Holla Knits Blog Tour & Rolling Thunder Giveaway

It's my favorite time of year. It's fall and, more importantly, it's time for the newest edition of Holla Knits!

I've been a subscriber to Holla Knits since the beginning, so I couldn't be more proud to have my first pattern design, Rolling Thunder, featured in Fall/Winter 2013.

 This southwestern-inspired yolk sweater is the perfect fall knit. It looks great on it's own or even layered over a button down, it's flattering with enough details to make it fun to knit. The stranded colorwork on the shoulders flies by - you can't wait to see the details come together! I can't wait to see the color choices people make when it they cast on.

I used Knit Picks Brava Sport in Sienna and Seashell for my original sample. I like the softness of Knit Pick's acrylic and loved the color options that line offers. The second sample features the absolutely stunning yarn of masi|knits. Their Nantucket colorways highlighted just how versatile this design can be - you can really make it your own!

  7. I actually bought my yarn and pattern on KnitPicks last week! I chose the Wool of the Andes colors Sagebrush and MaiTai Heather.

  8. I love the look of black with an accent color such as teal. I think that would be gorgeous.

  9. What a cool pattern! I have yet to knit a pullover. I think I'd knit it in a cream with red accents.
