Giveaway: Teach Yourself Visually Color Knitting

color knitting book giveaway

Congratulations to commenter 6, Stephanie!

If you’ve been wanting to learn some color knitting techniques (or want to learn more, or need a brush up) this week’s giveaway is for you.

I’ve got a copy of Teach Yourself Visually Color Knitting by Mary Scott Huff, which is full of instructions, patterns and ideas for knitting stripes, stranded knitting, intarsia, entrelac, modular knitting and more.

Not only are there tons of pictures with the instructions for how to complete each technique, there are patterns you can learn with and idea galleries that will spark other projects as well.

It’s a great overview of a lot of different techniques and you’re sure to learn something even if you’re already comfortable with some of these techniques.

One winner will be picked at random from people who comment on this post before the end of the day Sunday, June 22. Why don’t you tell me what kind of colorwork is your favorite, or which one you haven’t learned yet that you’d like to?

Thanks for visiting, commenting and sharing. And good luck!

    I’ve always loved Kaffe Fasset’s style – a lovely blend of fair isle and intarsia. I’ve recently taught myself to knit continental style but I’ve yet to master colour work when knitting in this way.

    I have BIG problems when it comes to combining colors. To me it seems that nothing matches. Therefore a book like this one will tremendously help with my problem.

  3. Sherry Bevins says

    I am trying to teach myself color knitting via the internet. I would love this book!

  4. Stefanie Tolbert says

    Love this series! I learned to knit from them, and I could definitely use more color knitting tips!

  5. Kianna says

    I have attempted intarsia and unknowingly done stranded before any thing intermediate color work is for me though…

    Sarah, I follow you on about.com Knitting… love your information there!

    I am a very experienced knitter… as long as it is one color, I can cable it, make it, wrap it with a bow and get accolades from everyone who sees it…

    :<( what I cannot do is ANY kind of color work. I have read blogs, I have looked at videos and podcasts… tried and apparently, when presented with the opportunity to "pick" which color is next, I become all thumbs and it ends up being a total disaster. So you see, I desperately NEED this book, because I feel like I am missing out on a whole side of knitting!

    Thank you!

    I would love to win this and learn to knit. I taught myself over fours ago how to crochet. I would love to use my grandmother’s knitting needles. I will keep my needles crossed. Thank for the chance. Paper Wishes & Crafty Dreams :)

    I’m still struggling to get my stitches even in fair isle – but it’s a goal I want to accomplish.

    I’ve done a little stranded knitting and I like it, but I really need to figure out a better way to hold the yarn.

    Intarsia scares me!
