Knit Play Colour and a Giveaway!

Knit Play Colour 1Our designer friend Louise (who does Inspiration Knits patterns and has designed for our Giftables Club) has published her first book! Called Knit Play Colour, it is full of wonderful designs and ways to adapt them when you want to “play” with the pattern a bit and make it more your own. Lots of options and choices. For more about Louise, you can read the Designer Spotlight blog post that we did on her last year. One thing about Louise – she is always thinking up great new variations for her patterns, and this book showcases that.

I found several “must make that” patterns as I was going through the book. Here are just a few of my favorites:

Flights of Colour (I love patterns that use more than one color. It’s fun to come up with different combinations):

Flilghts of Colour

Colour Trail (This looks like a great pattern for multi-color yarn. And I always have a lot of that.):

Colour Trail

Shadowlines (That just looks luscious to wrap up in, doesn’t it?):


Heart Deco (Pretty cowl and cool heart design in there.):

Heart Deco

Louise has offered to give one of our blog readers a free e-book copy. Just leave a comment below and tell us which pattern you’d pick first out of the book (see the patterns here and/or buy yourself or a friend a copy at this link). We’ll draw a name next week to win the free copy.

  1. This looks like a fun book! I really liked the Flights of Colour pattern. Wouldn’t that look great with a bunch of Loopy Hues gradient mini-skeins? 😉

  2. ooohh…would i ever love to win a copy of louise’s book!! how to pick just 1 to cast on first… resonate? heart deco? umbra? they’re all great!! 🙂

  3. Hmm to pick one would be too difficult but if i had to I would go with the one called colour trail I know I have yarn this would be perfect for

  4. I’d probably go with Color Trail or Shadowlines. I have a TON of multi colored yarn, and I love working with cables.

  5. Wow! Love all the patterns. I am having a hard time choosing between Affinity, Color Trail, and Yarn Tamer. They all look so lovely.
