Glaswegian Giveaway!

Monday morning is always an excellent time for a giveaway!

Glaswegian is beautiful!


This morning thanks to the generous folks at Berroco we’re giving away a yarn pack of Istex Plötulopi to make Amy Christoffers divine sweater Glaswegian in the  brand new Deep Fall Knitty!

Plötulopi is lighter than air and knits up at a 5-ish stitches to an inch gauge. That gauge combined with an Icelandic style makes for a lickity-split-quick knitting sweater, perfect for kicking off fall knitting.

Glaswegian is one of those perfect sweater that will never get put away all fall and winter because you’ll wear it nearly everyday.

    This looks like a lovely sweater and beautiful yarn. I’ve never knit with brand before. It would be beautiful on my daughter.

  2. Patricia

    I love knitting and would love to knit a sweater with this beautiful yarn. Thanks for the chance to win.

    This sweater is an excellent candidate for the wooden toggles from the button collection I inherited from my grandma!

    I have wanted to make an Icelandic sweater for awhile now. Maybe this one for my daughter. Lovely colors!

    I love this sweate! I would love the chance to develop my stranded colorwork skills. Thanks for the opportunity.

    I’ve been interested in getting into colorwork for a while. This one does it beautifully. I like how the design flows between the colors.

    I’ve been trying to decide on a sweater to start on now that the weather’s getting cooler, but haven’t been able to settle on anything. Until now—I think this is the winner!

    I love the idea of a sweater as light as air! I’m intrigued by the yarn and the design. I grew up wearing colour work sweaters and would love to make this!

  9. Suzanne Turgeon

    I love this pattern! The design, colors and a cardigan! I am a big fan of Berroco yarns but haven’t tried this one yet.

    The last sweater I knit was a lopi pullover. I have been daydreaming of a cardigan every since. When I saw Glaswegian in the fall Knitty I knew I’d found the one. 🙂

    My very first colorwork project was a hat knit out of plötulopi. It’s a little fiddly to work with because it’s unspun, but the finished fabric is lovely. I lightly felted the finished hat and it’s impressively water resistant.

  12. Emily

    I’m not sure if I’ve ever knit anything with an unspun roving-type yarn. I’ve always thought it sounds like it would make for a fantastic sweater, and I’d love to give it a try!

    My first knitting project was a sweater with chunky Icelandic wool. 3 weeks knitting (over a spring vacation in college) and it was done. People still laugh when I wear it. This is so much more sophisticated!
