Knitting Mondays: A SweaterBabe Giveaway Redux

A SweaterBabe Pattern Giveaway

A few months ago we tried to have a SweaterBabe giveaway and something went very wrong with my computer and it ate all of the comments. So let’s try it again!

Spring is trying hard where I live in Michigan, green flower shoots are nestled in snow and hail. The sunshine is a little less watery and the sky is trying for blue.

Katherine Lee a.k.a SweaterBabe has given us some of her lovely patterns as a giveaway, I’m thinking they will help Spring bloom.

SweaterBabe Patterns!

Three winners will get to choose three PDFs each from the SweaterBabe pattern library!

Prize value: $12.00-$24.00

More SweaterBabe Patterns!

You know how it works: leave a comment on this post between now and midnight eastern time, Wednesday April 17th. Three comments will be chosen at random to answer a skill testing question. If the commenter answers correctly they will win the prize. If you have already won a prize from us in the past year, please do give other knitters a chance.

    Let’s hope the gremlins don’t eat the contest this time! I’d love to win some patterns. 🙂

    I’ve been on vacation for a week, so I just love the fact that this is one of the first posts I’ve run across. One of my favorite designers. Thanks!

  3. Barb T

    I’d love to win some patterns. SweaterBabe has some wonderful ones. And no computer glitches this time please.

  4. Kate

    Comment! I love knitting sweaters, and I have been searching for inspiration. I particularly like the green sweater on the left, but then, Sweaterbabe has so many awesome patterns. How will the winner be able to choose?

  5. Carolyn

    This designer is new to me – I’m definitely going to go look at her lovely designs. Thanks for this opportunity!

  6. Candi

    Wow, those are gorgeous sweaters! The difficulty would be in choosing which patterns to take. Thanks for a great giveaway. Bren7na on Rav.

  7. Carrie

    Love the patterns and let’s hope that this time the contest works! Spring has sprung around here and it is lovely!

  8. Rose Kelly

    Please, make spring happen! All of Michigan needs a boost, and the patterns will help! I will use spring colors to help the season along… Thank you.

  9. Anne

    I have been trying to hurry spring by doing some intense spring cleaning, but I am still watching it snow. I’d rather be wrapped in something so pretty and wooly and watching it rain.

  10. sjw

    I think I love the green pattern the most. Not sure if I’m consistent with myself or it’s just spring talking.

  11. Samina

    What great patterns! I stink at making decisions, but I’d struggle through having to pick just 3!

  12. Cynthia RD

    What beautiful designs. I especially like the Samantha Featherweight Shawl. The baby blankets look wonderful, too.

  13. Katharine

    Ooh yes please! I adore the little girl one up top, already. (I have a little girl who clearly needs more sweaters.)

  14. Karen W.

    I’d love to try to win again! It would be fun to be knitting something as lovely as the garments in these patterns!

  15. Amanda

    Sweater Babe patterns are some of my favorites! I am sure I have a few of them queued already and would love to win them.

  16. Christine

    I don’t know that I would be able to narrow my selections down to just 3 of those patterns!!!

  17. Dari

    I really like Katherine’s designs! I am on her e-mail list and really enjoy her new patterns. Choosing only three would be difficult, but I would make the sacrifice! 🙂

  18. Christine

    I love Sweaterbabe! Knitted her vest when I first learned how to knit… Would love a cardi now. 🙂

  19. Kathy H

    Sweater Babe has some gorgeous patterns. The hard part would be narrowing it down to just three!

  20. Barb

    Sweater Babe is one of my favorite designers. I’ve made a beautiful lace vest of hers as well as a few hats and a scarf. I would love to win a pattern.

  21. Bonnie

    Thanks so much for hosting the giveaway! I’m hoping to block a project tonight, which means I’m looking for a new project!!

  22. Steph N

    I think the challenge is going to be choosing only three! Count me in for the drawing, please.

  23. nikkapotamus

    wait, 3 patterns? That’s just awesome! I can get one for me and share with 2 friends! (Or maybe not!)

  24. Kim

    I love SweaterBabe patterns! I can’t remember if I entered the earlier (failed) giveaway, but I’ll sure put my name in for this one.

  25. Katie

    I’d love to knit one of her beautiful patterns. I see several that would be perfect for warmer weather!

  26. Josiane

    So many lovely patterns! I see quite a few that I’d love to knit for myself, and some for my mom, and others for… (I could go on and on like this, they’re really inspiring!) Thanks for offering us a chance at winning a few of these beauties!

  27. Jen

    Nice! But I am curious about the “skills test”. I’d hate to win but then flunk the test, lol!

  28. Megan

    Hadn’t heard of SweaterBabe before, but there’s lots of interesting sweater patterns. I live in sweaters because most offices are frigid.

  29. Peggy

    So, who won the book? Love sweaters but am not quite Babe material any more! But I have girls who are the upper edge of ‘babe’.

  30. Christie

    Failed at prior comment, sorry. I like these patterns a lot. And fwiw, spring is FAILING here in Minnesota. 🙂

  31. Kendra

    So glad to know it’s Spring somewhere. I need a new sweater…there’s still two feet of snow on my garden.

  32. Alix

    Sweater Babe has some great patterns I’d love to try, but I’m not yet a good enough knitter to accomplish them. At least, that’s how I feel. But if I won the pattern, I’d learn!!

  33. Kristy

    I remember being excited about this one the first time around. Now I’m excited for it again! Thanks for the chance, Knitty 🙂

  34. Jo-ann

    I was going to pick my favorite three patterns but it was too hard to choose. Loving some of those cowls and the cute cabled hats and berets…

  35. Ellen Gaynor

    Oh my goodness, what beautiful patterns! I’d love to win, but then I’d have to narrow it down to three!

  36. Beth

    Wow, It would be hard to choose from all the wonderful patterns, but I’d sure like the chance to try!

  37. Kasey

    I’m always on the look out for nicely shaped women’s sweaters. Its probable that I will still buy these even if I’m not picked. 🙂

  38. Madeline

    I love knitty and so appreciate the great giveaways. I’m a long-time fan of sweaterbabe and would be thrilled to win this one!

  39. Aimee

    Spring is well and good here in Virginia. I think the weather just skipped spring and went straight for summer! Better get busy soon, if I want a new sweater for fall. *wink*

  40. Geraldine Scott

    Looks like some delightful knitting ahead for some lucky winners! Thanks for the chance to win!

  41. Karen Russell

    Love the shawl. A lace shawl is my next challenge and since I struggled thru a simple lace stitch on the front of a pr of socks, a whole shawl will be a challenge indeed!

  43. Julia

    SweaterBabe’s designs are wonderful – I have several in my Ravelry favorites, waiting for the inspiration to strike, when I’ll purchase them. Or, if I’m luck, win them!

  44. Knittingdancer (Teresa)

    SweaterBabe has some really great patterns. I love the little girl’s sweater.

  45. Sarah

    Ooooo, it would love to get some new patterns! My six year old needs a new sweater, not to mention me.

  46. Beth Rudo

    I knit a small accessory pattern from SweaterBabe some time ago for a gift, and it was lovely. I’d love to try some of her larger designs.

  47. Keisha

    Perfectly amazing patterns for adding the ‘30%’ homemade challenge to my fall wardrobe. Love it.

  48. Barb B

    those look like fabulous patterns. And I need a sweater pattern to knit. Please pick my name out of the hat.

  49. Pilaar

    Oh please, oh please, oh please, I can see at least 3 patterns there I would love to make!

  50. RichelleCK

    I have a friend who has knit lots of the SweaterBabe patterns. She’s always raving about how well written they are!

  51. Amanda

    I think I might just have to buy the green one at the end of the second row regardless if I win. Gorgeous!

  52. Barbara Stoner

    I believe I have a few of sweaterbabe’s patterns in my favorite list on Ravelry. So fingers crossed.

  53. Maureen

    LOVE Sweaterbabe – thanks for the opportunity to win a most wonderful gift! Crossing my fingers and toes!!!

  54. Fara

    So many pretty sweaters! I love the green one (and I’m so ready for Spring too). Thanks for the giveaway!

  55. Karen

    Wow…these look fabulous! I’ve been a Sweater Babe fan for ages now, and even if I don’t win, I just want to say her designs are spectacular.

  56. Jan McDowell

    I love SweaterBabe’s patterns! They always have such intriguing little touches that make the designs stand out.

  57. mollysusie

    Ooooh, I’ve been so excited to start some summer knitting and could use some new patterns! Thank you for the giveaway!

  58. Ann Devine

    The one drawback to being on vacay & away from the computer: I nearly missed the deadline for this fantastic giveaway! Love the Sweater Babe!

  59. Rebecca Beal

    I’ve never tried one of your contests before and this morning I thought, “Well, why not?!”

  60. Lillian Henegar

    I would love to work up one of these patterns – the vest would be very flattering on me or that cute girls’ sweater on one of my grandnieces.

  61. Esther

    I’d love to win one of your contests about now. You circulate such interesting information.

  62. Ann

    I’m a huge fan of SweaterBabe, having just finished her Boho Eternity Scarf for my daughter. Really taught me a lot,and turned out just gorgeous… Please enter me in the contest!
