About Us


“It is a warm environment where you can shop (great yarns, needles & supplies), take classes, sit and knit, and visit with the other knitters. The owner, Bonnie, and everyone who works at Compatto, are all lovely, helpful and genuinely seem to enjoy being there.”

Friendly employees are knowledgeable, encouraging and committed to including every knitter, crocheter, and weaver into our Compatto (Italian for close-knit) community. Regardless of your individual skill level or budget, Compatto has yarns, patterns, needles, and notions to meet your needs. And if we don’t, special orders are absolutely no problem.

Compatto’s basic knitting, crochet, and weaving classes are taught each month, along with many other options designed to get your creative juices flowing! Please take time to browse our list of classes and leave us your email so that we may keep you updated on our many special events, charity knitting, and guest workshops.

Located in the beautiful city of Santa Monica, we are easily accessible from just about any part of the greater Los Angeles area. We promise a warm greeting and eager assistance to make your journey worthwhile! It is our desire to make Compatto your favorite yarn shop…one you will look forward to visiting often.

Happy Knitting… Bonnie, Daniela, Diane, Kara, Lisa, Nanci, and Wendy
