Jillian’s Book Obsession: A Fit to Flatter Giveaway

I’m a little obsessed with knitters making sweaters that fit and look good on them. I was so excited when I got Amy Herzog’s new book Fit to Flatter for review. After I finished reading it I knew I wanted to do a giveaway.

So here it is, the I-Love-This-Book-I-Know-You-Will-Too, Fit to Flatter Giveaway.

Our prize package includes a copy of the book donated by Melanie Falick Books:

Knit to Flatter, the book

and a yarn pack (in the winner’s choice of color) to knit the Dorica sweater, one of my favorites, donated by Berocco Yarns:

If the commenter answers correctly they will win the book and yarn pack. If you have already won a prize from us in the past year, please do give other knitters a chance.

    Love the hoodie, and I have been looking for a sweater for my DD. This would be perfect.

  2. Niki

    Looks like a greaet book and sweater. I think I am “hard to fit,” can use good help in making my sweaters fit better.

  3. Barb

    I could really use this book. I knit so many sweaters for family and have so many odd sizes. What a wonderful book to come out!

  4. Chris in Durango

    I would love to win a copy of this book! It looks like just the thing I need to feel confident knitting a sweater that fits.

  5. Anne Dixon-Mahatoo

    I would love to have this book. Love Amy’s designs. My current favourite is Caulfield. Cheers.

  6. Linda Suppan

    love Amy. Took her class and have been anxiously awaiting her book. And yarn for a sweater to take advantage of it all. Please pick me!

  7. Kathy

    I’m short and quite curvy, so fit in clothing is always tricky. I would love any kind of help!

  8. Jesse

    I’ve been stalking the sweaters on Ravelry. I’d love to have the book to help my own knitwear shapes!

  9. Carol H

    I could use this book as I knit sweaters for people of all sizes. Thanks for the opportunity to enter the contest.

  10. SusanH

    There’s lots of people who don’t have easy-to-fit shapes that could benefit from the wisdom in this book! Cute hoodie, too!

  11. Amy

    My sister has attended one of Amy’s classes and really learned a bunch. This looks like a great book.

  12. Mortson

    What a great book – I only knit hats and sox for myself since I’m so hard to fit!

  13. Heather N

    I have been wanting to knit a sweater and having this book would be super helpful!~

  14. Beth

    This post just came to the top of my blogs I follow…of course it’s way past midnight as it’s already 8:42 on April 10th. But I just had to say: I love a well made and fitted knit! Nothing is sexier!

  15. Wool Free and Lovin' Knit

    I am a HUGE fan of Amy — took a class from her in Maine a few years ago and immediately after had my very first sweater success. (yeah!)

    I would love a copy of her book as a reference so please add my name to the draw and oh yeah, pick me, pick me!
