Stay tuned for the 2024 trail pattern info!

2023: We are so excited to include a printed MYSTERY KNIT PATTERN designed exclusively for this year's trail by Houston's very own local pattern designer, Ester Puente, with Industrial Whimsy! Her designs are beautiful and achievable by knitter's of varying experience. She has been designing Yarn Trail exclusive patterns since inception for Park Avenue Yarns. We are so excited to expand her exclusive patterns to the entire yarn trail this year!

The mystery pattern will be divided into clues that each yarn trail goer will pick up for FREE at each shop they visit! *Every shop will have printed copies of only 1 of the 10 clues. This will hopefully encourage each trail goer to visit every shop along the trail! We love to hold the trail over 10 days and 2 full weekends to allow for ample time to reach each store, and it will be so fun to pick up each of the 10 clues for this year's exclusive pattern!

*If for some reason you are not able to visit every shop, you will have an incomplete pattern. However, it is designed in a way to allow for you to make a version that excludes a portion or 2, but it will be smaller. Or you will be able to repeat some of the clues you did pick up. **There is not an electronic option for these FREE printed pattern clues included with your visit to each shop. Since this is designed to be an incintive to complete the trail, a chance to collect the complete printed pattern with all 9 clues is an added benefit for those who do visit every store! We always want to find ways to encourage completion of the trail and to thank and reward those who do!

**The electronic version of this exclusive pattern as a whole will be made available for purchase through Industrial Whimsy after 3 months from the date of the trail.
