Raglan Hoodie Giveaway

Share Button

Have you had a chance to check out the latest issue of KnitSimple? The Fall 2012 issue is packed with fantastic patterns and includes a fantastic Raglan Hoodie that is knit in our Valley Yarns Berkshire Bulky.

The comfortable hoodie is accented on the cuffs and edges with a darker color. The piping is created by whipstitching the pieces after finishing. You could even try some other color combinations. For a very different look, you could use two very different colors.

This project is knit in pieces and seamed. You pick up the stitches for the hood and knit them after seaming the sweater together. It is sized S-3X with finished measurements of 38 ½” – 52.” It takes 8-13 skeins of Valley Yarns Berkshire Bulky in light blue and one in dark teal.

Would you like to win a kit to knit this sweater? Leave a comment here on the blog with what you most look forward to with the change of seasons. One comment will be randomly chosen and will receive KnitSimple Fall 2012, Berkshire Bulky in light blue and dark teal, and the needles to complete the project. You have until Wednesday, August 1st at 9:00am EDT to comment. We’ll announce the winner after that.

    am already looking forward to cooler , much cooler temps, walking hand in hand with my  husband of 26 years enjoying the changing colors of the leaves, eating soup and cornbread, having a bonfire, and wearing flannel shirts!!!

    I like the change of seasons because of the beautiful foliage, going to fairs, and having cooler weather to knit in :) plus it means my annual Webs excursion isn’t far away ;)

  • Tyjochay

    I love the way the wind changes. It tells you change is coming. And the way the sky colors turn somber. Pure bliss!

  • suzan

    the fall skies; the opportunity to knit with wool with abandon for the imminent winter?

  • Megan Wright

    I can’t wait for the cool crisp air!  It’s been so hot here this summer that I’m ready for cooler days where I can drink hot chocolate and snuggle up with a cozy blanket and knit.

    I even saw a few leaves changing in my neighborhood……..geese heading south.    Time for fall knitting.

    With the changing of the seasons, I look forward to the myriad of beautiful fall colors in rust, gold, brown and red.  I am attracted to fall colors and interpret my feelings in the yarns I love to select for new fall and winter knitting.  What I am most looking forward to this year is the birth of my first grandchild, a little girl who will be born very near Christmas.  I am busy knitting many hats, blankets and sweaters, but, with the cooler weather approaching, I will feel inspired to knit even more.

    For me fall is all about apple picking and pumpkin flavored everything.

    Wearing the sweaters I knit this summer to all of the harvest fairs

    The first day of a new semester.

    I love the change in seasons when golden brown leaves are dropped to be refreshed and green next spring, when skies are gray or brilliant blue, and when the smell of the soil changes to show how progress is being made to melt white snows to dark vibrant earth.

  • Jencie

    I enjoy watching the scenery change, and the temperatures cooling (summer is my least favorite season:)

  • Schwipknits

    I look forward to the fall because the leaves on Minnesota’s north shore are beautiful. Also fall means the heat is over! I hate the heat.

    I can not wait for the seasons to change!!! I have lupus and any uv exposure triggers my autoimmune response. Long pants and long sleeves, scarves, hats, etc, in South Louisiana at 100 degrees and 90% humidity is not fun.

  • Vap55

    I look forward to to the smwll of Autuman and the beautiful tramnsformations of the trees the colors always amaze me.

  • Pliv44

    Although I hate washing them in May,  I love knitting and wearing all my wool sweaters once the Fall brings lovely cool New Englanfd days.

  • Jdewal

    The weather is cooler and makes sleeping nicer. The changing of the leaves and the feel of winter just around the corner.

  • Jenn R

    Crisp mornings, bright colors, hearty soups and breads, and getting to wear sweaters again! Fall is my favorite season!

  • Shari H.

    Warm apple crisp, the crunch of Autumn leaves underfoot, a handknit scarf wrapped around my neck…these are a few of my favorite things!

  • Ginny

    I love the cooler weather.  Perfect for hiking to explore the changing woods.  Also it is time for wearing wool!  

  • Mmesser_gcs

    I love the cooler temperatures of fall and the colors of the changing season, giving me more opportunity to work on my larger projects.

  • Carmen Nuland

    This year I’m dying for some cooler weather. It’s been beastly and dry. I might even look forward to some sn*w.

  • Nath Aman

    After the hot summers, i’m looking forward to winter with some bright colors. I love making my family’s winter wear on my own. So, I am looking for some stylish yet cozy woolens. But most of all I like knitting and crocheting dresses for my daughter….

    The crisp crunch of fallen leaves lightly frosted breaking thru the waffer thin crust of ice on the soggy trail thru the woods.

  • Marthasofie

    Fall soups!

    Going to finish the Afghans its been too hot to work on and get started on chtristmas gifts

  • Gibsongirlvictoria

    I love the crisp air, the crunch of leaves, the sounds of my.children laughing in the yard. Hiking through the woods & apple picking. Coming home on a brisk evening, seeing the warm glow of lights through my windows, opening the door and having the warm, sweet, cinnamon apple pie scent wash over me. Settling down on the couch and sifting through my basket of yarn. The textures and colors silently calling to become a scarf, a pair of mittens, or a sweater for someone I love.

  • starknitter

    I know it is time to enjoy wearing the hand-knit sweaters.

  • Steph Neid

    I look forward to the change of seasons as an affirmation of the natural cycles–the productive tasks of summer gardening edges into knitting time but fill your cupboards with the taste of summer during winter months when knitting ramps up again.  Just like a large knitting project, the garden comes to fruition and there is an anticipated time of rest and reflection on a finished project.

  • Hollybowan

    I LOVE layering my clothes! I look forward to wearing turtlenecks, scarves, cowls, shawls, vests….. I get really happy that time of year.

  • Bearkat2

    I love the way the deciduous trees start turning to vivid colours of yellow, red and orange; shedding their leaves with the wind, the crunch of leaves underfoot and the warm cozy sweaters that I can wear when I am outdoors enjoying all that fall brings!

  • Gorget1234

    Looking forward to not having to justify yarn craft in warm weather to non-believers.

  • Greyowl60

    I look forward to the crisp, chilly evenings after work - when I curl up on the couch with a cup of coffee and a lap full of yarn and knit, knit, knit. Mmmmmm, sounds like heaven! 

  • Asteride

    I look forward to fresh breeze.

  • Liabass

    I am looking forward to beautiful fall colors, the smell of the spices as I go back to baking, the scent of  tea or coffee in the morning, and the feel of alpaca, wool, yak, etc yarn going throuhg my fingers. I am anticipating the tastes, smells, colors, and the feelings of fall, and
     I find myself longing for these days more and more.

  • Lpatrick_99

    I look forward to walking in the morning fog with my knit hat and fingerless mitts, feeling the nip of cooler mornings. Smelling the clean ocean scent and seeing the fall colors with dew on the leaves. I enjoy watching the sun break through the fog from inside my warm kitchen filled with the smell of fresh brewed coffee.

    The summer breezes reminds me to knit with lighter weight yarn-or on bigger needles with soft cotton/silk blended yarns.
