Four great Manos patterns = four great prizes

Four beautiful Manos patterns, four beautiful prizes

The nice people at Fairmount Fibers/Manos del Uruguay Yarns recently pointed me to their pattern archive, which I somehow hadn’t explored before and which turned out to be a treasure trove. They also expressed an interest in giving one of you some yarn. There happened to be four accessory patterns in their recent releases that I especially liked, so I arranged a four-prize giveaway with them — lucky you! Here are the patterns I zeroed in on:

  • TOP LEFT: Rocha beret pattern designed by Heather Zoppetti, knitted in aran-weight Wool Clasica (+Ravelry)
  • TOP RIGHT: Salto fingerless mitts pattern designed by Christine Marie Chen, knitted in DK-weight Silk Blend (+Ravelry)
  • BOTTOM LEFT: Sandalo shawl pattern designed by Corrina Ferguson, knitted in fingering-weight Fino (+Ravelry)
  • BOTTOM RIGHT: Vanda hat pattern designed by Anne Kuo Lukito, knitted in worsted-weight Maxima (+Ravelry)

So the deal is, we’re giving away one of each of these four patterns, along with the yarn for knitting it, in the winners’ choice of colors. To enter, do the following—

Step 1: Decide which one of these four patterns is your favorite, click the Ravelry link next to it and add it to your Ravelry favorites.
Step 2: Come back here and leave a comment saying which pattern you’re playing for, along with your Ravelry username.

You have until Sunday night to enter. I’ll choose a winner at random for each of the four patterns and announce the winners here at the beginning of the week. Please note* that this giveaway is for people with U.S. mailing addresses only, and is limited to one entry per person, as described above.

So here we go — which one will you choose?

*Note also that Manos is providing the prizes for this giveaway, but the opinions expressed are strictly my own and freely offered. Employees of Fairmount/Manos are not eligible to enter, nor are any of my family members.
