Noro Cyochin 86% Wool, 7% Mohair, 7% Silk

These 10 lucky people will each receive a ball of Noro Cyochin yarn. Yummy! Color to be determined.

  1. Gail: I would happily knit the baby girl cardigan, hat and toy for my granddaughter.
  2. Dawn M: I love the Batwing Colorblock Topper – Casual but sort of elegant at the same time
  3. Barbara W:I love the textured shawl. That will be my project for winter.
  4. Shirley: I’d like to make #28 the crochet V-neck top and #25 the Capelet! They’re all great!
  5. Susan C: 32-34 Baby Boy Cardigan, Teddy Bear And Hat would be my choice with my brand spanking new grandson in mind.
  6. Cheryl: For both guesses Trellis lace Duster I would def make it and see no reason it wouldn’t be the favorite
  7. Christine M: I like 18, the Mesh Wrap Cardigan.
  8. Jan: I would try the patchwork mesh top. I would take a ball of yarn for the boy cardigan.
  9. Alexis: I suspect Ann’s favorite pattern is the semi-circle shawl since it was selected as the cover photo of the magazine.
  10. Cheryl: Ann’s favorite sweater, I am guessing at # 14. I also love that one and would make it also.

These 10 lucky people will each win a copy of the new Noro book “Sweet Winter”, which features Cyochin, Shiro, and Obi yarns.

  1.  Cynthia: I would have to say #22 the Mesh Banded Pullover….most exciting colors and textures.
  2. Emely: #15 Multidirectional Cap Sleeve Top
  3. Kim: Personally, I’d love to crochet the @27 Cardigan. The choice for Ann was tougher, but I’ll go with the #22 pullover.
  4. Christi: I absolutely love the #24 tank dress. I would love to make that for my daughter.
  5. Kaye: a new knitter, I am thinking I would like to try making a shawl soon…therefore I like the following PATTER N06 – Semi-Circle Shawl From Publication: Noro Magazine #02 (Spring 2013)
  6. Shelley: I love sweater number 22. Love the color and style.
  7. Erica G: The crochet V-neck cardi for both my and Anne’s pic! I love the style!
  8. Liz: I love the cover project – I have this magazine from the iPad app – I am trying to get some other projects done and started for Christmas – and since I have 2 grandbabies on the way – one is a boy and the little sweater will be made for him. Other grandbaby is unknown gender as of now. Ann would probably like #17 – that is my guess.
  9. Reba: I think Ann would like #17 the crop mesh cardi.
  10. Beth B: I really like the textured look of sweater # 22 – Mesh banded pullover. I think Ann’s favorite sweater might be #17 – Cropped Mesh Cardi.

Part of the game was to guess which sweater would be Ann’s favorite. That is “my” favorite and I thought, “Oh, no! I have to select just one?!”

We had 286 entries, so I didn’t compile the personal favorite sweaters, but I whipped through to see what people selected for me.

The top 5 sweaters were:

The Mesh Banded Pullover by Annabelle Speer was the leader with 13 votes! I can see why people like it. This is a pretty sweater and the texture will keep your interest as you’re working.

17-Cropped Mesh Cardi got 11 votes. Photo by Rose Callahan Cropped Mesh Cardi by Cheryl Murray

Number 2 was the Cropped Mesh Cardi by Cheryl Murry with 11 votes. That surprised me so I had to take a second look. I can see the appeal because it is a cute top, but I’d probably want to change the colors.

 

14-Batwing Colorblock Topper got 8 votes Photo by Rose Callahan Batwing Colorblock Topper by Andrea Babb

Coming in at #3 with 8 votes is the Batwing Colorblock Topper by Andrea Babb. I’ll admit I did think this was an interesting top when I first saw the magazine. The pattern covers four bust sizes from 39 1/2 to 50″. Since it would be a little oversized on me I’d probably use it for layering before we got into jacket weather.

#26-Round Yoke Pullover got 7 votes Photo by Paul Amato Capelet by Yoko Hatta

Close on the Batwing Topper’s heels is the Round Yoke Pullover with 7 votes. This is a fun top. Luckily I knit and crochet so I could tackle this one.

#21-Trellis Lace Duster got 6 votes Photo by Rose Callahan Trellis Lace Duster by Shannon Mullett-Bowlsby

Rounding out the top 5 with 6 votes is the Trellis Lace Duster by Shannon Mullett-Bowlsby. Most of the people who voted for it said it was stunning and I have to agree. You’d make an entrance in this garment!

I had as much trouble selecting a favorite as the people who entered the giveaway. Fortunately, I was able to look back at my previous blog post about this issue to jog my memory!

I have to say the Shortrow Colorblock Top by Wilma Peers is still top of my list. The construction looks like a fun challenge and the finished look is great. People would know right away that this top didn’t come from a store!

We do giveaways on a regular basis, so remember to stay tuned here on the blog and our Facebook page.
