Congrats to our winner Chantel!
This week I’ve got a two-book set to give away: Vintage Knit Hats and Vintage Knit Gloves and Mittens, both by Kathryn Fulton. (In the interest of full disclosure, these are from my publisher. But they don’t pay me to say nice things about other people’s books.)
These books are full of patterns — 21 and 25 respectively — that look back at the classic shapes and designs of these accessory staples and make them interesting for today’s knitter with textured stitches, cables, colorwork and more. Some of the patterns are for kids, though most are for adults, and mostly women, but they’re nice, wide-ranging collections that cover the basics and beyond.
And don’t worry if you’ve never knit mittens or gloves before. Basic patterns take you through the step by step and are sized from small child to large adult, so you can knit a basic pair for every member of your family and graduate to the more complicated designs when you’re comfortable.
To be eligible to win this book set, leave a comment on this post before the end of the day Sunday, Feb. 9. I’d love to know if you’re a mitten person or a glove person. I prefer to knit mittens but I wear gloves more often, I have to say.
Thanks for visiting and good luck!
