Book Giveaway~ The Red Collection by Mandy Powers


Thank you, this giveaway has ended.
We are happy to announce we are giving away a signed copy of The Red Collection by Mandy Powers!  This is a great new indie-published knitting pattern book and we have simply fallen in love with the dynamic patterns for knitted accessories worked in a simple color palette of black, white, gray, and red.  The photography is awesome, the color charts are clear and easy to read, and the book includes a great tutorial on how to block your hand knits.  Congratulations to Mandy for publishing her collection of knitting patterns on her own like this- we are seeing so many interesting self-published knitting books this year!

Ziggity Hat

Holly Jean Mittens

Drifty Hat
(this is my favorite!)

To enter, please leave a comment on today's post- a winner will be randomly selected a week from today!
Thank you, Mandy, for providing a signed copy of your book to one of our lucky readers!  The giveaway also includes the digital pattern pack so you can store all of the patterns digitally in your ravelry library!

  12. I'm happy to see designers self-publishing. I'm even happier to see that these patterns are modern and not too simple. I'm so tired of seeing over-girly lace patterns that are just copied out of stitch dictionaries, compiled and then copyrighted. That's not really designing.
