do you specialise in?

We specialize in yarn, with plenty for knitters, crocheters, and weavers.

Do you have a particular favorite product that you sell?

All of them! We're lucky to be the flagship store for many yarn companies and indie dyers, like Brooklyn Tweed, Alpha B, and Woolfolk. We also work with artisans for our hand-made bags, pouches, swifts, and yarn bowls.

What's on the stereo?

Where else should we visit in your area?

The food carts are great! We also love Canoe, Woonwinkel, Solabee, Alder & Co…. We have some amazing neighbors.

Do you host any workshops, classes or special events?

We have ongoing classes for beginner and intermediate knitters, on Sundays. Occasionally we have classes on crochet. We also host workshops for intermediate and advanced knitters.

Is there anything else you'd like us to know?

We have a lot of fun stuff in the works! A few of our staff design patterns for the store, and we have some upcoming ones that are really great. Sign up for our weekly newsletter at www.knit-purl.com to learn more.
