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.):

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. The first pattern I would make is Trailblazer; I have the perfect skein of yarn for it (purchased from TLE, of course).

  2. Shadowlines or flights of color are my first choices! They are lovely! (Fat finger phone typiiing messed up before.)

  3. I’d try “Colour Trail” because it would be my first try at knitting with more than one colored skein!

  4. I think I’d make Flight of Colour first…but I don’t think that’d be the last one I’d cast on … love the patterns!

  5. Umm…one? What about those of us with start-itis and have several concurrent projects? I think I would start with Flights of Colour and quickly add another…

  6. shadowlines looks heavenly, can think of several friends to make and wrap up for a first day of winter gift!
