Scarves in the Round AND Giveaway!

 

I’m really excited about this new book that was just released: Scarves in the Round — 25 Knitted Infinity Scarves, Neck Warmers, Cowls, and Double-Warm Tuber Scarves by Heather Walpole.

Scarves in the Round

Why do I love this book? Because everything is knit on circular needles and I LOVE my circular needles.  So much, in fact, that I often use my circular needles in place of straight needles.

I also love the fact that Heather Walpole devotes a section to “Basic and Beautiful” – these are simple patterns made entirely with knits and purls.  Added bonus – some of these are made with big needles, making the projects quicker to make.

For the more skilled and/or ambitious stitchers, there is entire section devoted to lace designs, and a section on cables, twists and bobbles.

The last pages of the book contain a lot of useful information (with pictures) about blocking, techniques, and stitches – a very useful for the beginning and less skilled knitters.

You can get a sneak peek at the book HERE.

The book is available for purchase at Stackpole Books or Amazon.

OR if you would like to try to win a free copy, leave a comment on this post telling me about the last cowl you knit or crocheted OR what interests you about making a cowl. I will select a random winner from all comments (1 entry per person) on July 31st.

Meanwhile, I’ll have to decide which project I want to make first!

    I love the idea of cowls – such a good way to add that finishing touch to any outfit! I wear a lot of solid colors and using some beautiful yarn really allows me to create some interesting color combinations.

    The last cowl I knitted was a pattern by Leedra Scott-Heirloom Goods on Ravelry. It’s called Smokey Mt. Mobius cowl and was a gift to my granddaughter last year at Christmas. And BTW–I never use straight needles-always use my circulars–can’t stand have the straight needles hitting the arms of my chairs!!
