I am snowed in with my children today, and I suspect many other knitters are similarly impaired by the snow. It seems like a perfect time for a giveaway!
Tina of Freia Fine Handpaints wants to give a Knitty reader a kit for her Obliqua cowl pattern in the new Knitty.
You will get two Freia Fine Handpaints Merino Fingering Shawl Balls , one in Charcoal and one in Dirty Hippie, the same color combination in her pattern.
I think everyone deserves a gift this time of the year, but only one lucky reader will win.
Our usual rules apply: Leave a comment on this post between now and midnight eastern time, Friday, December 16th. One comment will be chosen at random to answer a skill testing question. If the commenter answers correctly they will win the Freia kit. If you have already won a prize from us this year, please do give other knitters a chance. Giveaway value $66.00
Happy Knitting & Good Luck!
that would be a great Christmas present!
Gorgeous! That would really brighten up the gray weather we’ve been having around here.
What a lovely prize on a dreary day – thanks for the opportunity.
I love this pattern & adore the colorways! Such a colorful way to greet the dark & dreary days of winter.
I love the cowl!
I love the fun color mix!
That yarn looks nice
Beautiful cowl pattern and yarns!
Love the colors and it’s snowing here (still) in Montana!
Dirty Hippie is so bright and cheerful! I’m going to need some color now that we’ve had a snowfall that’s going to stick…
What a lovely combination of yarn colors. Thanks for the opportunity!
That cowl caught my eye–it is gorgeous! I’d love to make it!
I immediately looked for the yarn used locally after seeing this issue some out – with no luck.
Oh I’ve been wanting to try Freia yarn for ages!!
A wonderful bright fun knitting project
I have used some Freia in the past – it is great yarn. I would love to win this prize for my daughter (she just had brain surgery) she recently favorited this pattern on Ravelry.
How gorgeous! I would love to win.
Thanks for the chance!
Wow! That is so beautiful…
Holy Cowl! These yarns are scrumptious.
Love the colors! Also, it’s my birthday and Christmas is coming up, so I really hope I win!
Would love to have a crack at this! Beautiful!
Wow, that looks beautiful! I’d love to win!

Wow, those are beautiful yarns! Looks like a very fun knit.
Bright yarn to help warm up on this grey, snowy day!
Great timing on such a colorful giveaway. Thanks for the holiday cheer!
I love those colors!
We just had our first big snowfall of the year, and bright colors and a warm, toasty cowl would be really welcome right now!
That kit would certainly brighten up the dreary landscape that is the PNW in December.
That’s beautiful! I would love a chance to knit it.
Beautiful shawl. Thanks for the chance to win the yarn.

Looks like a fun knit..
What a bright and lovely gift on a dreary day!
I love the look of this cowl’s stitch pattern, and I’d be curious to see what kind of fabric it produces (in terms of elasticity). Having the exact yarn for which it was designed would be the perfect way to find out!
I love the bright colors! Plus I have always wanted to try Freia yarn!
I am in love with those colours
Love the colors in that cowl! There’s no way to have a miserable day wearing that.
I have to learn multiple color knitting still. This kit would be a grrat excuse.
I added the pattern to my queue the minute I saw it! I’d love to win a kit!
Awesome pattern, awesome colours.

Oooooh, that was my favorite pattern in this issue. Somebody’s in for a fun knit… maybe even me!?
Thank-you for the opportunity!!
Oh, what pretty bright colors for a snowy gray day!
Who can resist a colorway called “Dirty Hippie”? Also, this looks like a good pattern to break me out of my all-neutrals-all-the-time rut.
Ooh, lovely! Thank you for the contest!
The pattern and colors really caught my eye. I would love to win the kit and thank you for the chance.
Hoping this is open to us knitters outside the US!
What a fun pattern! It looks so cheery, especially since outside is just gloomy piles of white …
Everything comes together beautifully in this cowl – the colors, the fringe, the length. Really a great design. KittenWhiplash on Rav

oooooo me please
It’s wicked lovely! I love it.
I’ve had my eye on Freia yarn!
Yarn colour names are so evocative……Dirty Hippie would find a good home with me. Thanks for the amazing offer!
Since I was a dirty hippy many years ago, I love these colors!

