  1. Sylvie says:

    The one I would cast on first would be “Evergreen” it’s SO pretty and I just love unusual scarves!
    I’d love to win this book!!!

  2. vbarton24 says:

    I absolutely love all of them but I love the Bronte first best and the vamp second best. such a lovely book.

  3. Some beautiful knits there but my pick is Mantilla because it’s like a fairy’s technicolour dream. xx

  4. If I have to pick only one, I’d pick arabesque. It just looks like me. Like something I would make and wear –and it’s even in the right color! My second choice would be mantilla, though in a different color. I also love grace, though I think I’d have to make it a little wider…err..longer? Anyway, big enough to fit my large upper arms!

  5. Ruth says:

    I have to agree about Ceilidh and also Bronte. The colours are lovely.

  6. Grandma Flea says:

    How could I go past Madame Alfred? It winked at me! I love the colour contrasts and the drape.

  7. Barbara says:

    I love the ceilidh shawlette for two reasons: it is unique in form and combines the turleneck with an arm cover for crisp spring and fall days; it is a heritage call for me having Scottish roots which gravitate to the tartan.

  8. torirot says:

    Miss Garricks!! I love colourwork, and that cowl is so cute!!

  9. lunefantasy says:

    Oh my Goddess, it’s so beautiful : Ceididh, Miss Garrick, Frost, I don’t know wherer to look…..
    I’m french but the father of my grand Father comes from Highlands…so perhaps Alba is in me…
    I’m sure of that.
    It’s very generous from to give us the opportunity to discover this marvellous creations

  10. sarah says:

    Kardamili, the colours are just gorgeous, what a marvellous giveaway!

  11. ildicolor says:

    Thank you so much! My favourite is the harlequin – so colorful and so cozy looking, so REAL and whizzily interwoven. By the way: I love your pretzel-cape (woodland hoodlet…), I wore it every chilly day!

  12. Karen Evans says:

    The first one I would knit would be harlequin because I just love entrelac. But that would only be a start since I just adore Madame Alfred, miss garricks and purple patch to name but a few. That’s done it now, I’m just going to have to buy the book if I don’t win one.

  13. koreakiwi says:

    What a delish book! My favorites are grace cos it looks like it would sit so prettily and then enigma for its sheer elegance 🙂

  14. baamekniits says:

    I would love to win this book. I would have to knit the entrelac shawlette, it is stunning!! I can just imagine that in my favorite Noro color way. 🙂

  15. Susi says:

    II love Fizz… it’s so cute…
    Pick me !!!

  16. Ingela says:

    Love Love Love—-the book !
    I will do “Miss Garricks”, can´t explain—-
    just fell for it—–

  17. Eva says:

    I would knit the fizz one, because it would go perfect with my sisters wedding gown! I have already been planning to give her “something blue” knit by me, and this pattern would just be perfect!

  18. Sue Plantinga says:

    Ceilidh, most definately; I’d have to knit it for the challenge!

  19. Julie says:

    I think Treasure is wonderful since I love ruffles and entrelac. It’s lovely!

  20. Nichole Cazares says:

    Twine is divine! I find the subtle colors and twists calming. Very Om. Then again there is frost and the ever lovely Miss. Garricks…choices choices!

  21. rose-marie says:

    I love the model MANTILLA. This model is a joyful and color reminds me of a beautiful orange full of vitamins!

  22. Cheryl says:

    Congratulations on your first Blog Tour!

    The first piece that caught my eye in the gallery was Garland, but that was before I saw Ceilidh! It’s absolutely amazing.

  23. Luinwen says:

    I think I will go for vamp!

  24. Sue says:

    It’s so hard to choose but I think my first pick would be Miss Garricks – I love it!

  25. I absolutely LOVE Vamp! It looks so soft and warm and those colours are delicious!

  26. Melinda says:

    It’s very hard to choose but the one that caught my eye the quickest is “fizz” – she’s so cute with a nice mix of vintage and fairy tale style.

  27. Linda Rumsey says:

    Frost is the one I’d start with – great for next winter!

  28. Charlotte says:

    Evergreen for me. Today is the Pagan festival of Ostara, and Evergreen makes me think of a garland of new spring leaves worn by a goddess …

  29. iwriteat says:

    I love Evergreen! It’s versatile yet must be quite a challenge to knit. I can imagine it in silvery-blue color combination.

  30. Louise says:

    Ceilidh is my favourite. I love the tartan ans the sweet colours of it. I also like the Madame alfred shawl which I would do in less contrast colours
    thank you for this giveaway!

  31. Fleur Cotton says:

    Arabesque for me, stunningly elegant!
    I’ve got my fingers crossed now!!
    Fleur xx

  32. WS Carmichael says:

    It’s hard to choose one, but the knitter in me is drawn to the Harlequin. It offers a chance to try a new technique in a small, easy to complete project. … oh and I love to play with color!

    Thanks for sharing this wonderful book!

  33. greenrabbitdesigns says:

    I love the pretty fairisle of Miss Garricks!!! 🙂

  34. Cat says:

    Ohhhhh, you are right, they all are intriguing, But, Madame Alfred is the one!

  35. Sarah says:

    Oh, I love this little book! Ever since I laid eyes on the front model Harlequin I wanted to knit it! Totally agree with you on Ceilidh though, the tartan is awesome. Thanks for this chance to win the book. ❤

  36. Anne Marie says:

    Although I also Love plaid, my favorite is Miss Kitty. Really love the vintage vibe!

  37. Tânia Sofia Oliveira says:

    Loved the book right away from the cover, so the harlequin would be the first. 🙂
    The most adorable pattern in a fun mixture of colors that is so my face.
    Thank you for this chance.

  38. Terri D. says:

    I like Penumbra. Just for a start. Thanks!

  39. All of Jean’s designs were amazing but “Frost” just screamed out to me and my Norwegian heritage, from the Intarsia snowflake designs right down to the pewter buttons.
    Such a lovely idea to do the give-away. Thank you!

  40. Jan Marriott says:

    what a good idea the blog tour is,,,has it been done before? Lots of super links.

  41. Holly says:

    Harlequin is what first caught my eye, but Twine has my name all over it. I love the textures and the twist.

  42. Helen says:

    Hi, I have to admit I like them all! I would probably make Miss Garrick’s first!

  43. Francine says:

    my fav. is Frost . I am a sucker for anything nordic looking !

  44. Emily says:

    Kardamili has my vote! The colors and the finishing edge caught my eye.

  45. janice says:

    I’ve kind of taken a shine to twine!

  46. chickadeeee says:

    how could i choose! i’d have to say my three favorites are madame alfred for the trim, ceilidh for the asymmetrical design and of course the plaid, and bronte for both the lovely lace and my love for the bronte sisters. ❤

  47. Tracey C says:

    Tough to choose between frost and ceilidh, but ceilidh may be my favorite.
    What could be better than plaid? It can be both subdued and a party depending on

  48. Kim C says:

    Many wonderful patterns, but my eyes lead to Purple PAtches. I can jsut see my little sis in this one. It’s so unique. It’s like a mini sweater and a shrug and a shawlette all in one~

  49. Pamela Elliott says:

    Lovely designs, but it has to be Bronte! my favourite sisters/authors and who knows maybe Mr Rochester will turn up or Heathcliffe. Life would never be boring. Love the romantic vintage look. Do you think Cathy or Jane Eyre would look good in it!! Takes me straight to the wild Yorkshire moors and in the wuthering winds you would definitely need this shawlette! Byeeeeeeeeee!

  50. Cindy Loo Hoo Sanders says:

    As a Ginger, I am drawn to Fall colors — rusts, golds, browns — the seasonal changing of tne guard. And yet…in the winter barren landscape, I am thankful for the Evergreens. So THAT is the one I want to knit!

  51. LaurenS says:

    I have a perfect skein of yarn for “Grace”, thank you.

  52. pixiewear says:

    welcome home, sweets!

    yay! a fun giveaway! i think my favorite is miss garricks… tho’ the fairisle is a little scary.

    love you!

  53. Sally says:

    Evergreen. Little lacy leaves will get me every time. Thanks for all the inspiration and the for the chance to win this book. Welcome home!

  54. Betsy Clendaniel says:

    In Jean Moss’ new book there are several that caught my eye, ya know first glance. the one that jumped off the page was Bess. It looks like a French piece of lingerie. ( cannot find how to spell the correct word) I have always wanted to wear one, but does not seem to fit, so now I can at least wear one around my neck. How fab that will be. Thanks for your website and truly unique items
    Have a knitty kind of day!

  55. Denise K says:

    I really like miss Garrick’s, mantilla and madame Alfred. You are sure right when you say there is at least one. Haha.

