**UPDATE: Congratulations to the winners: @pdrite, @RegencyKnitter, and @carriejayknit! Thanks to everyone for helping me get the word out. I really loved hearing which pieces were your favorites. Be sure to keep an eye out for future give-aways. I’ve got a few things up my sleeve, well actually more than a few, if you count those loose ends I never weaved in!
Winsome Knits, my newest pattern collection, was just released on The Knit Picks website. This collection has been almost a year in the making, and I couldn’t be happier with how it all turned out.
The collection consists of 6 patterns, and is available in an ebook format as well as in a full color beautifully printed soft cover book. Knit Picks is also offering digital versions of the individual patterns on their site.
I am really excited about all of the pieces in this collection. My goal was to make each design entertaining to knit. To achieve this, I incorporated motivating design elements like striping and unusual construction techniques. Also, some of the patterns are just plain quick and easy, and would make wonderful gifts.
Check out the rules for my Winsome Knits twitter contest for a chance to win a free pattern!
THE WINSOME KNITS COLLECTION
MOUNTAIN LAUREL EAR WARMER
This easy to knit ear warmer ties at the back, and features optional flower and leaf embellishments.
This design uses stripes to accentuate its unusual modular construction.
This cozy cardigan features a variety of interesting knit-purl textures and has a similar construction to turnstone.
CANOPUS MAGIC SCARF
This color blocked scarf transforms into a super cozy draped cowl or hood, and is right on trend.
ROSENDALE SLOUCHY HAT
This cute slouchy hat features a fun knit-purl stitch pattern that helps the hat slouch in an attractive way.
WESTFALIA TASSELED FRINGE SCARF
This surprisingly fun to knit lacy scarf would look great knitted in a variety of yarn weights.
I’d love to hear what everyone thinks about the collection! Please leave me a comment below. Also, I’m planning a contest with Winsome related prizes. So check back soon!