Such a lovely cowl and beautiful yarn! can’t resist something called Dirty Hippie!
I love the bright colors. Just what we need to brighten up a gloomy winter day. Although today it is sunny. Frigid…but at least sunny.
What a fun giveaway!! Thank you!
No snow here! Great giveaway, thanks.
Snow sounds so much better than the grey rain of the day! Thanks for beautiful colors to brighten the day.
Bright colors for a gray snowy day. Perfect!
I would LURVE to win this. A beauty!
I always love a little (or big) pop of color in winter, especially when it’s dreary outside, and most everyone in the NYC area is dressed in black or grey from head to toe. This is a gorgeous kit.
So pretty and colorful. Just what we need to knit on these cold bleak days. I’m in please.
Thanks for the giveaway.
Love this, would be great for my daughter!
This is gorgeous and I can’t wait to make it, winner or no!
Thanks for the giveaway. Love the pattern and the yarn.
Lots of snow here too. Just the right thing to take away the blahs and make us think of the Caribbean! Count me in.
Love the colour combination!
I love this! I have a skein of Dirty Hippie in laceweight that I’m (slowly) making into a shawl. Something a bit quicker to knit would be marvelous.
This looks amazing! Perfect cold weather distraction.
I am just discovering the utility cowls. Cover the breezy gaps while providing another opportunity to feel wooly softness!
I wish we had a snow day! We just have some chilly winds 🙂
That’s a beautiful cowl. Thanks for featuring this pattern. So nice to see a more unusual gradient pattern.
Yes! I adore this yarn and love this color combo!!
I am right in the middle of a cowls knitting period, there is room for 1 more!!
Love, love, love the colors!
That cowl went straight to the top of my must knit list.
So pretty! Thanks for hosting the giveaway. We had our first real snow yesterday. It’s beautiful, but people certainly have forgotten how to drive…
Love this pattern, and the fabulous models showing off the cowl make it even better! Would be thrilled to be able to knit it in the original yarn.
I’ve been eyeing this pattern! Would love to do it in these colors.
I’m curious to find out what the skill question is. I wonder if this pattern would be good for scraps of handspun.
This looks like it would be the perfect project to knit as we slide into winter. Color, fun and wooly.
I adore Freia Handpaints yarns and pet it every time I see it but have not had any of my own yet. Would LOVE to win this yarn and pattern!
I love these bright colors!
And I know the perfect Hippie
With all the sledding I did with my kid on our snow day, a spare warm cowl sounds just about ideal!
Love the range of colors
looks really beautiful
Such a fun colorful thing to knit in winter
Oh so beautiful, so perfect as the polar arctic cooks had just rolled in and looks to stay awhile. Just the thought of it, cozy everything, some tea or cocoa, a little music on low and this. As perfect way to spend a snowy cold day indeed. Thank you for the opportunity.
I want to knit all the things right now including this amazing cowl, but alas I have nothing close to the Dirty Hippie colorway in my stash. I would be one happy camper if the giveaway gods awarded me this kit.
Beautiful giveaway! We enjoyed some of that snow here in Denver.
Lovely cowl and gorgeous colors!
Love the colours! Just what we need to wear on a cold dreary day.
Love the scarf/cowl in the photograph
Oh it’s so pretty! I could always use another scarf/cowl 🙂
It would be lovely to win such beautiful yarn and pattern. Maybe this will be the lucky comment! 🙂
Perfect colors for the gray and cold! Thanks for the giveaway!
Vibrant colors for the winter.
That looks like the perfect antidote for a grey English winter!
Love those colors and the pattern!
Beautiful colors in the model. I would have time to knit this before Christmas, probably.
I love the Pride colors of this cowl!
So bright and cheery for such dark, dreary weather we’re having outside…would love to win…thanks for the chance!
It’s very pretty. And I like that yarn name “dirty hippie”, heh.
