Ysolda Teague Patterns Giveaway

Its finally here!
From innovative designer Ysolda Teague comes the new pattern book,
Little Red in the City
.


Months, or in the case of one sweater, years, in the making it’s now almost here. Part pattern collection featuring 7 sweaters, part resource book Ysolda shares all of her tips for creating successful sweaters that perfectly fit your body.

And the book includes instructions how to access the PDF files for the patterns.


Ysolda designed each pattern with different body types in mind and here she shares her inspiration..."One thing that’s always bothered me is that it’s great to find a pattern that includes your size but if you’re not close to the size of the model it can be hard to visualise how it’s actually going to look on you. No matter what grading decisions the designer makes, the same pattern is always going to look different with different proportions.


When I first thought of doing a book of garment patterns I knew immediately that I wanted to show everything on at least two different models, with different sizes and body shapes. Last year at Tnna I happened to mention this plan and that I wanted to find a model who was actually plus size (as opposed to the modeling world’s idea of plus which is about a 38″ bust) to my friend Amanda who works for Lorna’s Laces and she immediately offered to model. I really hope that you agree that these designs look equally good on both of us and I hope it helps you envision how they'll look on you."

Little Red is now in stock available to be ordered immediately!


And to celebrate the arrival of Ysolda's new book I'm hosting a giveaway for three of her all time favorite patterns: Ishbel, Elijah and Liesel. There will be three winners and each winner will be able to select the pattern they want.

Ishbel

Elijah

Liesel

Liesel is my favorite -- looks gret in so many different yarns/gauges and it's simple yet looks WOW! I'd love to win Ishbel (I already own Liesle!)I get your newsletter, like you on FB, and am on your Rav fan page.

1. I think I should win one of these patterns because I have been admiring that adorable elephant for way too long. I have actually spread the word of both Elijah and Liesel on my blog in the past!
2. I love both Elijah and Liesel. I think it would be really hard for me to pick one if I win.

Ishbel is my favorite because of its versatility--I've seen so many variations that really give an individual touch to it that work so well.

I should win one of these patterns because they're things I've been meaning to knit for ages!

I should win one of these patterns because I need to knit one of them! Hee hee evil laugh

Rose (Sisterrobinson on Rav) said...

I should win one of them because I would love to make any of them. Her patterns are all so lovely.

It would be hard to decide which pattern to choose -- I'd pick one from a hat.

Diane Eskritt said...

My favorite is the ever popular Liesel. I definitely would like to make this sweater.

I also get your newsletter.

One of the toughest aspects of knitting is getting a sweater to fit. How one size fits all from the stores is really hard to believe -- or do we just expect more from ourselves?

Ishbel is a great pattern I have made several times. People love it. I would love to win a Liesel! Thanks for doing this!

Barbara Bonham said...

At 72 yrs old, I want to knit everything there is from Ysolda. I have knit and given away 7 of the Liesel for Nursing home ladie. They are so appreciative and many do not have any family. I want to adopt them all!

Knittingdancer on Ravelry said...

1. The reason I should win this contest is because I like or should say love winning contests.

Knitmish on Ravelry said...

I think I should win one of these patterns, particularly Ishbel, because I love making shawls, and I have lots of nice yarn in my stash that would look fabulous as Ishbel :)

Knitmish on Ravelry said...

My favourite pattern of these three is Ishbel, simply because I love shawls, and the lace part is very very pretty!

1. I feel that I should win one of these patterns because as a new knitter I love finding beautiful patterns and have met with Ysolda during the Great Rhody Yarn Crawl in April.

2. All the patterns are amazing, but I think my favorite is Liesel. It's a beautiful cardigan that is both romantic and whimsical. It reminds me of the past.
