Giveaway: Iris Schreier’s Reversible Knits + YARN!!!

September 13, 2013, 14:46 pm  Posted by Lark

Today, we’re celebrating the release of Iris Schreier’s Reversible Knits. Now available as a paperback, this book combines the best of a dynamic technique with stunning-yet-wearable projects. Using six key techniques, you can make a whole collection of versatile items. Here are a few of my favorites:

  • Bowery Trio: a cowl and cuff set that’s bold on one side, subdued solid on the other
  • Charcoal Mobius Collar: a sophisticated collar with a striped pattern and a subtle twist
  • ZigZag Posh Shrug: knitted chevrons that go from day to night seamlessly
  • Shoji Wrap: an accessory that’s airy but substantial, romantic but modern

And today, we’re offering a lovely giveaway: up for grabs, a copy of the book and 2 skeins of silk mohair from ArtYarns, perfect for making the book’s light and airy Gossamer Collar project (at right). Come in for a closer look at this yarn, folks…it’s positively sumptuous!

For a chance to win the book and the yarn, simply comment on this blog post: any comment will do! Leave your comment/entry by 11:59 EST on Friday, September 20th. One winner will be selected at random from among all eligible entries and contacted Monday, September 23rd. Click here for the official rules. Thanks to everyone who entered! A winner has been selected and contacted! Stay tuned for another chance to win yarn later this month.
