scarves, shrugs and shawls

Congrats to Robin, Pat and Kathrynn!

This week’s giveaway is another big one. I’ve been doing some cleaning in my office and realized that somehow I have three copies of Sarah Hatton’s Scarves, Shrugs & Shawls.

This book has 22 patterns for a range of skill levels and styles. Even newer knitters can find something to stitch here, but those with more experience should enjoy it, too.

I won’t guarantee you’ll have time for holiday knitting from this book this year if you’re a winner, but I think it has some great ideas you’ll want to think about for future gift-giving opportunities.

I’m giving away all three copies of this book, so there will be three winners.

For a chance to win please comment on this post before the end of the day Sunday, Dec. 8. The random number generator will pick our winners.

If you want, why don’t you tell me your favorite: scarves, shrugs or shawls? I’ve been a huge scarf fan for a long time, but shawls are starting to win me over a bit!

Thanks for visiting and good luck!

    My husband has recently started knitting (think: big man, big beard, bald, with tattoos and gauged ears holding a pair of knitting needles!) and he’s made several hats and has gotten pretty darn good (pun intended). I would love to give him something like this to help him move on to other projects.

  2. Diane Klimek on December 3, 2013 1:36 pm

    Still a beginner knitter and crocheter, and I love making scarves. No armholes, no gauging…easy for my brain to wrap around. Now reading a pattern, that’s a killer. :D My favorite scarf is the first one I ever tried knitting. Made with red heart and fun fur doubled up…super warm and because of it I mastered the knit stitch. (If I could only learn the purl stitch now…)

  3. Shespins on December 3, 2013 1:40 pm

    I would love a copy. Most of the gifts I make are scarves and simple shawls.

  4. Robin Crittenden on December 3, 2013 1:41 pm

    I knit scarves because they are quick but im about finishef with Sheldon and Leonard. Pretty neat pattern.

  5. Kim Gappins on December 3, 2013 1:47 pm

    I am planning to make scarves for christmas gifts this year, been working with sashay and would like to try the ARM KNIT infinity scarf. I am looking forward to these quick turn around projects as I am about to finish a granny square afghan.

  6. Lee on December 3, 2013 2:25 pm

    I love the infinity scarves and the chunky style cowls! thanks!

  7. Susan Goen on December 3, 2013 2:33 pm

    I love scarves, but lighter weight shawls that can be worn like scarves are very versatile.

  8. Marlene on December 3, 2013 2:52 pm

    I love to wear shawls and to knit them

  9. knittingdancer on December 3, 2013 2:54 pm

    I like to knit shawls.

  10. Stephanie E on December 3, 2013 3:21 pm

    I enjoy scarves. Easy, versatile and quick because I get bored easily. Still have a tunic/dress that needs the sleeves and back panel.

  11. azteclady on December 3, 2013 3:23 pm

    I love knitting scarves because they are fairly quick, and I really enjoy the feeling of accomplishment. I have knit both shawls and shrugs, and like both the process, though it’s lengthier, and the end result.

    Thank you for the generous giveaway!

  12. geri actor on December 3, 2013 3:38 pm

    like shawls to make for me and neat scarves to make as gifts.

  13. Maureen on December 3, 2013 4:08 pm

    I am have always enjoyed knitting shawls. I am in fact knitting one now and I am also doing a scarf.

  14. Linda on December 3, 2013 4:20 pm

    Shawls, scarves…always have at least one on needles at all times!!

  15. marie on December 3, 2013 4:35 pm

    Shrugs are my favorite. I’ve been wanting to try my hand at scarves.

  16. Sophie on December 3, 2013 4:59 pm

    I would love to enter! This is very tempting!

  17. Kelly on December 3, 2013 6:07 pm

    I want to learn to knit shrugs and shawls. I knit scarves because they’re easier.

  18. kathy on December 3, 2013 7:33 pm

    I’m hoping to finish some scarves for gifts. Great giveaway.

  19. kathy on December 3, 2013 7:42 pm

    I’m trying to complete a few scarves for gifts. Great giveaway.

  20. Andrea W. on December 3, 2013 8:31 pm

    I love shawls but recently I am leaning toward scarves and shawlettes. For some reason I am enjoying the warm comfort around my neck! Just getting older I guess…

  21. Elizabeth on December 3, 2013 8:46 pm

    Shawls or scarves

  22. Michelle H on December 3, 2013 10:06 pm

    I want to be a scarf person, but it never feels natural to me. Definitely a shawl kind of gal.

  23. Melody J on December 3, 2013 10:44 pm

    I only knitting a basic striped scarf. It’s purple and lavender.

  24. Melanie Hayes on December 3, 2013 11:11 pm

    I have just started knitting shawls and just finished the wingspan, it was fun to knit and turned out great, it is a free pattern on Ravelry

  25. Donna H on December 3, 2013 11:21 pm

    This is such a wonderful giveaway!! I’ve knit a lot of scarves and definitely enjoy them, but I’ve just recently made a few shawls, too.


  26. nancy d on December 4, 2013 1:08 am

    I have done many scarfs. And several shrugs too. Shawls are on my list next. I really want to learn how to knit those pretty, lacy ones.

  29. Christina on December 4, 2013 4:55 am

    I love shawls the best.

  30. Alice C. on December 4, 2013 6:59 am

    I’ve crocheted lots of scarves for gifting, and I really want to learn to knit some. I know the basic knitting stitches, and this book of 22 patterns would be a real boon!

  31. Cathy R on December 4, 2013 7:18 am

    I’m an equal opportunity scarf and shawl person. It really depends on the weather which one is my favorite that day! LOL!

  32. Janet Luttrell on December 4, 2013 8:31 am

    These would be a great collection of patterns that I could make and give to family and friends. Thank you for giving me the chance to win this.

  33. Julia K on December 4, 2013 9:04 am

    I love making and wearing cowls.

  34. Sandy on December 4, 2013 9:08 am

    What a fun project book.

  35. Barbara on December 4, 2013 9:15 am

    I don’t have a favorite yet because I always like to knit something new….Thanks for the give away!

  36. Mary Mac on December 4, 2013 9:16 am

    I love wearing scarfs and look for different patterns when I am knitting one.

  37. Gail Frank on December 4, 2013 9:17 am

    I’m a big scarf knitter but would love to move into shrugs and shawls.

  38. Ofelia on December 4, 2013 9:19 am

    I love infinity scarves…but shawls are winning my affection too… ;)
    Thank you for the giveaway.

  39. Sue Miller on December 4, 2013 9:24 am

    I love to knit scarves snd shawls.

  40. Karey on December 4, 2013 9:31 am

    I love to knit shawls and scarves! I don’t usually wear shawls, so those end up as gifts, but they are still fun to knit!

  41. Rose S. on December 4, 2013 9:37 am

    I almost always have a scarf on the needles as I love gifting them to my friends and family.

  42. Anne Marie on December 4, 2013 9:38 am

    I think potato chip scarves are fun.

  43. Marilyn (Merry) Fenton on December 4, 2013 9:40 am

    I don’t mind scarves made with thicker weight wool but fingering ones seem endless. I love the look of shawls but my first and only one cast on is now hibernating. Maybe this book would give me a kick start.

  44. Sylvia on December 4, 2013 9:48 am

    I participate in two prayer shawl knit/crochet groups and am always on the lookout for new patterns to create and contribute. This book sounds like it would be very helpful.

  45. Lennette Daniels on December 4, 2013 9:50 am

    This would be a great resource for shawl knitting. Would love it. Thanks for the giveaway.

  46. Kimberly D. on December 4, 2013 9:56 am

    My 21 year old daughter recently taught herself to knit by watching YouTube videos. She loves making scarves. I would love to win this book for her.

  47. Linda on December 4, 2013 10:06 am

    I like to knit shrugs-they show off beautiful yarn so well.

  48. Diane on December 4, 2013 10:06 am

    There is nothing more that I enjoy than knitting!

  49. Margie on December 4, 2013 10:07 am

    I was a die-hard scarf fan until I knit a small shawlette of fingering weight yarn and wrapped it around my neck scarf-style. So soft and cozy and much less bulky than a scarf. I’ve been a convert ever since.

  50. Sandra on December 4, 2013 10:24 am

    these are very nice patterns!

  51. lynn on December 4, 2013 10:39 am

    Oh another great give away and with 3 books the chances are better. I would love this book. Just started knitting 2 scarves rushing towards that holiday deadline.

  52. Chloe on December 4, 2013 10:40 am

    I am a new knitter but I’d love to learn some new techniques & spruce up my wardrobe with a copy of this book :)

  53. Sara on December 4, 2013 10:47 am

    I am *obsessed* with scarves, but the shawls and shrugs are starting to look like a lot of fun, too!!

  54. Melissa Manczuk on December 4, 2013 10:57 am

    I tend to wear shawls mostly for work. I would love some more patterns to make.

  55. Sarah on December 4, 2013 11:00 am

    Cute patterns! I would love to knot some up for the cold winter months!

  56. joyce on December 4, 2013 11:25 am

    I am working on my first shawl but I have collected several more patterns for beautiful shawls and scarves. I haven’t made enough to have a favorite yet.

  57. Mary Lee on December 4, 2013 11:29 am

    This book is just my speed! I’m not ready to tackle sweaters and large projects. I’ve loved the shawls I’ve knitted; I was surprised that how warm they can be. I find myself grabbing one instead of a jacket to run out to get the paper in the morning or to take to the movies, where I’m usually cold, no matter what the season.

  58. Cynthia W on December 4, 2013 11:44 am

    My favorite is shoulder shawls and cowls!

  59. Betty on December 4, 2013 12:14 pm

    Thank you for the giveaway, Sarah. It’s our first snow day of the season in South Dakota- perfect time for some new patterns for cold-weather wear.

  60. Darla on December 4, 2013 12:22 pm

    Thanks for the opportunity to win one of your give aways. I knit but need practice. Looks like some great projects and I would certainly use the book if I won.


  61. Rebecca Boukikaz on December 4, 2013 12:28 pm

    I like scarves but I see so many shawls that are beautiful. I think I am going to have to try one.

  62. Vivian on December 4, 2013 12:28 pm

    Shawls are my favorite. but rather than the triange ones I preferthe rectangle or cresent shape as I am short and get tired of sitting on the back point. Thanks fo the giveawy!

  63. Cindy S on December 4, 2013 12:36 pm

    I’m knitting my favorite scarf so far. It’s a sampler scarf like they knit in the 1800′s. It has different lacy stitches and when I get tired of one I just switch to another!

  64. Dennis Mullins Sr on December 4, 2013 12:43 pm

    Hi, thanks for the giveaway. I am a beginner so I could really use this book. Happy Holiday.

  65. Jeannie on December 4, 2013 1:09 pm

    Love to make a shrug. Thanks

  66. Liz on December 4, 2013 1:17 pm

    Im always on the lookout for new patterns. This book looks great.

  67. Pat Bowmaster on December 4, 2013 1:33 pm

    I would love to be able to make shrugs and shawls to wear when it gets chilly in church.

  68. shelley on December 4, 2013 2:44 pm

    I would live to have some new scarf ideas Shrugs are all the rage and a person could never make enough of them

  69. Dawn F. on December 4, 2013 3:01 pm

    I’m definitely a scarf addict. I can’t get enough! This would be nice to add to my pattern library. Thank you.

  70. Maryanne on December 4, 2013 3:57 pm

    I am really getting into knitting and wearing shawls.

  71. Donna Reed on December 4, 2013 4:16 pm

    Love knitting shawls. But prefer small shawlettes for wearing.

  72. mary fanara coleman on December 4, 2013 4:31 pm

    Would love to win this for my mother.

  73. Kim Reid on December 4, 2013 5:00 pm

    I would love a chance to enter, thanks!

  74. Pat morris on December 4, 2013 6:14 pm

    Please pick me . I’m looking for a nice shrug pattern.

  75. Cindy on December 4, 2013 7:25 pm

    I’ve really enjoyed knitting shugs lately. They are so practical.

  76. Theresa on December 4, 2013 8:02 pm

    I love shawls. So nice to add a bit of warmth on a summer evening or when you go into an air conditioned building.

  77. Sherry J on December 4, 2013 8:58 pm

    I need to work on my knitting skills, and these patterns look like a great way to do that.

  78. kim on December 5, 2013 5:05 am

    I have been stuck in a cowl rut. Would love to try a shawl and some new scarf patterns!

  79. Anda S on December 5, 2013 6:03 am

    I really hate the cold weather (I am more of a summer person), but in the same time I really love anything made of wool. Most of all I like cowls, but anything that keeps me warm (especially shrugs or shawls, because I can wear them with all kinds of clothes) is perfect.

  80. Jaan L on December 5, 2013 7:33 am

    I love making scarves and shawls to give away to anyone who needs to stay warm.

  81. Kathrynn on December 5, 2013 9:26 am

    I love scarves, I make them to give away to family.

  82. Andrea on December 5, 2013 9:49 am

    Definite fan of shawls

  83. Pat Dunn on December 5, 2013 12:47 pm

    I like to make a large scarf/shawl for dual purpose.

  84. Lorna on December 5, 2013 1:56 pm

    With the weather in the single digits this week, I think I need to crochet another scarf for myself!

  85. Meredyth on December 5, 2013 2:29 pm

    I love to knit shawls!

    […] Knitting @ CraftGossip – Three winners: a copy of Sarah Hatton’s Scarves, Shrugs & Shawls. Comment by the end of the day Sunday December 8. […]

  87. Elena T on December 5, 2013 7:07 pm

    I have made many scarves and shawls, but have not tried a shrug yet and want to make one. I guess I like shawls because there is a larger canvas to make pretty lace patterns.

  88. janell on December 6, 2013 6:39 am

    I like scarves the best!

  89. Cheryl on December 6, 2013 10:58 am

    A shawl would be nice.
    Thank you for a chance
    to win.

  90. Catherine on December 6, 2013 11:44 am

    I love scarves! They’re so versatile

  91. Cindy on December 6, 2013 12:37 pm

    Scarves are a great chance for me to try a new pattern or yarn in a relatively small project. This book looks full of tempting ideas!

  92. Stephanie on December 6, 2013 1:00 pm

    I really like this book (checked it out when it came into the library) and would love to own it.

    thanks for the giveaway!

  93. Carmen on December 6, 2013 3:04 pm

    I don’t think I’ve ever worn a shrug but I could see the advantage over a shawl. My personal favorite are scarves.

  94. Sheila on December 6, 2013 5:45 pm

    I prefer shawls.

  95. Ashlyn on December 6, 2013 5:47 pm

    Snuggling with tea, book, and wrapped in a shawl is my favorite winter weekend activity…and often times knitting needles. Oh, to share the gift of warmth! Absolutely love the giveaway. Thanks!

  96. Susie on December 6, 2013 8:38 pm

    I just retired a month ago and now I want to do everything that I never had time to do before, like knitting and crocheting. I would love to own one of the scarf and shawl books. I think it would be a great way to get reacquainted with skills I used to have years ago. Thank You.

  97. Sheila on December 7, 2013 11:04 am

    I’m a scarf collector!

  98. Diana T. on December 7, 2013 1:26 pm

    I am a big fan of shawls. I have made a few but always give them away as gifts.

  99. Linda on December 7, 2013 3:22 pm

    I like to knit both scarves and shawls as well.
    Scarves, usually for the men and shawls for me. The book looks wonderful. Thanks for the chance to win!

  100. Kanda Buchanan 40140 on December 7, 2013 5:29 pm

    I love to crochet shawls , caowls nad scarves. Quick gifts.

  101. Kay Jones on December 8, 2013 11:57 am

    I’m an avid spinner and have just spun up some Portland fleece with ginger alpaca. It cries out to be knitted into a scarf and I’m sure I would find just the pattern in the book. Thank you for giving us this chance to win

  102. KittenWithAWhiplash on December 8, 2013 12:48 pm

    Scarves and cowls for me, especially now that we need fast knits for the homeless.

  103. Charlotte on December 8, 2013 1:24 pm

    my favorite are narrow scarves, because even with sock yarn & size 1, they get done faster, but I do make a lot of shawls to give away.
