Sock Yarn Scarves Giveaway!

 

If you like Siempre or any of the other designs from Knit Picks' new collection, Sock Yarn Scarves, you're in luck! I'm excited to share that Knit Picks has generously provided a print copy of the book for me to give away to one lucky reader!

This collection includes 7 beautiful scarf, cowl, and stole designs, all knit in fingering weight yarn.

 
Estivate, by Teresa Gregorio of Canary Knits, is my personal favorite.

 
The Bees and Honeybees Stole, from Stephanie Tallent at Sunset Cat Designs, is just beautiful.

 
The texture on the Ridgeline Trail cowl , by Angela Modzelewski, is fantastic.

 
The mix of lace and ribbing on the Ridge and Arrow infinity scarf, by Courtney Spainhower of Pink Brutus Knits, is so unique.

 
Try your hand at some unique colorwork with the Gradient Waves cowl by Hope Vickman.

 
Or go for a quick, lacy project with the Everlasting Cowl, by Robin Allen from A Texas Girl Knits.

(Queue up or show some love for any or all of these patterns here on Ravelry!)




But wait! There's more! To sweeten the deal, they're throwing in 2 skeins of Stroll Glimmer in Runway so you can knit your very own Siempre!



This is a great collection for fall, and will arrive right at your door, just in time for cooler weather (unless you live in Maryland; then you know that cool weather is, inexplicably, here right now. Not that I'm complaining. I'm just . . . confused.)

So, how do you enter? Just leave a comment below telling me which pattern you'll knit first (I won't hold it against you if it's not mine!). I'll keep this giveaway running until Monday, August 25, and then announce a winner by the end of the month!

I think I'd do the Everlasting cowl first. But I'd have Siempre on my list for sure :)

Sarah said...

Looks like following your blog was a very good decision. :) Since colorwork has been my "thing" lately, I'd do the gradient waves first. All of the patterns are lovely! Thanks for the giveaway!

ellie said...

Gradient wave. I haven't done much color work, it looks like a good one to try!

Sarah said...

There are so many beautiful designs, and such a nice variety. I think I would want to start with Bees and Honeybees.

Stephanie said...

Ridge and Arrow is so cute! I'd knit that one. :)

Constance Brewer said...

I do love cowls, so Everlasting Cowl would be my first knit.

Diane421 said...

I would love to knit THE BEES AND HONEYBEES STOLE. I love the design and colorway. I would make all of them. All of the patters are great.

dharmarose said...

I'm just fascinated by the Ridgeline Trail Cowl. Simple and classic, and a wonderful gift for sister, I"m thinking?

donnadb said...

Love Siempre! Can't be beat, but I'm also tempted by the diametrically opposed style of Ridgeline Trail.

amchart said...

Estivate is very cool.

Marilyn a.k.a. Merry said...

Bees and honeybees for me!

It may be the color, but the Everlasting Cowl looks amazing and would be first on my needles.

FlyKytten, Hufflepuff, HPKCHC, Ravelry said...

It would be such a hard choice! I think Estivate first, but that might be because that green has captivated me! ;)

kristelknab said...

I think I'd do the Bees and Honeybees Stole first! They're all so beautiful though, it's hard to decide!

pudgypooh said...

The Everlasting Cowl would be perfect for my daughter.

Jen Pester said...

Siempre is just gorgeous! I would probably have that one on the queue first followed by the Everlasting Cowl.

Sonia said...

Bees and honeybees!!

pok said...

Vickie (Turtleknits on Ravelry) said...

Gradient Waves. I like a challenge.

Drae said...

I like Gradient Waves

Judy11 said...

Loved them all, but the Everlasting cowl is calling out some of the many many skeins of fingering weight yarn I seem to have collected along the way.

suburban prep said...

I like the Gradient waves but then it was hard to pick just one item that I liked most.

Anonymous said...

From GinaC. (mad4plaid...Rav) Love cowls; love them all...would like to start off with the colour work of Gradient Waves.

Denise from Hamilton said...

I really like the Everlasting Cowl. It looks to be just the right amount of challenge for me.

Now Am Found! said...

ridge and arrow first, but all of them for sure

Heather Baylis said...

How does one choose? They are all so lovely! I think I would do the ridge & arrows first, followed by your beautiful Estivate. Thank you so much....Heather

Definitely Siempre, but I adore all the designs in this book! I'd love to win :) (jmj697mn@yahoo.com and jmj697mn on Rav and twitter)

Sheila said...

It's a tie which I'd knit first, your Siempre or the Bees and Honeybees scarf. Guess it would depend on if I was in a cable or a lace mood when it came time to cast on.

Kathy McDowell said...

They are ALL such great knits, but I was drawn to the Ridge and Arrow first! Thanks for the chance to win this great giveaway!

Colleen Dixon said...

I'm torn between Siempre and Bees and Honeybees. I love them both!

Gina Zahra said...

Ridge and Arrow - my daughter would love it :)

Brandy Velten said...

I love the Everlasting cowl, but it's so hard to choose.

advilhauer said...

There are many I would eventually get to (WILL eventually get to), but I think Bees and Honeybees would be my very first.

Cindy Smith said...

I think the Everlasting cowl would be at the top of the list. I have stash that would look great. But that is a tough choice! I think I would end up making most of them.

Hannah said...

Ridge and Arrow for me! :)

Jen M said...

I'd probably try the Ridge & Arrow first, but really love them all!

Love them all, but Bees and Honeybees first for me then I would work my way through the rest. I am Twofishknitting on Ravelry xx

Rebecca Davis said...

I would knit the Ridge and Arrow infinity scarf first.

MNSusan said...

We,, I've been working on lace most recently, and did my first color work this last year. Now would seem to be the time to try my hand at cables... So Siempre it is! (Especially if I win the yarn to go with it!)

Anonymous said...

Which first? Oh, choices choices! but Bees and Honeybees got me. I've been stung. lol They're all beautiful

Karla Hartzell said...

I would without a moments hestiation dive upon "The Bees and the HoneyBees Stole" Just to experience that lovely stitch pattern in glorious repetition and Did I mention I love Yellow?

Karla

They are all pretty can't decide

jtb34 said...

Depending on which yarn I'd fallen in love with most recently, I'm inclined to Bees & Honeybees.

Beach Denim said...

So many beautiful designs! I think I would start with Ridge and Arrow or Everlasting Cowl.

sañdra lamb said...

I'd start with bees and honeybees, but that would just the first of the beautiful patterns to knit.

Crys said...

Siempre first because I'd already have the yarn on hand, but next I'd probably cast on Ridgeline Trail and Gradient Waves at the same time!

Kim said...

Bees and Honeybees for sure! This is such a great idea because I always find really awesome fingering weight yarn, but never have a scarf or cowl pattern to use it with! This solves that dilemma!

Noël Doiron said...

Definitely the Siempra, I am in love with it!

Jen said...

Bees and honeybees. So pretty!

Barb said...

I cannot imagine a better project to work on while Im at the beach. I have been thinking of what to work on and like magic your post appears. The Gradient Waves Cowl is calling my name. I absolutely love this pattern and would love to make it and quickly because yes I live in Maryland and you know the saying. "Wait 10 minutes and the season will change".

Jo said...

All so beautiful, but I would do Ridge & Arrow first.

Stacey Dyer said...

Sooo many beautiful designs! I'd start with the Bees and Honeybees and keep on going :)

akshata kallianpur - dhareshwar said...

Gradient Waves looks very very tempting! I would knit it first for sure...but the rest would follow as they would make perfect gifts for Christmas this year :-)

Becky said...

The Ridge and Arrow Lace infinity scarf would be first on my list. Thanks for showing highlights of this book.

Angila Walker said...

I would love to knit the Everlasting Cowl.

Elizabeth Claassen said...

Oh, I love infinity scarves, so Siempre would definitely be the top of my list of these. But they're all gorgeous and would be knit in fairly rapid succession, I think!

heather turner said...

I would totally knit the Bees and Honeybees Stole. Too cute.

ajean said...

Everlasting Cowl would be first up, but they're all lovely!

Elyse Rumley said...

I'd either knit Siempre, Everlasting Cowl, or Estivate first, but... I can't decide! I love them all.

Agatha Gallion said...

I would do the Everlasting Cowl first. It is gorgeous

Chrissy Z said...

I'd start with the Bees and Honeybees Stole --- it looks so cheerful!

Fawn Spencer said...

I would start with Bees and Honeybees, as my dad keeps bees and my mom makes candles with the wax. The honey is delicious.

Kathleen said...

I would knit the Everlasting Cowl first but I think that I would make it longer so that it could be doubled around the neck. Actually I like all of the designs and had a very difficult time deciding which one I would knit 1st!

SuzanneS said...

The Ridgeline Trail Cowl

Pat said...

I would do the Ribs and Arrows Infinity Cowl.

Katie DeVault said...

Kara said...

I'd probably make the Bees and Honeybees Stole first, but I'd probably eventually make all of them. Sometimes a light but warm scarf/stole/cowl is exactly the right thing!

NW Quilter said...

Love the Everlasting Cowl!

My heart is here said...

I would do Bees and Honeybees! :)

NancyB85374 said...

I love the Ridgeline Trail Cowl. Actually, there are several others too. This book will be on my wish list.

All of them were beautiful but the first one I'd try is Estivate.

I've been itching for some colorwork, so I'd probably start with Gradient Waves.

Oh my I love them all! But Siempre would be my first to knit. A great collection!
