The Moon & the Mountain Giveaway

Not only am I announcing a new pattern today, The Moon & the Mountain, but it was designed with a brand new yarn and I've partnered with Craftsy to do a giveaway of the pattern kit too! (Scroll to the bottom of the page if you just want to get to the giveaway.)

UPDATED DEC. 8, 2015

We have a winner! The giveaway is now closed. Thank you for entering!

You probably know that I love designing with giant, chunky yarns. The outsized stitches are so fun and bold, and make a project quick to knit as well! I made the Moon & the Mountain using a draping, soft, chunky Merino yarn - Cloudborn Superwash Merino Bulky. It's great for the chilly weather we've been having here, and would make a perfect gift knit too!

It's worked from the top-down, so the rows just get quicker the more you knit! And the geometric striping pattern is done using the Intarsia method - just twist your colors around each other when you switch. (It's surprisingly simple to do, and this is a great first-Intarsia project.)
