Now, for the extra treat winner of the Complements Collection giveaway:
Congratulations! Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org to collect your prizes.
I honestly think that most of the time things happen for a reason. Lately, I've been coming across more and more crochet patterns that I like and crochet patterns seem to be flocking to the YOTH site to be shown off to you. Is the universe trying to tell me something?! Is it time to bite the bullet and advance my crochet skills beyond the single chains I know how to do? This giveaway's featured pattern is a crochet one! Yay, for those of you that do crochet or for those of you that are willing to learn! This one's for you! But, don't fret you knitters out there, because the featured e-magazine I'm sharing with you is chocked full knitting patterns for your delight as well.
Meet Clotheshorse. This brand new, charming e-mag dedicates all of its patterns to the seasons hottest trends and fashions, and yes, their publication includes not only knitting patterns, but a portion of them are crochet patterns as well. That's just so great, I can't stand it! Check out their very first Volume 1, Spring/Summer 2012.
Do you remember when Heather Dixon from Army of Knitters was on YOTH? Well, she's co-contributor of this fantastic publication along with her friend and partner, Mindy. Read about how it all started on the Clotheshorse blog here.
I thought I would share with you some of my favorites from the first issue:
The cover design, Sweet Meadows, is my favorite! I love the name, the leafy lace, the delicate details, and it's a cardi!
This Peekamoose pattern looks incredibly comfy and so up my alley. I'm actually going to search my stash this evening to see if I don't have anything on hand to knit this for myself.
And, this Palladium tank is a hit!
Now, I want you to meet this giveaway's featured crochet pattern, Ampelus, and what you have a chance at winning!
I told you I may need to learn how to crochet!! Isn't that gorgeous?! One lucky follower has the chance to win a PDF copy of the Ampelus crochet pattern and three skeins of Claudia Hand Painted Yarns Linen in the same darling colorway, Seashells:
