    The Brioche Branches scarf is something I’d love to try to make. If I’m not skilled enough to make that one, the Two-Tone Brioche could be the one for me.

  • Lisa

    How Lovely! I particularly like the plum shawl; it looks so light, airy, and elegant! I have been trying new scarf and shawl patterns to build my skills and techniques–my new hobby is quickly becoming my new obsession!

  • Maryellen C

    I love any kind of scarf.

  • Donna Gerber

    I love all kinds of scarves. They are a great addition to help pull an outfit together and are so cozy too.

  • Sue

    I love the Sylvie Scarf in this book! Lots of nice projects. My favorite scarves are reversible.

  • Miranda Gaines

    i love scarves and cowls, anything to keep me warm in the winter!

  • Diana C

    I love a good cowl or infinity scarf to keep my neck warm – especially an infinity scarf because I can wrap it around my neck twice, and I don’t have to worry about it coming untied. It’s an added bonus if the pattern is knitted in the round!

  • Amanda Martinson

    I am an equal opportunity scarf wearer – I would make any of the designs and love trying out new stitches using scarves.

  • Cheryl

    Yes. yes. yes. I really do need some new scarves. Please. Need a new book. Thank you and I have my fingers crossed.

  • Scott M.

    My scarf style evolves. Currently, it’s cabled or lace.

  • Cindy Bukach

    I prefer long and lacey – It makes me feel chic.

  • Maura Cunningham

    I love a nice silk cowl–soft and warm at the same time!

  • GinaC

    Wow, so many lovelies in that resource! Eufala and Brioche Branches are very tempting!

  • Jill

    Wish this were mine!!

  • Keri

    I love the cowl on the cover. And that funky looking scarf with the tassels hanging down. Thanks for the chance to win a present for me!!

  • cnuland

    I like shorter but lacy scarves. I’m also beginning to really like cowls (asimplehomestd on Rav)

  • Tracy H

    I love scarves, knitting as well as giving as gifts. I am always looking for new patterns for my family and friends. My favorite I must say is faire isle, love the colors and pattern.

  • c8h10n4o2

    I’m really obsessed with brioche knitting, especially for scarves. I always get way more credit than I’m due for them. (Ravelry: caffeine72)

  • Lindy Lou

    Lindy Lou, My little cottage industry is called Skeins to Scarves “n” Such-so scarves are my thing. Always respecting copyright, existing scarf patterns give many ideas-would like Scarves 2 added to my library. Thanks.

  • griffgirls

    I’m a fan of cowls! My girls where all types of scarves.

  • kmwriter

    Nice prize!

  • KimW

    I have become partial to cowls because they are so easy to wear (and more difficult to lose!), but I love that multi-colored scarf with the braided tassels.

  • Karen

    This book is on my wish list. My favorite thing to knit is a scarf. I love to experiment with different yarns and needle sizes. Scarves make an easy project to take along when I travel. They are fun and make great gifts!
