This week’s spring fever book giveaway is actually spring like since it features a book for a cotton yarn!
Ella Rae Phoenix yarn is a 100% Egyptian Cotton yarn that comes in 182 yard hanks and has a suggested gauge of 4.5 sts per inch on a US7 needle. There are 12 new colors this season, bringing the total colors to 48!
It is soft, but had great stitch definition. Really a beautiful yarn for either your warm weather projects or year round projects if you are avoiding wool. The worsted weight gauge means you’ll finish projects in a decent amount of time as well.
I selected this Phoenix book for the giveaway because it has patterns for the entire family. There is also a good mix of easy and complex patterns to keep you interested.
This beret and scarf are two of the patterns for women. There is also a nice cardigan (with pockets!) and a pretty bag. The beret takes just one hank of Phoenix, while the scarf takes two.
The Casey cardigan is a pretty, cabled, v-neck cardigan for the young lady in your life. It will help keep her warm when those evening at the beach (or in the backyard) get a little cool. Let her select the color to be sure she embraces it.
For the young man in your life there is the Cairo sweater, while the grown up guys can get the Stuart sweater. The stripes echo each other so they are coordinated, but not actually matching. Of course, if even that subtle design is too much for you or your guy, just drop the stripes and make a plain sweater.
The new colors of Phoenix include some great neutrals, so there is bound to be a color combination you can agree on.
You can see more pictures of the designs in this book here.
Ten randomly selected people will each receive a copy of this book. (US residents only. Void where prohibited.)
You know the drill. Leave a comment on this blog post before April 2 to be entered in the drawing.
Tell me your favorite design from this book, or what your favorite Ella Rae book is (you can see them here).
