Autumn Scarf is live! and a giveaway

My latest design is out! It’s the Autumn Scarf (Ravelry link), part of the 2013 Swish Pattern Collection for KnitPicks. This ultra-long scarf looks great doubled around your neck, and is cozy and comfortable in worsted weight superwash merino wool Swish. It begins with a provisional cast on at the center neck, and is knit out to one leafy end, and then the other. The leaves are my favorite part.

I’m really pleased to have a design in this collection. The collection includes six items, all created for Swish: four sweaters, a throw, and my scarf. Check it out here. All of the patterns are available as individual downloads, and also in an ebook and softcover book.

And the cool thing? I have two ebooks to give away. Enter to win by leaving a comment on this post; tell me what you want to knit first from this ebook! I’ll pick winners at random after October 31.

I’m having a great design year. Next up is a design coming out in Doomsday Knits from Cooperative Press in December. It’s called Thrumviator. I’ll leave it to your imagination for now, but you can probably guess that it involves thrumming! Mmmm, squishy cozy thrums. I have two more designs that will be published in December, and two by the end of January. This is the fun part, because most of the work is done, and I’m just waiting to see it happen. I’m looking forward to sharing all of these with you.

OK, go check out the collection, and then leave your comment for a chance to win the ebook. Let me know what you want to knit first!
