Another week packed with colour, customers, projects & presents!
We have had such a lovely time meeting so many family members and friends.

Lots of lovely Tangled Yarns goodies have been lovingly selected and our Gift Vouchers are flying out the door! Don’t forget we can also email our Vouchers in case you have left it a little too late.

With only 11 more sleeps until Christmas, please keep in mind shipping times.

Within Australia, we deliver all our orders via the Australia Post. As always, if orders are received before 2pm QLD time on a business day, it will be sent that day.

We aim to have your orders to you as quickly as possible but if you are waiting on something to go under the tree please consider selecting our Express Shipping option.

Interweave Crochet

Looking for a holiday read??

The latest issue of Interweave Crochet has just hit the store.


Find dynamic styles as well as timeless classics in the Winter 2012/13 issue of Interweave Crochet.

Art Nouveau gets a twist with stylish crochet patterns inspired by Downton Abbey. Winter whites go ethereal in lightweight yarns for a bit of layering warmth.

The Essential Pullover presents three different silhouettes, one just right for you.

Rather have a cardi? Linda Permann shows you how to convert a pullover to a cardigan and vice versa.

Plus, we’ve got great crochet sweaters for guys and the only crochet mitten pattern you’ll ever need.


Interweave Spin Off

New from Interweave Press – Spin Off Winter 2012/13!


In this issue, we’re looking at natural fibre. We take a look at wild silk.

We explore many facets of wool: Comparing American Wensleydale to British Wensleydale, looking at sustaining sheep ranching in Northern Wyoming, and ensuring the quality of wool available to spinners with the Canterbury Prize Wool Group.

You will learn the best direction to spin for the way you knit, how to match millspun yarn, how to clean fleeces with good bacteria, and how to use a blending board for artistic results.

Find patterns for a brioche cardigan and an everyday shirt, as well as a fun collar for crisp days and a magical child’s cape for the holidays.


I was so excited to receive this amazing parcel of buttons today and couldn’t wait to share it with you!!

We have heaps of new buttons to add to our collection, including new wooden buttons, sheep buttons, coconut buttons and a whole new range of fimo buttons!!!

We have been inundated with enquiries about our classes for 2013, we love that so many of you can’t wait to come back and expand your skill plus all of the new eager students with fingers itching to start!

In addition to our immensely popular Technical Support,Learn to Knit & Learn to Crochet we have started the year off with a couple of new classes.

Crochet / Felted Hexagons

One of my favourite little gifts is adapted from Lucy’s How-To Hexagon motif – sweet little felted coasters from our Noro Kureyon.



One ball yields between five and six coasters, depending on your gauge making a perfect set to give.
(although they are so useful, you might need to make a few for yourself too!)

This class will help you to master the hexagon motif and to take the mystery out of felted objects.

Please note, you need to have basic crochet skills to attend this course.

Class Cost

$45 per person plus supplies
(includes one ball of Noro Kureyon)


5.00mm crochet hook
darning needle


When Derrin was working on this beautiful Entrelac Blanket last year it caused a great deal of buzz…and how could it not! It is simply stunning!!

Entrelac, like many knitting techniques looks much trickier than it actually is.


During this two hour class you will learn how to knit Entrelac and find out all the tips, hints and tricks.

You will create a small sampler piece that you can turn into a cushion cover, a small pouch
(perhaps for an iPad) or continue knitting to make a wonderful scarf.
(Depending on the number of stitches you cast on)

Please note, you need to have basic knitting skills to attend this course.

Class cost

$30 per person plus supplies


Our Noro yarns were just made for Entrelac…
You will need to select your needle size according to the weight of Noro you choose

We have also added two Learn to Knit Socks courses to the calendar – one series of Cuff Down and one series of Toe Up plus Anita’s fantastic Continental Knitting course!

You can find our full class calendar on our website or click

Bookings and deposits are essential for all of our classes.

Please phone the store on 07 3666 0276 or email us tangled@tangledyarns.com.au if you have any further questions on our classes or to book in!
