Handbound: Your Thursday Dose of Chronicle Craft
Knitting Pattern Contest Winners
Five big huge congratulations go out to the winners of our intarsia knitting contest! We got so many amazing submissions to win a spot in our next knitting book, Picture Perfect Knits by Laura Birek. (Apparently gnome-like creatures and desserts are very popular motifs for knitwear.) It was hard to choose just five, but Christina and I painstakingly narrowed the entries down to the following awesome intarsia patterns. We’ll print them in Laura’s book, alongside patterns from famous artists like Sarah Neuburger, Denyse Schmidt, Jenny Hart, and more.
Check out the raw wool talent:
My Gnomies by Andrea Tomlinson
Peacock Paisley by Alice Merlino
The Fly by Manuela Tinoco
Yoga Aum by Tracy Jen
Robot by Aoife Clifford
Nice work you guys!
Picture Perfect Knits will be on shelves in Fall 2008.
Thanks so much for the great crocheting suggestions and project ideas you’ve all been sending me! Keep them coming. I’ll announce a winner of the Chronicle crochet package next week. Email your ideas and suggestions to: Christina_Loff@chroniclebooks.com.
