New Knit Picks patterns and a giveaway!

Still catching up on recent publications. Last week, Knit Picks published two of my patterns. First is the Bridgehampton Pullover, part of the Shoreline collection:

It's knitted from the top down in Comfy Sport, a super soft cotton blend. The neck has a simple rolled edge, and some short rows raise the back neck. The circular yoke has a few stripes for a fun pop of color. The hem is also shaped with short rows to curve it a bit. Here's my version:

I can't wait until the weather is cool enough to wear this one! Granted... that will likely be December, but what can I do. The yarn is sooo soft, and I really like the way this looks on me. It's cute. :)

Knit Picks sent me an extra book of this collection; want to win it?? Just leave a comment here and I'll pick a winner on Saturday, July 2nd. US only please!

Second pattern: this is a free one on the Knit Picks website. Subtle Stripes Cowl is just like what it sounds. It's, well, a cowl, and it's knitted in two similar colors to create subtle stripes. There's a small 3-stripe section called out in a contrast color, just for fun. This was great mellow knitting- round and round, then round some more. It's worked in a new Knit Picks yarn, Paragon, which has a lovely sheen and drape to it. This is the long version:

And here's my version; I made the shorter cowl for myself, because we live at the gates of Hell, it's hot, blahblah you've heard it all before and I don't need a long cowl. 

That's my "I might be planning something evil face"

Don't forget to enter to win the book! Also, I made a Ravelry group for myself today. I need a place to ask for test knitters, post promotions, that kind of thing. I'd be so, so happy if you'd join!

  2. The Bridgehampton pullover is beautiful. In cotton it would make a nice sweater for winter in Florida.
