We often receive requests for tutorials on the techniques we use in our projects, especially from our non-Brisbane customers.

On our blog we already have a couple of handy tips and tricks, including how to crochet a basic Granny Square, a Short Row Tutorial and an I-Cord Bind Off.

Last week I shared with you an African Flower Blanket that I had recently finished and we received lots of wonderful feedback plus plenty of questions about how I join my flowers.

I have just added a new tutorial to our blog that will hopefully help all of our happy hexagon and flower crocheters!

Joining Hexagons or African Flowers ‘as you go’


If there is a tutorial you would like to see on our blog please let us know and we will see what we can do.

With winter drawing ever closer,
we have decided to
extend our Sunday trading hours from the beginning of April.

You’ll now be able to visit us between 10am and 4pm throughout the winter months,
starting from
Sunday April 6th.

Ball Winders & Swifts

Our Royal Ball Winders and Metal Umbrealla Swifts would have to be one of our most popular tools in store.

With so many of our most delicious yarns coming skeined, they are worth their weight in gold and continue to fly out the door.

A new shipment has arrived this week and won’t last long I’m sure!


New stock from Addi has hit our shelves this week. Our full range of fixed circular needles (ranging from 30cm – 100cm in length), plus our Addi Click Sets,cable sets & tips are back in stock.



This weekend is going to be a busy one with a full class schedule over both Saturday & Sunday!

We have three classes on Saturday, starting with our regular Saturday Tech Support Session in the morning.

During the afternoon we have the first of our Double Knitting Workshops plus our keen Learn To Knit students are returning for Week 2.

Continuing with the Learn To courses, Sunday will see our Learn To Crochet students back with their homework complete and ready to tackle Week 2.

This will take us through to the end of March and into April where we see our monthly Learn To Courses take a pause due to the Easter Break.

But don’t fear! We will be here with our Techical Support Sessions and we are busy planning lots of exciting classes, workshops & courses from the end of April and into May & June.

The first workshop to launch after Easter will be a great introduction to Top Down Raglan knitting with our amazing Derrin – ideal if you would like to tackle your first garment but are not sure where to start.

The wonderful Hannah Fettig has given us persmission to teach her super cute Cradle Cardigan at the workshop.

Top Down Raglan Workshop

Sunday 27th April and Sunday 11th May
11:30am – 2:30pm

$90 per person plus supplies

Please note: this is an advanced beginner course and requires good basic knowledge of knitting.

Over the next couple of weeks we will finalise our May & June schedule and release it via our Friday newsletter.

Bookings and deposits are essential for all of our classes.

On the Needles at Tangled Yarns

The lovely Maureen was immediately taken with one of our newsletter pattern suggestions from a couple of newsletters ago. A little stash diving later and she has come up with two amazing versions of With A Brim by Kelly Brooker.

Maureen has used a combination of our Noro Kureyon and Cascade 220 Worsted to create these colourful winter toppers.


Derrin has had her needles clicking and finished this adorable tiny baby cardi, Cradle Cardigan by Hannah Fettig.


Extended Sunday Trading Hours
Don’t forget – from Sunday April 6th we will have extended Sunday trading hours!

You will be able to enjoy all things Tangled Yarns from 10am – 4pm all winter.

Inspiring your passion

  1. Thanks for the helpful tutorial. I would really appreciate some help with joining the squares in jenny kings’ marigold pattern. I’ve got the squares worked out. It’s joining them that confuses me. Yours in yarn, Sue-Anne
