An Area Patch is a special item in Kirby's Epic Yarn which is used to open all stages beyond the first in each land. The majority of patches are earned simply by completing stages, though the patches to extra levels can only be obtained by collecting enough bead points in the appropriate prior stages (usually Boss stages). There are six area patches in each land, except for Quilty Square, which has none.

Each patch, when used, causes a unique animation to play on the level map in order to unlock its respective stage.