  56. Karen B says:

    Evergreen would be my first choice to knit. Reminds me of a walk in the woods. I have been drooling over this book and put it on my b-day wish list. So many pretties to make!

  57. Kristine M. says:

    Bronte is my favorite. I’ll be sure to start that one as soon as I get the book.

  58. Linnet says:

    I’ve been admiring Green at Heart, but today I’m thinking that Enigma might be calling to me even louder – I love how the airy layers work together!

  59. Dona says:

    I think they all look like a “Party” my first choice would be Harliquin and then maybe Kitty!!! Grrr

  60. Mia C says:

    I love the Fizz shawlette!

  61. Laney O'Leary says:

    Twine is one of my favorites from her collection! It is perfect with a lovely coat or jeans and sweater! what more can you ask for!!!???

  62. Casey says:

    Mantilla is my favorite and I wish wish wish I had the talent to knit it up for my grandmother!! Someday!

  63. Molly says:

    I would love to make the bess shawl because it reminds me of a corset!!

  64. So hard to choose but I’ve never done any colour work and really must try so think I will throw myself in the deep end with Miss Garricks! Thank you for bringing these to my attention TOK! xx

  65. Abi Boberg (phoebe-bird) says:

    I love Ceilidh. The tartan is so lovely. Someday I’ll knit it and go out into the woods at midnight and dance…

  66. J’adore the vintage shawlette “Kitty”: http://www.jeanmoss.com/images/MissKittyHR.jpg
    The faded rose detail is beautiful and the color palette is simply perfect! I would knit it exactly as shown. I also love Green at Heart and I have the perfect outfit for Ceilidh! ❤ Thanks for the opportunity to enter and congrats on your recent move!

  67. Olivia says:

    Enigma and Kitty are my favorite. Two very different designs…but very fun! Thanks for the opportunity! Hope you are enjoying the mountains!

  68. Elisa says:

    I looove Enigma. It looks so ethereal! But Kitty and Ceiliidh are some of my favourites too ❤

  69. Alma says:

    This is a lovely book! I usually crochet shawls, but have been looking for a knit challenge. The shawls in this book are irresistible! Thanks for adding that lovely list of knit ladies too.

  70. Maryjean says:

    My favourite is Enigma because it looks so spring-like and it’s finally spring here. Also, I like to remain an Enigma…particularly to my children

  71. Heidi Bruksas says:

    i really like the evergreen. lots of love from north Norway, Heidi

  72. Linda B says:

    Oh! How lovely! I adore ceilidh first and formost and polperro for a dressier look ! What a wonderful giveaway!

  73. polishedcopy says:

    Twine is right up my alley! Thanks for the contest!

  74. melissa patrick says:

    definitely ceilidh! i love the plaid work in this one, and the colors it’s shown are perfect for this pattern. so natural and beautiful. and who doesn’t love a good party?!!!

  75. Leila Sian says:

    I too love a good party, so Ceilidh it is for me, it’s already in my ravelry queue, woo hoo! I can see myself doing a celtic jig wearing it!

  76. heatherinsf says:

    Such pretty designs! You’re right, it was hard to choose but I like Enigma!

  77. Maureen says:

    Oh boy. This is a very difficult choice. I loved Fizz and Arabesque and … and….. OK. OK. I pick Enigma !!!! I love it’s drape and mystery. I love the colorway possibilities. I think it is awesome for every age of woman. My daughter would look awesome in it. And I want one too. YOW. I love the colors that Ms. Moss selected too. What color.


  78. Janis Clayton says:

    It’s so hard to choose but my eye kept going straight to Ceilidh.

  79. Kim says:

    I had so much fun on the blog tour. There are so many talented knitters and seeing what each of these had to offer was amazing. My favorite one of the shawlettes is madame alfred. The colors are so beautiful and very eye catching. Thank you for doing this it was fun.

  80. Helenlp says:

    I like Kardamili – love the colours and the design.

  81. Lark says:

    Ohhh, difficult choice. I really like Fizz, Miss Kitty, and Evergreen, and Vamp looks incredibly soft and elegant. Grace would look beautiful on someone with a longer neck than mine. But if I had to choose just one to knit, it would be Miss Garricks. I love the combination of the colors, the pattern, and the overall soft scrunchability.

  82. liz says:

    Fav shawl: Garland.
    Why? How fabulous will that look with a black turtleneck. Move over Anna Wintour.

