Knitcircus Spring Issue Plus a Giveaway

Share Button

Hi Everyone,

The spring issue of the online magazine Knitcircus went up recently, and it’s definitely worth more than a once-over!

In this issue, you’ll find gorgeous shawls, beautiful garments for adults and kids, and great accessories. There are also a couple crochet patterns – a lovely shawl and a baby blanket and hat set. Here’s just a sampling of what you’ll find.

I’m particularly drawn to the socks that are pictured above. Since the beginning of the year, I’ve been knitting socks, pretty much exclusively to try and catch up on a sock club I’m part of, and I think these would be great to have in my sock pattern collection. They look simple enough to knit up fast, but with enough interest so I actually want to knit them.

Gerberada is a pretty shawlette that is knit in Valley Yarns Franklin. I love the touch of lace on the edge with the addition of a few beads for a hint of sparkle!

The issue is also packed with interesting, informative articles you can read for free, including one on Aran design and another on armholes. There is also a recipe for hazlenut macarons that is quite tempting. To download all of the patterns, it is $7.99, or you can get a 5 issue subscription for $23.50.

We’re giving away two spring issues and one subscription. To win, head on over to Knitcircus and take a look. Come back here and leave a comment with which pattern you want to cast on for right away. Winners will be selected randomly and announced Friday. Please leave your comment by Thursday, February 10th at 11:59pm EST.

Happy Browsing,

Mary

    Choosing is tough! Firey, for sure. Tic Tac is also adorable.

    So many cute patterns! But I think I’d have to do either Alcea or Kalmia first.

  • Garnerdk

    Lots of choices, but I think first I’d like to knit the Dolce scarf out of some dreamy cashmere I have in my stash.

  • EditorABC

    Love Dolce, but MUST make some Zips! It’s like a little cardigan for my coffee. *love* :)

  • Sue G.

    It’s got to be the Gerberara. Love the yarn!

  • Prymnumber

    Oh my! After browsing through the issue, I want to design my own Aran sweater!

    I love doing hats so Kalmia is my first choice. And it’s made with Malabrigo!

    Love Kalmia and it’s made with Malabrigo too.

    I would also like to cast on the slanting rib socks. They look like they would work up nice in Plymouth Happy Feet dk yarn.

    Ooh, I like the Slanting Ribs sock and the idea of a new technique in making them!

  • Julia

    I would like to cast on the Slanting Rib Socks. Thanks for the chance to win all these great patterns.nJulia

  • Yuki

    Without a doubt, I have to start Alcea – it’s so gorgeous and feminine, and I love malabrigo yarn :D

  • Sara

    Had my heart set on Dolce until I saw Zip! Hmmmm, Dolce for me (and a Zip) then lots of Zips for Christmas gifts.

  • Knitklm

    Sweet Tart. Yummy yarn and a quick project for my granddaughter!

  • Dariasmom

    Love the clever little Zip design; so cute and very practical!

  • Adrienne

    Dakota Cowl and the Blue Lupine Mitts. I am in love with that shade of Brooklyn Tweed’s Shelter!

  • Ditetre

    I love Gerberada and just about everything else in this issue… many thanks for the contest!! Fingers and toes are crossed.nditetre(at)mac(dot)com

  • Amanda

    Firey, the shawl on the cover, is my favourite from this issue. I love the autumn foliage colours in the yarn they used. I’ve been considering getting a subscription. This is a great idea for a contest!

  • Krista

    Well, this issue looks like fun. First thing to go on my needles would be Squirm. In the meantime, I am thinking the Hazelnut Macarons would be instantly rewarding~!n
