Giveaway: Fluffy Yarn

Remember the long loopy scarves I knitted for my sisters at Christmas?



Well, I've got lots of that fluffy faux-mohair (100% acrylic) yarn leftover and - as there's a limit to the amount of fluffy scarves I can knit for my friends and family - I thought it would be fun to share some with you guys :)

I'm giving away one set of cloudy blue yarn...



... and one set of black yarn:


My scarves were knitted in basic garter stitch, knitting two strands of yarn together to make one thick strand. I used very chunky needles (needle size 000 / 15 / 10mm) and cast on about 15 stitches and then just kept knitting until the scarf was as long as I wanted. Then I cast off and stitched the ends together to form a twisted loop (like this). Easy!



If you'd like to knit your own loop scarf or have something else you fancy making from the fluffy yarn, leave a comment on this blog post for your chance to win. Remember to say which colour you'd prefer! 

I'm happy to ship internationally, so anyone can enter. Leave your comment before 10pm on Tuesday 28th February, and I'll pick two winners at random on Wednesday 29th February. 

Please make sure you leave a name or pseudonym (no anonymous comments please!) and leave a blog link, Twitter username, Etsy username or email address so I can contact you. If I'm unable to contact the winner within two weeks, I will pick someone else. 


P.S. pop back tomorrow for another crafty giveaway...


UPDATE: this giveaway is now closed.