  83. Deborah says:

    Miss Garricks caught my eye, but Ceilidh captured my heart. I love plaid!

  84. projectstash says:

    Hmmm, it’s hard for me to choose between Vamp and Polperro as they both have just that little something special! If I win, I think I’ll have to knit both! Thanks for the giveaway.

  85. Maya Hanley says:

    I love Mantilla. It reminds me of choosing a lacy mantilla for Mass when I was a child and it also makes me think of Spain, my favourite country. I would make it in pale lilac or silver.

  86. Ruth says:

    It was very difficult to choose just one pattern they are all lovely. Bronte is gorgeous, the colours are soothing and I can see myself wearing the shawl.

  87. Marilee says:

    My two favorites are Vamp and Polperro, they’d look great on my daughter. I especially love all the ruffles on Vamp!

  88. Erin says:

    I think I like Vamp because of the organic swirly nature of it. I’ve not knit something like it, and it is pretty.

  89. meppybn says:

    Kardamili is my very favest one – though it is very hard to choose just one – I have my eye on just about every single pattern, they are all so great. Yay, two in a row 🙂 🙂

  90. Patty Demant says:

    I love the Fizz shawlette because it is a classic !

  91. Ginny says:

    Even though everyone and their owl has either knit one of been talking about it, I’d have to say I’d knit Mantilla first out of all of them. The lace work is gorgeous and it seems like such a versatile piece and I just have to have one in my wardrobe.

  92. Debby says:

    Grace is the one I would knit first just something on your neck to warm one self up is some times all one needs for those chilly spring days and grace is so beautiful frilly and femine but not fussy .

  93. Robin says:

    Wow…they are all so pretty! So hard to choose one, but I’d pick Miss Garricks. I get excited about doing a bit of color work, and it looks like it would be cozy, too…so sweet!

  94. Deborah B. Morrison says:

    There were 3 I really liked but Fizz would be my first. I love the femininity of it.

  95. Melinda says:

    Twine for sure — love the texture and the opportunity to use subtle colors!

  96. beardedowl says:

    Shut the front door! Miss garricks is too cute!
    And congrats on your blog tour! That’s wonderful:)

  97. Bonnie says:

    I love Twine, but there are lots of lovely patterns in this book. Thanks for hosting the giveaway!

  98. Melissa says:

    Congratulations on being part of the blog tour! That is very exciting!
    All of her patterns are lovely! It was tough to decide but I choose……..Vamp! It is so sweet, lovely, and gorgeous!! I just love it! My reasons are: the yarn (looks like mohair)…it is so soft and sweet….I just want to put it against my face : D ; it is beautifully designed…how it swirls around the neck…so elegant; I love the little bow on the front…so darling; I also love the two colour mixtures on the scarf….I heart purple (my favourite colour) and the grey mixture. It is just WONDERFUL : D!!
    Thank you for this opportunity for the chance to win her book! It has been on my wishlist since it came out.

  99. Feral Pixie says:

    I’d choose Evergreen having lived my adulthood amongst the tall trees. She who encases my bedroom window is dying. I’d make the leaves as walnut, for she.

  100. ginny says:

    Evergreen is so sweet. I would wear that for a walk in the woods in the spring.

  101. Holly says:

    Well, I haven’t quite mastered the Intarsia thing yet but,
    I LOVE the Ceilidh shawl! The colorways are just perfect!
    I’d make a gift of this one. Lovely.

  102. Stephanie says:

    What a dreamy book and fabulous giveaway. I would love to get my hands around Kardamili because the colours grab me on this first day of spring and I love any kind of flower ornamentation in textile art.

    Thank you!

  103. Nikki Fortuin says:

    They’re so pretty, it’s hard to choose a favorite, but “fizz” is definitely my fave. Such a sweet vintage style. I’m crossing my fingers that I win the book. 🙂

    PS — what gorgeous photography! Really shows off the shawlettes!

  104. Carol says:

    I love vamp. It is so feminine (as are all the shawls), but it is definitely my favorite. I like the layering effect.

  105. Gerry says:

    I love “Evergreen”. It would be great in linen for the hot Texas climate.

  106. Deanna says:

    I have to say that ceilidh is my first favourite, though I do really like harlequin and kitty. So many lovely designs!

