For Fall 2015, I will be running a Design-A-Long EXCLUSIVELY with my newsletter subscribers. A Design-A-Long is something I have been wanting to do for a very long time. I am so excited to finally being able to do this. Click here to join in the fun.
WHAT IT IS:The concept for the Design-A-Long is similar to a "choose your own adventure" where for each section of the hat, you decide. For each section of the pattern, I will send out to newsletter subscribers 2 or 3 stitch patterns and you, the knitter, get to choose which option you want to make.
HOW WILL IT WORK:Each Friday for 4-weeks, starting October 2nd, I will send out to subscribers-only instructions containing stitch options.
Week 1: Cast On stitch amount for multiple sizes along with brim stitch options.
Week 2: Body of the hat
Week 3: Crown decrease options
Week 4: Finishing and Project page update.
WHAT YOU GET:At the end of the Designs-A-Long, you will have a completed hat, or 2, 3. Based on the number of stitch patterns, you will be able to easily make 3 different hats.
If you are interested in the designs and you are not a newsletter subscriber, the patterns will be available as an e-book on Ravelry for sale for $12 after the Design-A-Long ends.
If you would like to get the designs for free, join us during the Design-A-Long.
WHAT ELSE YOU GET: BonusBeyond getting 3 hat patterns for free, I want to encourage as many knitters to give this a try, so of course, there will be AWESOME yarn giveaway.
So far, here's what you can be chosen for:
<<-- 1-Skein Anzula Cricket in colorway Pesto (DK; 80% Merino, 10% Nylon, 10% Cashmere; 250 yards / 114 grams)
1-Skein Fiesta Boomerang in colorway Great Horned Owl (Aran; 100% Merino; 255 yards / 113 grams) -->>
My list is pretty small (but FABULOUS) at the moment, so I have 2 yarns picked out for the giveaway. If we get more than 20 participants, I will increase the number of winners.
YARN GIVEAWAY: How to QualifyTo be entered in the random number generator giveaway drawing, you must:
