Clotheshorse Yarn and Pattern Giveaway!

As we approach the release of the premiere issue we want to share a sneak peak of the pattern Sundown by Heather Dixon. Along with this taster we are offering our very first giveaway! The grand prize winner will receive the yarn and pattern required to knit Sundown, and another lucky winner will receive the pattern.

This cozy scarf is knit using Knit Picks Comfy Fingering yarn and Crystal Palace Panda Silk. The combination of fibers gives this scarf a beautiful drape and makes it extra snuggly. The crisp red and white checks remind us of pretty gingham dresses, picnics, and warmer weather as we approach Spring. The fringe at either end of the scarf is a lovely detail that completes this Spring-time look.

 

Do you want to knit this gorgeous scarf? Of course you do! Sundown received so many compliments when we attended TNNA last month. Admirers noticed it from across the room and wanted to inspect and fondle it! Follow the steps below to enter our first Clotheshorse giveaway for your chance to win the yarn and pattern to knit your very own Sundown! All you need to do is:

1)     Sign up to receive blog and newsletter updates from Clotheshorse, and

2)     Post a comment below telling us why you want to win and what you love about this scarf.

We look forward to reading all your comments and will select a winner on Sunday, February 12, 2012, 6pm EST.

I have never been tempted by entrelac before, so I have to say this is a first. It's the perfect transitional scarf, and I can see it actually getting year-round wear. I would give it a wonderful home, I promise!

What a brilliant use of entrelac! I just love the woven look of the color combo! ...can't wait for more patterns. I hope I win.

Well, if one is to start knitting, then it's best to start with an outstanding project. Beautiful scarf!

I would love to win this Sundown scarf! I have four sisters and am always looking for something new and fashionable to knit for them. As Scots, we all love plaid and wear it frequently. Each one of my sisters would love to wear this scarf!

Never having tried entralac, this scarf, in shades of blue (my favourite colour) would give me the opportunity to make something I know I would enjoy for ever...I look forward to being the winner

I want to win because I just learned entrelac and this scarf is absolutely awesome! and red and white are two of my favorite colors and the colors of the university where I work.

Fresh and vibrant take on an old, beloved classic. This says sunny days and picnics, fun, friends and family.