  107. Debra says:

    The plaid one! The plaid one! The plaid one!
    A little too much caffeine this morning. So calmly, but with feeling” the plaid one: Ceilidh. But also Penumbra. LOTS of great little shawls 🙂

  108. Annie W. says:

    Ooh, my favorite is kitty. The colors give it a beautiful Victorian-vintage feel! Thanks for the giveaway!

  109. Lyn (coppertoptoo) says:

    Yay! Congrats Stephanie! How exciting for you!! So many of them are just too, too cute! I love the Mantilla and Grace and Polperro and Fizz and and and …. I just ❤ 's them all!!

  110. knittingdancer says:

    I really like Bronte, Fizz Capelet, and Penumbra.

  111. Jenny V says:

    I love Madame Alfred! A nice little bit of colourwork but I could also see the main part being knit up in a cosy alpaca blend 🙂

  112. Lisa says:

    omg just pick one fav?? how about three…frost (love the wintry look), twine, and ceilidh! Just as I was reading the bit about you casting on the plaid piece, its image turned up on the scroller and I was like ” D: ..so gorgey!!”

  113. Myra says:

    I need a little “Grace” in my life.

  114. Gina P. says:

    awesome book! I too had a hard time picking one, so the first one I would like to do is the Madame Alfred shawlette. Thank you so much for giving away a copy!

  115. Jessica says:

    I would say… Evergreen! I adore those cute dangling leaves! But really, all the of the shawlettes pictured look amazing! Definitely saving the Amazon link~

  116. Heike says:

    I would knit Mantilla for my mom. This one is beautiful and my mom would love it.

  117. Pat Brown says:

    All of you yarnie beauties look wonderful in all of these. Since i’m an old knitting and crocheting granny, I need one of these lovelies to cover up all my (just hate them) neck wrinkles. I love the whole idea of the leaves and the wrap on EVERGREEN. I really need this and all of my enormouse as well as my tiny we lines and wrinkles are squeeling loudly as if they were baby piglets, saying “cover us , of please danglir

  118. Ashley S. says:

    I like Mantilla! How gorgeous!

  119. Betsy Jorgenson says:

    My top choice is ceilidh because I am also an avid fan of anything plaid! I also like the colors – they’re versitile – appropriate for either spring or fall, which would be perfect seasons for this garment. I like that it is not a cowl or a shall, but a mix of both. Finally, to knit in such a way as to render a garment that looks like woven plaid as this one does is pretty impressive!

  120. Cat Rusher says:

    Miss Kitty is delightful. I’d love to knit this as it is almost the same as my kitty number 1 – Marlene. We could wrap up and cuddle. Kitty number 2 – Boycie – might get fed up though so I would have to knit two!

  121. Teresa Fussell says:

    I love the frost cowl!

  122. upwithcycle says:

    Enigma. I’d love to make the layers in my favorite color contrasts, and would feel all flow-y wearing it… 🙂

  123. I love Evergreen because….well, because I have a soft spot for knitted leaves and because it is a crossing between a scarf, a necklace and a shawlette.

  124. Silvia says:

    Hallo! I love Miss Garricks! I like those colours together! And the shape is original but simple at the same time!

  125. kniterly says:

    I really like the penumbra. I’ve always liked basic bold stripes, and I like the sailor connotations I get from it.

  126. marieange says:

    I would love to make Purple Patch Shrug for my daughter. She loves vintage buttons and this would be the perfect item to display them on.

  127. Bonnie says:

    I fell in love with two! How piggish of me (giggle). The first love was ‘Madam Alfred’. I loved the vibrant colorways and the beautiful way that it draped on the model. The second love was “fizz”. It’s beautiful design really made me feel like I would be a Jane Austin heroine if I was wearing that!

  128. Aubrey M says:

    Oh, the Kitty for sure! What a lovely book.

  129. Embug says:

    it would have to be the ceilidh but with a wee bitty change…. i would have to knit it in the colours of my family tartan the loud McLeod which is garish bright and wonderful. I got handfasted using a strip of this tartan in the glorious welsh countryside nearly two years ago, and ever since have been looking for a way to include it in my every day clothes. This i feel will be it ❤

  130. Janet says:

    There are so many beautiful ones, for me though Ceilidh stands out because it is so different and unusual from anything I have ever seen. Just stunning

  131. stormarela says:

    It is so difficult to choose just one. However, I would love to cast on Polperro. I really love the cable and lace pattern! Next would be Ceilidh, it looks so soft and drapey, and the plaid is amazing.

