About

Knitting the Open Sea

Pirate Knitting is a small, but mighty crew of based out of The San Francisco Bay Area.

Born in 1993 in San Jose, California, Melanie Thomson has been knitting for nearly a decade. Having been taught by her grandmother she is able to keep a classy and practical sense of fashion to her knitting projects as well as incorporating her own personal style.

In between knitting projects Melanie keeps herself busy as a full time student at San Jose State University where she is studying Event Management.

Pirate Knitting started as just an idea among Melanie and her family in the fall of 2011, but by that winter that idea became a reality and was officially opened.

Melanie's intentions with Pirate Knitting is to create warm, comfy, one-of-a-kind, and custom items for everyone to enjoy with hopes of being able to cover her school fees.

One of Melanie's favorite things about Pirate Knitting is the fact that it became noticed by the organization Straight But Not Narrow after she made a SBNN hat for herself. Within a short matter of time she was getting orders from people in Oregon to people in the Czech Republic for their own SBNN hat.

Knitting for travels. Knitting to keep warm. Knitting since 2004. Pirate Knitting.

Shipping
Items ship Monday-Friday by USPS First Class with a tracking number. I do not ship items on the day before any major holiday (ask for clarification of which holidays). International items are sent out of USPS and unfortunately have no tracking number. If you would prefer for me to ship your purchase another way please let me know, I will be happy to do so, but it will be an additional fee. Please let me know before you order your item so that I can adjust the item for you as well.

_______I SHIP ITEMS_______
As noted in my shop announcement, underneath my shop banner. Each listing will accurately estimate the amount of time between your purchase and when it arrives on your doorstep. Please let me know as soon as possible if you need your item shipped by a certain day and I'll be glad to oblige.

_______SHIPPING INCLUDES_______
The shipping cost includes the cost of packaging material, cost of shipping, and delivery confirmation

Please note that all items packed in a special, gold, handmade bag, wrapped in tissue paper, and then packed carefully into its box. If you would like additional wrapping (if it is for a gift we can add a little extra something special) please let me know before ordering so that I can add that to your order.

_______BEFORE ORDERING_______
I send all my packages through the United States Postal Service. I ship to the address that YOU give to ETSY, so please be sure it's correct before ordering. I can't be held responsible for incorrect addresses.

To expedite your order or ensure you'll get your package by a special date, contact me BEFORE payment so I can upgrade your shipping!

If you'd like your order to be gift wrapped or include a special note, let me know as soon as possible (preferably in your buyer's notes at checkout).

_______INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS _______
All int'l packages are sent First Class (no tracking). I send all of my packages as merchandise through USPS - any customs fees are the responsibility of the buyer. Let me know if you would like a different shipping service (UPS) where I can provide you with a tracking number (please let me know before ordering as this will be an additional fee).

_______SHIPPING ERRORS_______
If for some reason you do not receive your item or it is sent back to me for some reason I will resend it to you ONCE for no cost. If you happen to not get your item a second time you have two options

1: I can refund you the money minus the amount of shipping for both unsuccessful attempts.

2: I can send it through another postal service (UPS), but that will be a costly additional fee on your part.

3: I can send it to another location, of your choosing, where you can pick it up at. This option will also cost an additional fee.
Refunds and Exchanges
I do not see any reason as to why you would change your mind about the wonderful treasure(s) you have purchased, but if you do in fact find yourself desiring something better please contact me as soon as possible so that we may discuss the situation and come to a fair agreement.

If refunding/exchanging, the customer will be responsible for the return shipping charges. Exchanges can be made for equal or lesser value, up to 30 days after shipment.

If you ever have a problem with your order or have questions about an item, PLEASE don't hesitate to contact me directly first, and I'll be happy to figure it out for you. I hope that we can work together to come up with an agreement that can make us both happy!
Additional policies and FAQs
All items in my store are handmade and most are already made before ordering. Since all items are handmade me and my team try our best to make each item as perfect as possible, however every item, like every person, will have tiny quirks about it which will allow it to be completely one of a kind.

I absolutely adore knitting for other people. Custom orders are my favorite! Anything in my shop can be customized just for you. Want something that's not in my shop? Let me know! I love a knitting challenge.

If you request a custom item/made to order item please be aware that most of my items are not made in a day. Please allow anywhere from 1-3 weeks for your item to be ready (some items may take longer than the 1-3 week period, in which case I will inform you on the expected time of completion).
