We Love To Party.
Are you planning a wedding gift, a baby shower, or a gathering of old friends? We have plenty of ideas for knitted gifts and group projects - and we love to teach!

Ask us about scheduling a group class, communal knitting project, or other special event. We have plenty of inspiration, and we're all ears.


In compliance with public health recommendations, we have made the decision to close to store to shoppers for the time being. We will keep you posted and be open again as soon as we can!

However! We are taking phone orders and offering curb side pick up from 12-3. We are also shipping orders if you prefer and will take orders via email (hello@knitnewhaven.com), so just let us know what you'd like and include a phone number and we'll be in touch when we are in the store to get it out to you! If you aren't sure what you'd like, purchasing a gift certificate during this time will really help us out!

Follow us on Instagram and Facebook for the most immediate updates.

Thank you for your support and please take care of yourselves!


ps We aren't sure how long this will last, we are happy to take your KnitBucks for phone orders if they are expiring during this time!

Re-opening Tuesday May 26th

Temporary Store Hours: 12-5PM

We are looking forward to re-opening the store, but there are a few new rules we'll need to share with you. Our highest priority is to keep our customers and our small staff safe, so we hope you will help us!

Only 3 customers will be allowed in the store at one time. It's a small space and we'd like to be able to keep social distancing protocols.

Please wear a mask at all times in the store. We will also ask you to use hand sanitizer when you enter the shop.

In an effort to minimize contact we won't be winding yarn while customers wait. If you would like to leave your yarn, we're happy to wind for you!

No sitting and knitting at the table until further notice. All we can say is :(

If you prefer not to be in the store with other customers, we are happy to make you an appointment for private shopping between 11am-12pm before the store opens. We will be cleaning the high touch surfaces regularly through out the day. We ask that any customers who aren't feeling well to stay home. We'll be happy to take your order via phone for shipping if you prefer!

Thank you to all our wonderful customers!! We really appreciate your continued support during these difficult times.

Spring KAL

Kelbourne Woolens is hosting a knit-a-long and we've decided to join in! Together we will be knitting "Rift" by Jacqueline Ceislak in Mojave, and we thought the idea was SO good, we wanted to invite you all to join in too!

Mojave is a cotton and linen blend sport weight yarn that has a great feel in the hand, and it's become a new favorite summer yarn since we first got it last year. We'll be doubling to get the gauge we want for a sturdy enough tee that it won't need layering over another garment.

You can choose a solid color, or marl two colors together. No rules, anything goes!!

Not sure if cotton is your thing? No problem! You can still join in the KAL and we'll be posting our other favorite choices for yarn on Instagram and Facebook.

We love this pattern because not only does it look great on everyone, but its very customizable too! V-neck or scoop? Short sleeves or long sleeves? Want it a little more fitted? There are optional bust darts!

Cast on date: Friday May 22nd, 2020

We'll draw a winner on June 22nd, so make sure you keep posting to win!

Prize: Knitter's Pride Knit and Purr Interchangeable Needle Set

Entry requirements: You must have purchased your yarn at Knit New Haven to be eligible for the prize. Please post to Facebook or Instagram and tag us! (you do not need to finish your sweater to be eligible for the prize or cast on by Friday May 22nd). One entry per post, use #KNHriftKAL to make sure we see you!

New Yarn!!!

Spincycle and Spun Right Round

So we bringing Stitches United to you by offering our special Stitches Show Kits at the store instead! We have a large new order from Spincycle of "Dyed in the Wool". We even have the kit of special edition colors for the original "The Shift" cowl by Andrea Mowry plus other kit options. Or choose your own colors and project, there are so many amazing choices.