  132. Wow! ❤ ❤ Well, well, well.. if i had to choose one: Mantilla is absolutely gorgeous and romantic looking. She would definitely be my first shawl for spring. I would knit her with love <3, and then we'd strut to the farmer's market together on a chilly summer morning – of course commenting on the lovely fruit, vegetables, and cheeses for sale.

  133. Sonya says:

    miss garricks and evergreen are my favourites!

  134. GerryART says:

    I’ve had my eye on two
    Penumbra = love the contrast, my style
    kardamill = minus those pom-poms that are not my style


  135. virginia says:

    Oh I totally love the plaid one too! I am a wee bit afraid of intarsia, but I think it would be worth it for that one, love the colors, love the lushness of it, so squishy in lima, and cozy! Love it!

  136. Jenn says:

    I would have to knit bronte first. But it is a beautiful collection of shawls.

  137. Anne says:

    Had a hard time choosing but also like the ceilidh and also the harlequin. All are nice, would love to win! Thanks.

  138. Kim Dominic says:

    I would cast on the “polperro”, as my first project. I love the style of it and think it would be great paired with a cotton floral sundress. Beautiful!

  139. Jenn says:

    I would have to say miss garricks. The pattern looks so beautiful! I really like the drawstring on it. It woud be something I would wear, totally!

  140. Kathi says:

    Oooh, I love them all but since I’m into guys in kilts, I would choose ceilidh. ♥

  141. Sharon says:

    I’d cast on Purple Patch because it would be great to wear from work to shopping to the PTA meeting. Perfect for any setting and Purple, too!

  142. Deborah Pick says:

    I love the Bronte design, it has a real romantic feel about it.

  143. silvergran says:

    miss kitty….made me smile….. dressed and waiting for the king of the Jungle 🙂

  144. Zenitude says:

    I would love to cast on for Madame Alfred. I love how casual it is.

  145. Little Knitwits says:

    I would love to cast on the ceilidh. It would be perfect for picking blackberries in, and perhaps sitting in a moonlit clearing and having a midnight picnic of berry pie.

  146. MusicalMary says:

    I love the honeycomb blanket! I ordered the pattern and took it with me on spring break…fun…satisfying!

  147. MusicalMary says:

    I adore the limey green and blue ENIGMA! It is geometrically edgy, yet classy. The wispy and transparently sheer fiber drapes one color over the other to create shadings of a blended “new” color…YUMMY!

  148. carol says:

    I love Evergreen! Leaves get me every time and I also like it because it is different!
    Thank you for the lovely giveaway opportunity!

  149. Wendy Rolón says:

    i like VAMP the best, in part because it’s got a good name 😉

  150. Kathleen says:

    I’d go with Harlequin because I love anything patchwork looking and it looks so cozy and the colors used are wonderful.

  151. shevawn says:

    The one you’re going to cast on is my fav! I love argyle/plaid patterning – plus the original design is knit out of Rowan Lima which is magically scrumptious. yum! 🙂

  152. Katy says:

    Harlequin! It looks like it would be cozy and colourful fun for a picnic outing.

  153. Evergreen et Harlequin ! Impossible de choisir … Je tente ma chance aussi !
    J’adore ton site et surtout l’ambiance magique qui s’en dégage …
    Merci de nous offrir la chance de gagner un tel trésor !
    Belle journée de printemps !

  154. Maggie R says:

    This book looks great! I think I would like to make the kardamili first. Thank you for a chance to win a copy 🙂

  155. iseemylife says:

    I like Enigma. The colors and style really made an impact as I scrolled the images.

  156. Ayla says:

    Oh my, I had a hard time picking a favourite, and then narrowed it down to two – Miss Garricks and Madame Alfred. How do I choose?! I think Miss Garricks is gonna win this one. I love that it’s filed under “folk”. I love the bright colours and that it cinches with the drawstring! It’s so pretty. They’re all pretty, but I’m definitely a hippie type and adore most of the shawls under Country and Folk haha.

  157. Handmadebykate-em says:

    Kitty, definately. I can never resist a bit of animal print!

  158. The tartan one is my favorite as well! My boyfriend is very proud of his Scottish heritage and would just adore me if I wore that! Not that he doesn’t already. 😉

  159. Katie says:

    It was so hard to pick one. Of them all, Frost is the one that would get the most wear.

