Jyväskylä Summer Knit Festival program

Jyväskylä Summer Knit Festivals is a festival organized by Yarn Shop Titityy since 2016. The festival brings knitters and craftsmen together from all over the world. In 2019, the Jyväskylä Summer Knitting Festival was awarded by the city of Jyväskylä with the Yleisötapahtumapalkinto roughly translated as Audience Event Award. 

The Jyväskylä Summer Knit Festival is known for their wonderful atmosphere, delicious yarns and enlightening courses. The festival has gained a well-established place in the international knit scene. The festival is organised entirely by Titityy staff and volunteers. Since the most frequently asked question is when will be the next event, in 2022 we have smaller events throughout the year as well as the main event in July. 

Follow Knit Festival’s Instagram and Facebook page, plus subscribe to Yarn Shop Titityy’s newsletter to stay up to date. 

Meet and knit Saturday 11.6. 10 am to 6 pm

PROGRAM

Knit Love Unite Shawl pattern release and cast on party at 2.30 pm
Friendship inspired the Knit Love Unite shawl. Tiina and Laine’s Jonna got to know each other years ago. Since then they’ve encouraged each other, knitted hundreds of sweaters and shared many laughs and now designed a shawl to celebrate the joy of friendship and the knitting community.
Buy the Knit Love Unite Scarf Kit from Titityy’s webshop.

Anna Johanna and Strands of Joy trunk show at Titityy/outside 2 to 5 pm
It’s been a year since Anna Johanna released her book Strands Of Joy. The book has become a worldwide success. If you’ve knitted any of the designs from the book or if it’s still on your needles, bring them along and we will take a photo!
