Knit Picks holiday yarn giveaway!

It’s the holiday season, and we know many of you have been busy the last couple of months knitting gifts until your fingers are numb. If you’ve blown your yarn budget on yarn to knit gifts for other people, and you’re slightly worried your friends and loved ones didn’t get the memo about buying you a Knit Picks gift certificate for your stocking, we’ve got the perfect holiday gift just for you. Free Knit Picks yarn!

Now wait. Keep reading. There are important details to come, and if you don’t follow the instructions below, you’ll take yourself out of the running.

We’ve picked 3 of our favorite patterns from the new Winter Knitty, and we’re going to pick 1 lucky Knit Picks customer per pattern and give them the yarn they need to knit that project. We’ve already picked the perfect Knit Picks yarn substitution for each project, and we’ve selected three colors for each winner to choose from- a warm, a cool, and a wildcard. To enter to win, comment back with your Ravelry name (and/or blog URL), which of these 3 Knitty patterns you’ve got in your queue and want to knit next, and the reason why you picked that pattern. Enter before Friday, December 19th.

Our three favorite patterns from the Winter Knitty (in no particular order!):

Amused by Jordana Paige in Swish Worsted
Surface by Norah Gaughan in Merino Style
Everybody Knows by Weaverknits in Wool of the Andes Kettle Dye

I will contact the winners by private message to find out your size, mailing address, and which color you’d like. Our in-house judges will pick winners based on their written reason why they want to knit the pattern and the level of their activity on Ravelry and/or in the blogosphere. All 3 winners will be announced on the staff blog on Monday, December 22nd. So just comment on this post, and get ready to curl up in a cozy chair, needles in hand, and unwind while knitting something super indulgent for yourself for free! Good luck and happy holidays! <
