Welcome to the Under the Olive Tree Knits online knitting shop. Here you will find hand-dyed yarns for knitting or crochet, knitting patterns for hand-dyed yarns, knitting kits, knitting notions, knitting needles, tools and accessories.
All knitting patterns have been professionally tech edited and test knitted. Knitting tutorial videos are linked in the patterns and are available on the website, so you can cast on your next project with confidence.
All hand-dyed yarns are responsibly sourced and dyed by Jem in small batches. Due to the nature of the dyeing techniques, the skeins are unique and some of the variageted colourways are limited so it is recommended that you purchase enough yarn to complete your project.
Unless a colourway is stated as a 'one of a kind' then chances are that the colourway can be repeated. So if you see a colourway that you like and it is showing as out of stock, or you want extra skeins or on a different yarn base, then please drop me a message and I can dye some more for you.
All knitting kits come with the pattern and your choice of yarn (and beads if it is a beaded project). You then have the option to add on any extras such as a needle. All kits come in an organza bag and make great gifts too!
Find a range of KnitPro knitting needles and other knitting accessories including: shawl pins, stitch markers, knit blockers, and t-pins and small crochet hooks for beading.
Custom hand-dyed yarn orders are available in a variety of colours and across a variety of bases from laceweight to chunky yarns. Visit the Dyed to Order page for more information.
