Learn how-to knit a double seed cowl and effin scarf in #ShopShowcase with Loops A Yarn Store in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
How did you get started?
I had an ad agency with my husband but I also loved to knit...and when I would walk into yarn stores, they all felt so old-fashioned. It was hard to find anything that I really wanted to make, and hard to get good service. I wrote a business plan for an on-trend, modern yarn store, but couldn't get a lease deal for a couple of years. So I made a cashmere scarf for the owner of the shopping center, and got the deal! Loops has been open for more than a decade now, and we're know for on-trend, effortless, original designs and a huge yarn selection, from affordable to luxury. Our Loops Troops are known around the world for their super-friendly, knowledgeable service. LoopsLove.com is where people go to be inspired by carefully curated projects in the best yarns. And our LoopsClub ships on-trend, effortless projects around the world each month!
