The N Club FAQ
What does N stand for?
Hmmmm... Nelkin, New, Novel, and it comes after M!
What are we knitting?
Ha! Wouldn't you like to know????? Seriously, that is part of the mystery! This year's N Club will have three patterns that are exclusive to the club. Every pattern will be using 400 or more yards of yummy fingering, light fingering or lace yarn. You can see patterns I designed for the last 4 N Club's here
, and the ones I've designed for the past four M Club's here
. If you like my designs I know you'll enjoy these new patterns!
How The N Club different than Lola's Choice?
Lola’s Choice is a club focused on smaller, quick knits, whereas the N Club kits are bigger and more complex. Both are super fun and satisfying! The right club for you will depend on what kind of knitting experience you want to have. If both sound appealing - do both!
There are a couple extra special things about the The N Club:
All designs are exclusive just for club members for one whole year, the yarn is special-order and custom dyed, AND The N Club kits have a non-beading option for those of you who love my designs, but aren't as drawn to beading.
The N Club also has a private Facebook Group for members only, and we'll have live un-boxings on zoom a few weeks after the US kits ship. In these PRIVATE LIVE events I'll tell all the club members about the yarn, design, goodie and answer questions! Live events are SUPER fun, and doing small ones for the club keeps our connection strong! After the event I'll e-mail links to download the pattern so everyone can start knitting at once. There will be a KAL thread set up in the Nelkin Designs Ravelry group
Can I add beads to my kit after I receive it?
What is an exclusive pattern?
Probably.... I tend to "overbuy" when I purchase for clubs, so I'll probably have a few extra bead bags available. But, if you think you want to work with beads I'd sign up for that option to start with!
An exclusive pattern is sent to members of the N Club and is not available for sale to people outside the club until one year has passed from the release date. After a year has passed, these patterns will be available for purchase to the general public. These patterns are also pdf's sent through the Ravelry system for download.
What is the degree of difficulty? Will I be able to make these designs?
The patterns in the club are all rated as at least Intermediate. But before you decide that’s too advanced for you, remember that I provide full length video tutorials and a lot of support. If you want to learn, I'll be there to help you!
OF COURSE! I love helping you learn new techniques, and you know that I think a video is worth a thousand words!
What yarns/companies are you working with?
This is part of the mystery, but if you know my designs, you'll know I LOVE working with hand-dyers and unique bases that you might not have worked with before!
Will the yarn be exclusive colorways?
Yes! I am working with dyers to design colors that are unique for this club! Some dyers ask that the color rights revert back to them in 6 months to a year, which I have agreed to!
Can I sign up for a "pattern-only" version of the club?
Sorry, the patterns for the three exclusive KALs will not be available for sale to people outside the club until one year has passed from the release date.
Do you ship overseas?
Yes! You will notice there is an additional fee for overseas shipping.
Can I combine shipments with friends or my guild?
No, sorry, each shipment will be sent to the address provided when you sign up. Should you move please contact us as soon as possible so we can update our files.
How is my "kit" shipped?
All N Club kits will be shipped USPS first class mail.
Can I give this club as a gift?
YEAH! What an awesome present! There is an option to do this when you order!
Do I have to have a Ravelry ID?
No, but it does make it easier to get patterns into your library so they update automatically. If you aren't on Ravelry, you can still use the download code and the pattern will be e-mailed to you, just be sure to save it to your device.
How do I pay?
N Club memberships can be charged in one or two installments. There is a $20 fee for the two installment option. You can pay with paypal, visa, mastercard or discover. By signing up and paying the full amount or deposit you have committed to the entire club.
To make The N Club possible, all yarn and goodies are purchased and dyed well in advance exclusively for the club. No refunds or cancellations will be accepted.