  160. Christine Catone - thesailingknitter says:

    ceilidh for sure… because plaid is my favorite color and since the first time I saw this pattern I have wanted to make it 🙂

  161. Karisma Fine says:

    I very much love the evergreen one as I love all things nature and green. I have been crocheting a lot of leaves myself this week. I have to say though I also love your woodland hoodlet. Funny thing as I have not popped by here for a while. I guess because you were absent and last night my daughter sends me a link to the woodland shawl. A hint I think that she wants it. LOL

  162. My favourite is Mantilla, though Bronte is a close second! I love doing knitted lace!

  163. marina genovesi says:

    Ciao, devo dire che il tuo blog mi piace moltissimo, complimenti!
    Spero di poter partecipare al tuo giveway, i modelli mi piacciono tutti, nessuno escluso.
    Un abbraccio.

  164. Renee says:

    Oh my! It certainly is hard to choose just one. My heart is drawn towards “kardamili”. Something about the little dangles from the trim. I love it! Thank you for the opportunity to win.

  165. Ally says:

    HOOT!!!!! I love the vamp shawl, so swirly and reminiscent of smoke from a fireplace – the sort you toast marshmallows on as the smoke curls and plucks at the memories of winters gone by…….. It’s finally cold enough here in my little country town in Australia, cold enough for a wood fire, warm enough curled up with knitting needles and a good project, kitty by my side, handknitted socks on and a hot chocolate…. alas the warmth of the vamp’s appeal has got me 🙂

  166. Tiffany says:

    Ceilidh! It’s beautiful! I love the colors and I love clean lines. Penumbra or Kitty would be my second picks. 🙂

  167. Carrie P. says:

    They are all so beautiful, it’s hard to choose just one! I think Evergreen is just lovely though and reminds me of spring.

  168. pittypat60 says:

    Green at Heart grabbed me right away! I am not sure why except I love the sleekness and the buttons or maybe it is the assymetrical design.

  169. Hildegard Pax says:

    It would be Harlequin for me! I love the colours and the different knit directions in it, and the stylish simplicity.

  170. Olivia Major says:

    Polperro! OMG elegant and beautiful!

  171. Dawnknitella says:

    I love Kitty! Meow! It was hard to pick just one… (I was just looking at this book on Amazon before I got to your post)

  172. sarah mc says:

    i’m pretty sure i’m in love with KITTY. 🙂 they are all beautiful, though!

  173. I would do Evergreen first and then about 3 or 4 more!

  174. Rebecca says:

    Oh my stars! Even though they are all beauties it has to be Madame Alfred for me. The colors are just lovely.

  175. Beth Andrew says:

    I like Harlequin the best… actually have had my eye on it for a while… as I favorited it on Ravelry soon after it was posted. I like the geometrical modern shape, and juxtaposition of vibrant colors. It is unique!

  176. Lisa Soderman says:

    All of her designs are very nice! I really like the “Fizz” and “Twine” designs though. Her creations are very knittable for all levels. :). Still love Tiny Owl Knits tons! Welcome back to the states!

  177. Margarita says:

    My favorite is Mantilla. I’m currently in love with lace and that design looks fab. I also like Penumbra. Love the stripes. 😀

  178. Dees says:

    oh how lovely:-)all of them….but Kitty is my fav♥

  179. Dana says:

    It’s really hard to pick but my absolute favorite is harlequin! I love the colors and the entrelac.

  180. helen says:

    They’re ALL gorjus! How can I choose just one? I love Penumbra for its colours and Mantilla because I’m a sucker for lace. That’s my shortlist so far.

  181. Enid says:

    my Mother used to say blue and green should never be seen but am i bovvered Enigma yes yes yes

  182. Maria says:

    Kitty is my favorite and I can’t wait to make it!!

  183. Jean Saja says:

    I love Green at Heart (that’s what I am) in Sweet Shawlettes does not appear to be intimidating.
    When I am braver…

  184. papoosue says:

    Oh yes, it’s the tartan one (plaid) for me too, how gorgeous it is! What lovely patterns.

  185. chloe says:

    It’s Purple Patch for me. I can really see me in it. And I have so many purples in my stash. And…and..and. So many reasons. I love Bronte and Mantilla as well. But for many reasons Purple Patch would be perfect.

