I recently rereleased one of my older patterns the Ribbed Beanie, for a newer version of this pattern that calls for one hank of Bijou Basin Lhasa.  SAVE 15% OFF the Ribbed Beanie pattern today through Sunday, June 21, 2015 Pacific Time – No coupon code needed, Sale on Ravelry only.

Finished Measurements:

Length: 8”
Circumference: 22”

Size 4 U.S. needles

1 Hank Bijou Basin Ranch (250 yards, 75% yak down, 25% bamboo), shown in #49 Dinna Fash.
1 Hank Pagewood Farm Glacier Bay (100% Superwash merino wool, 450 yards), shown in Denim.

24 sts and 30 rows = 4” in stockinette stitch

This is a gorgeous blend of 75% yak (my personal favorite) and 25% bamboo.  With 250 yards to a hank and making this a one skein project, how can you go wrong?  Not only is this yarn deliciously soft, and supple but the yak down yields a gorgeous halo to the yarn which gives your finished project a hint of delicacy.  Even though this yarn seems dainty it actually pretty strong.  The 25% bamboo content allows for the fiber blend to take on rich and saturated colors and allows for the strength you need in your knitting and finished projects.  It also allows for wonderfully unexpected stitch definition, which made this the perfect yarn for the Ribbed Beanie pattern. The good people over at Bijou Basin sent me an extra hank of this Lhasa yarn.  I was going to knit another Ribbed Beanie out of it, but I thought I’d share the joy that is Lhasa with you folks.  One lucky winner will win one yummy hank of Bijou Basin Lhasa.  Learn how you can win here!

I am proud to present to you the Striped Tooth Shawl.  This is one of my newest patterns and has quickly become one of my favorites as well.  I have decided to kick off a KAL (Knit Along) for this pattern on the Ravelry group and I hope you’ll be able to join us. Please read below for more details and how to win the KAL PRIZE!!!

We will get started on the KAL on the thread in the Ravelry group on Saturday, March 15th. Here we can share photos, questions, comments, etc.   The KAL will end Saturday, April 5th so that we can get a little bit of a break before we jump into the next one.

Three active KAL participants will receive a prize. The first place winner will receive a copy of Stitch Mountain signed by Laura Zander and myself as well as two skeins of Rowan Felted Tweed in the orange and white color featured in the Slip Stitch Beanie pattern. The second and third place winners will receive three pattern PDFs (from my Ravelry store) of his/her choice.

Wondering what it means to be an active participant? The participant must post progress and pictures frequently in this thread, at least once a week. To be eligible to win you must finish your Striped Tooth Shawl on or before the KAL end date and post a picture by then as well.  Also please feel free to post pictures on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram and link back to those pages as well.  The more you post and the more places you post will increase your chances of winning.

Those are all the rules, and as always play nice (but you always do). Please feel free to ask any questions about anything related to the KAL in this thread. I look forward to getting started on this piece!
