Recently one of my good friends, Linsay, kicked off her design line Little Lippy Ewe by releasing a truly adorable hat appropriately named: Linsay Rocks.


linsayrockshat


I had the opportunity to test knit this cute hat; unfortunately, I don't have a FO picture to show off (bad choice in colors - my fault). I did however knit the hat in an adult size and do still plan on wearing it even if you can't see my stripes very well!

The hat pattern ranges in size from Infant to Large Adult and includes both a beanie and a slouchy version. I knit an adult slouchy if you were wondering (loving the slouchy hats right now)! Not to mention that the original darling pink, black and white version was knit up in the fabulous Dancing Dog Dyeworks self striping Waltz Worsted yarn in a color named… guess… Linsay Rocks! Too cute! So, not only can you knit this baby up using a great self striping yarn, you also get directions to just use two or more separate colors. The great patterning in the hat is achieved with simple slip stitches and is so eye catching if you choose good contrasting colors, ahem! This pattern is cholked full of variety and instruction. What else could you ask for in a hat pattern?!

Linsay has since released two more patterns: Be Aware Hat and Taralyn. My friend, you are on a roll! Keep up the fantastic design work.

Check out what Little Lippy Ewe & Dancing Dog Dyeworks has put together for you this giveaway:


linsayrocks


One Grand Prize Winner has the opportunity to win a fun Linsay Rocks skein from Dancing Dog Dyeworks, a DDD canvas project bag and their very own PDF copy of the Linsay Rocks hat pattern. One Runner Up Winner will also receive a DDD project bag and PDF pattern. How fun!

You can watch for updates and other Dancing Dog Dyeworks news in the Dancing Dog Dyeworks Ravelry page.


I would like you to do the following if you would like to be entered into this week's giveaway:


1. Read over the rules if you have not done so already.

2. Leave a comment on this blog post by the end of Sunday, 3/25/12. What three color combo would you use to knit up a Linsay Rocks of your very own?


I'll randomly pick the winners in 2 weeks and post the results along with the new giveaway, so be sure to check back. Good luck everyone.

Sincerely,

Ve

Raspberry Fields or Sophia - can't decide, such lovely colours! Self-striping yarn totally impresses me.

affiknity said...

Jelly Beans and Summer Sugars will knit up great as this cheerful hat.

Rachelle said...

Beach glass of the ones on the website, but I'd love to see one in Peacock, teal and yellow.

Lisa said...

I love the DDD self striping yarns. I have not had an opportunity to knit with them yet and would love the chance to win this giveaway. Hats are my favorite thing to make so this is perfect.
My favorite colorway is Sophia

Ref said...

Nice pattern! I'd knit it in Lucky Leprechaun as I love greens.

Michele aka yarndoggie said...

I love Waltz, that's pictured. I can't resist hot pink!

Ely said...

If I was using a multicolour DDD, it would have to be Robots, just because robots are awesome. Making a triple combo myself, I'd use raspberry, lilacs and ice pink for a little princess and swap the ice pink with chili verde for myself.

wildkitten.handcrafts said...

I love LOL, Sea Grass Green, Love my Gnomies, Cherry Red and Tangy Orange. Definitly some of those colors!

Ginger said...

I would use Navajo Jerry, but I would love if it had some white in there for more contrast!

Jaime P said...

I like blues, greens and browns together!

Wooly Knits n Bits said...

It's too cute! My grand daughter would love a hat with pink in it. I like the pink/white/black striped yarn.
Thanks for the opportunity to win!

Michelle said...

I love anything with blue and green...maybe a bit of grey or purple, too?

cguard(rav) said...

Navajo Jerry is calling my name

Kassia said...

Gorgeous colorways! My favorites are Navajo Jerry and Mickey's Tardis. :)

Rae Lynne said...

Great job, Linsay! Ishes so very talented. :)

I would knit with something like pink, teal and a mango color of sorts for my little girl, or for my son, blue, green and brown. :)

meeshelle said...

what an adorable pattern!!! I think I would love one in black, lime and purple :D

becca said...

So cute! Love it. I'd love a series of blues and greens or maybe mustard and grey.

amchart said...

I'd show my Iowa Hawkeye pride and knit in black, gold and white!

Kayla said...

Yellow, green and white

Jen said...

Hmmm...I'm thinking blue, green, and white. For spring. :)

DonnaC said...

That's easy! Maisy and Bella (love Diane!) with a coordinating black and white.

Suzanne said...

I just love that jelly beans color but if I were going to choice solids--pink, grey and white.

By the way, Linsay's patterns are very cute. I especially like the cowl.

dclulu on Ravelry said...

Very cute -- love the slipped stitches. I am on a blue and grey kick right now, so maybe dark blue, grey, and yellow.

Nadine said...

Navajo Jerry would capture my spirit.

meppybn said...

Haven't tried DD yarns yet so thanks for leading me to them :) Depending if I had a recipient in mind as to choice of colourways but love zomb2 and waltzlol2 - fun and bright!

Sangeetha said...

grey, orange and blue (dark)

Laura said...

I'd go with a light blue/dark purple/brown combo. So cute!

syd said...

I am a total stalker of the DDD colorways for monster knitting, and have been for a long time! For a hat... I am thinking... emma jerry? It sort of has several colors right there mixed in! It's impossible to choose, seriously! :-)

evan said...

if i were going to use one of their colorways it would be navajo jerry or three other colours would be lime, lemon, and tangerine, for my little brother!

Alice said...

Lovely pairing of pattern and yarn. I'd pick Emma.

Kristen said...

I like the Emma colorway, and if I had to design my own I think I'd use plum, olive and lime. :)

The Werling's said...

Oh this is TOO cute! It would be GREAT for my 6yr old little girl and my 8 month old little girl!
If i could pick 3 color combos, i would pick: grey, pink and teal. =)

knitterlydesigns said...

Cute! I am a sucker for cute little hats. I have a skein of Zombie, which is a very fun boy color.

sparky136 said...

I love the Navajo Jerry so I would use Light Blue, Tan, and Dark Brown. sparky136 on ravelry

I would use black, grey, white.

Sheila said...

I love the Emma colorway - purple, blue and green, what's not to love?

InJuneau said...

I would use either Mickey's Tardis or Navajo Jerry. Such lovely colors!

Brenda said...

How about Teal, Pink and Navy?

(goodstuff on Rav)

CrookedKnitter said...

I'm loving the Navajo Jerry. Mmmm

jennybookworm said...

In the DDD colourways I really like the Emma Jerry and the Zombie -- if I was going to use three solid colours on my own I would use red black and grey -- or maybe cream... so many awesome combos to choose from!

Valkyrie.LHWB said...

I had a terribly hard time deciding!
I love all the colors, but finally narrowed it down to this color combo:

Perfectly Purple
Monster of Many Colors
Pink Ice

I'd alternate stripes of Monster between alternating stripes of Purple & Pink.

Love it!

Knittingdancer on Ravelry said...

My 3 colors would be Daisy, New Lime, and Tangy Orange.

Renee Anne said...

I suppose it would depend on who the hat would be for. If it were going to be my hat: greens, purples, and black or white. If it's for Little Man: bright yellow, baby blue, and probably white.

I'm weird like that.

zed said...

I'd make a neutral tri-color with a berry "pop": Waltz worsted in chocolate brown, grey, and perfectly purple.

Meg said...

The color pictured would go just perfectly with my granddaughter's new jacket;-)

Anonymous said...

Love my Gnomies and Tangy Orange caught my eye immediately. I love the self-striping.
hotknitter

Orli said...

I don't see my favorite color combo in there--browns and pinks and whites, for a Neapolitan ice cream sundae on the little's head!

Hind DP said...

I love the hot pink in the Lindsay Rocks color that is in the picture, my second favorite would have to be the Navaho Jerry color way on the DDD website.

butnostephanie said...

Lime, teal, and white would be pretty I think.

Michelle said...

I like both the Linsay Rocks colorway and the Navajo Jerry!

Christine Lima said...

Orange Blue and White! It would look super cheerful on a grey, chilly winter day!

Frankly Beka said...

I've learned to not say I have a favorite...or least favorite! Cause as soon as I do, it changes and I find yarn that proves me wrong.

Pretty comfortable saying STRIPING yarn is my favorite!