  186. Michelle says:

    Ooh so many pretty and clever shawls!! Penumbra stood out the most for me I think- such a striking design! But hard to choose between them all 🙂

  187. Kathy says:

    I luuuuuv the evergreen although I would do an everfall since they are my faave colors. Its so creative and lovely. Love this page and going to start the bekeepers just have to gater my thin yarn!!

  188. Roisin says:

    Wow, they’re all gorgeous but I have to say…mantilla is my favourite or arabesque.They’re both so elegant and beautiful. Yay for knitting 😛

  189. Sarah Hughes says:

    The Harlequin reminds me of an old, warm quilt in a cozy cabin in the mountains, I’d love to have that wrapped around me all year long; great book!

  190. Em says:

    I do love Ceilidh. 🙂

  191. Carolyn Keller says:

    Kitty, most definitely, kitty, well maybe mantilla and it’s beautiful ethereal lacy quality, no I am sticking with kitty – I LOVE KITTY!

  192. Barbara LeFleur says:

    While I actually like several of the designs, my favorite is Miss Garricks, as it is not only colorful but a style I would enjoy wearing to the office. It is always chilly in there and warm, pretty knits are more than welcome; they are a necessity. Cheers!

  193. Viviana says:

    The first thing I’d knit is Bronte – I’m obsessed with things Bronte, and I love lace designs!

  194. Anna P. says:

    Windy, flowy with subtle hues of blue and green, perfect for an afternoon walk in the woods… Mysterious like enigma…

  195. Leticia says:

    Green at Heart
    Love them all!

  196. Marylou says:

    How to choose from so many pretties! Love the Ceilidh, but I’m thinking Mantilla would make a lovely ‘going out’ wrap. (My little baby daughter has just learnt to cross her fingers, I’ll ask her to cross them and hope I win the book!!)

  197. Samantha M. says:

    I would knit Bronte first, I love the lovely lace and the romantic feminine feel it has.

  198. I really like harlequin. I haven’t done entrelac yet, but that pattern makes me want to try! I like the big squares. What a great book!!

  199. Fiona Dempster says:

    Think I have to agree with you on Ceilidh, but then I’m a homesick Scot living in Calgary, Canada!

  200. Raine Phillips says:

    I also love Ceilidh, here in Australia our winter’s are chilly, but I would love the softness of Vamp. To knit this piece would be a wonderful way to VAMP up this winter.

  201. Debby Mayes says:

    Oh my goodness, is there a single design there NOT to like?! I’m thinking I’ll have to buy the book, regardless, and although BESS comes a close second (because I vaguley resemble Good Queen B. albeit with a fringe instead of a shaven forehead), I’m going with KITTY because its vintage style just clutches at my heart – and because it’ll look fab om my cat-lovin’ Kitten, and she’s the one I’ll be knitting it for.

  202. Heidi says:

    I love ceilidh! Just enough vintage, just enough style. Would be perfect for autumn weather!

  203. I too love the ceildah best. I think it has just the right touch of gamine to it. I imagine it with a japanese inspired shift, longish socks, doc martins, and a tousled hair do. 🙂 of course I’d have to be many years younger to pull all that off, but still, I do have my imagination.

  204. Outi says:

    i fell for penumbra ❤ harlequin also had my attention, they were all lovely ❤ !

  205. domedweller says:

    They are all so lovely that it is very difficult to choose, so I actually have two favorites: ceilidh and kitty. Hope I’m the lucky one!

  206. Cathy says:

    Would choose Frost as my favorite. Scandinavian design + shawlette = happiness

  207. Robin says:

    I love polperro, and I love the buttons and embellishments used with these designs

  208. Eliza Ruiz says:

    Someone invented fairy goddess wear! I would love to adorn myself with Garland and Evergreen while knitting a Drift and Twine then dancing in Empty Circles! Then prance around with Grace whilst me and Kitty >^..^< look for Treasure with Miss Garricks! Oh the fun to be had ❤ ❤ !

  209. Emily says:

    “Empty Circle”, because sometimes you just need to have the balls.

  210. I have the yarn for the over the shoulders Irish/Scottish shawl, now I need the pattern directions. Love the look , and site looks luscious.

  211. atrem says:

    I like the pattern Miss Garrick the most. it is fairisle, colourful and folksy, which is just up my alley. It can also be used for numerous other projects (I am always on the lookout for good fairisle patterns) and made into all sorts of useful things. Definitely my number one 🙂

Give a hoot here. I love to hear from you!
