Week #1 – Winner Chosen on October 10
Week One’s lucky winner will receive the pattern for Indulgence Mohair Socks, as well as three balls of Jo Sharp Rare Comfort Kid Mohair in the cozy infusion-dyed Earl Grey color.
The Indulgence Mohair Socks are a lovely and light knee length sock that you may never want to take off. Jo Sharp Rare Comfort Kid Mohair has just the right amount of fluff! It’s an exquisite and luxurious, feather light yarn made from the finest of Kid Mohair, plus a little polyamide to strengthen it so your socks will withstand plenty of wear. Rare Comfort is 80% Kid Mohair, 5% Wool, 15% Polyamide. The socks are one size fits most and they knit up quickly on a set of US 7 double pointed needles. Your feet will thank you!
Week #2 – Winner Chosen on October 17
Let’s talk about Jo Sharp’s Silkroad Ultra. This deliciously chunky, cuddly yarn is so super soft, it knits up like whipped cream. The colors are rich and sophisticated in a perfect winter palette. Your projects will move along quickly as it knits fast on US size 10.5 needles. Silkroad Ultra is a snuggly and warm blend of 85% wool, 10% silk, and 5% cashmere. The silk gives just a bit of sheen. It’ll keep you very warm, but will still feel delicate against the skin.
Week two’s prize includes three 50g (60 yd) balls of Jo Sharp Silkroad Ultra in the elegant grey Cement. Don’t let the name fool you, this color is anything but cold or hard. It’s a lovely fall and winter neutral that will fit any style.
You’ll receive enough yarn to make your choice of one of two patterns included:
The Ultra Cable Cowl, which is a soft chunky cable cowl that can be worn in a single loop or doubled up.
Or, the Double Moss Beanie/Ribbed Twist Beanie pattern, which includes two hat versions in Silkroad Ultra, great for men or women.
The slouchier Moss Beanie gives the novice knitter an opportunity to master circular needles and working in the round, while the Twisted Rib gives a more fitted look, great for guys. Either will keep you warm and stylish all winter long.
We’ll make it easy by narrowing it down, the hard part will be picking just one thing to make!
Week #3 – Winner Chosen on October 24
This week’s prize brings you two Jo Sharp patterns and enough of her luxurious Soho Summer DK cotton yarn to make your favorite! The The Soho Summer DK is 100% cotton, and feels delightfully soft next to the skin. It knits very evenly and shows wonderful stitch detail without feeling heavy, it’s a gorgeous all around cotton for any project.
The Sideways Ribbed Top is a simple ribbed sweater worked in one piece from cuff to cuff. This pattern is suitable for beginners, and seasoned knitters will enjoy the less conventional side-to-side construction. The style is classic and flattering without needing any complex shaping, and the pattern contains instructions for cropped and short sleeved versions as well.
The A-Line Tunic & Fitted Singlet is one of the most popular patterns in Jo’s collection. This pattern includes instructions for a simple summer tunic in two lengths. The top sports a-line shaping and a keyhole opening with button at the back neck. This pattern also includes instructions for a fitted singlet with scooped neckline. Essentially three patterns in one, these designs are well suited for beginners.
Along with the patterns you will receive 13 balls of Jo Sharp Soho Summer DK cotton in color 229 Eclipse, a beautiful midnight blue. This is enough yarn to make the largest size of either of these patterns, take your pick!
