The giveaway is now closed, thanks for entering! Winners will be notified shortly.

Remember all those posts about the design challenge I was doing with Cory of indieknits? Well, the patterns are now available!

Meet Uprising:

Our new collaboration is called Lab Rat Knits, and our first ebook Rastita Design Challenge is available on Ravelry! You can also purchase the patterns individually.


I had so much fun working with Cory and designing my first non-sock pattern! It was inspiring to see the way she works, and really fun to meet and discuss how our design projects were shaping up. And we’re going to do it again!

But first… the giveaway:

To celebrate, Cory and I are hosting a little giveaway!

I will be giving away two prizes:

  • the big one: a free download of the Rastita Design Challenge ebook and 2 skeins of Rastita to make your own Uprising cowl
  • the runner-up prize: a free download of the ebook

You can pop on over to Cory’s giveaway post too! To spread the love and keep things fair, we’re limiting prizes to one per person in the overall contest.
