  2. Amrey Says:

    I love anything Ann Budd does.

  3. Cindy Hawk-Souppa Says:

    cowls are my style…I love the versatility…can be capelets, neckwarmers, or hoods…they allow for so much personalization in length and width…and you don’t have ends that fall forward and drip in your way!

  4. Sherri Napier Says:

    I love to make scarves, they make great gifts for Christmas. Just knitting my first cowls.

  5. Estella Says:

    I wear cowls a lot! However, a good LONG scarf is wonderful too!

    I like to wear small shawls as scarves…so lightweight yet so cozy!

    Scarves always make the nicest gifts. They are easy to make, but can be as intricate or simple as you want.

  8. Leslie Latham Says:

    Pretty! I love wearing scarves as a way to show off my brooch collection, as well as keep my neck warm in frosty Northeast temps. And they are fantastic gifts for others!

    I’ve knitted so many of the scarves from Scarf Style I – I’m ready for a new challenge

  32. Jess Miyasato Says:

    Scarves are my go to project lately. With a toddler and one on the way I don’t have time for any big projects. I would love some new patterns to try out!

  33. Suzfisc Says:

    Would love to win

  34. Edie Says:

    I think right now my favorite type of scarf to wear is a wider longer wrap. I’m cold all of the time lately because I am having chemotherapy. I love to knit scarves of all types as gifts. They always fit! There are so many great patterns, I rarely knit the same one twice!

  35. marvalice1 Says:

    I love long, lacy scarves. In the bay Area, it doesn’t get too cold, and I love knitting lace, so it’s my go-to pattern. I make my scarves long so they can wrap around as much as I want them to. Scarf Style 1 was great – I’ll love Scarf Style 2!

  36. Michelle Chua Says:

    Airy Lace Scarf. It is light and airy for those summer evenings in New Zealand, plus I like how it has a channel closure. Just in case its a windy BBQ day!!

  37. Gloria Monacelli Says:

    I love cowls..and shawlettes…great for gifts!
    And I love Ann Budd!

  38. Beverly Says:

    I love scarves with a definite design element to them. Also, I like cowls that are especially warm and cuddly. Thank for offering this book as a prize.

  39. LorRae Says:

    Have the first, would love the second

  40. PuddleThumper Says:

    how did you know i NEEDED more scarves in my life? Cowls, lace and i love the two-tone brioche.

  41. Kat Gatzke Says:
