Congratulations! Please contact me at email@example.com to collect your prizes.
There are times when a knitting collection just steals my heart! Often times I like a piece here or there in a set of patterns, but when it comes to Coastal Knits, it's the entire book that captured my knitting love and won't let go. Alana Dakos and Hannah Fettig were on the blog back when their book was originally released last year. So, not only do these two talented ladies have a fabulous adult line of garments and accessories that I love, but they have most recently released a children's mini collection of four sweaters from the original Coastal Knits named Coastal Kids. There is: Little Oak, Mini Water's Edge, Wee Wildflower, & Tiny Rocky Coast. These little sweaters are just about the most adorable l'il things I've ever seen. I'm a sucker for pint-sized knits that look like grown-up sweaters!
All the sweater patterns are sized from 6 months all the way up to 14 years and can be purchased separately on the Coastal Knits site or Ravelry. I had the opportunity to sample knit the two patterns Alana has in the collection (Little Oak & Wee Wildflower), which I thoroughly enjoyed. The CK patterns are expertly written, easy to follow, and simply too sweet not to knit! I have big plans to knit a Gnarled Oak and Little Oak for my daughter and me. Do you think my preteen will run me out of the house with a matching mom & daughter cardi set?! I should probably let her pick out the yarn and color, if I want any chance of her wearing hers while I wear mine!
The Coastal Knits/Kids gals & Happy Knits have put together a beautiful and generous giveaway for you this time!! One Grand Prize Winner will receive yarn from Happy Knits from one of the following choices (in stock colors only) + ALL four of the sweet patterns:
