Cold weather sports are a wonderful source of inspiration for knitters; after all, anyone who is outside during the winter months is going to need to stay warm, and we all know that a knitted hat, scarf, or sweater is the best way to do that. The patterns in Stitch Mountain: 30 Warm Knits for Conquering the Cold, a magnificent new knitting book, were designed for some serious winter wear and tear. Each pattern in the book was specifically designed for a winter athlete, several of whom are currently competing in Sochi!
If you love winter sports, or just have to deal with cold weather, these patterns will certainly keep you nice and warm. With designs by some of the top creators in the industry, we just couldn’t keep this fantastic book to ourselves. Starting today, we are giving away one copy of Stitch Mountain each day until February 28, 2014, along with a yummy yarn bouquet featuring all the materials you’ll need to make a beautiful pattern from the book.
