I like big books and I cannot lie…

There’s something about a giant book that just feels deeply satisfying.  It’s solid and substantial and reassuringly permanent.  And this?  Well this totally qualifies!

It’s Interweave’s new 100 Knits (as always, amazon links are affiliate links), and they were kind enough to send me a copy (I’ve got a sock pattern in there) plus an extra to send  off to one of you.

The book brings 100 of Interweave’s most popular adult garment and accessory patterns together in one giant collection (seriously, it feels like a textbook…which makes my little book nerd heart happy).  Inside you’ll find ten hats, six socks, two scarfs, twelve cowls, twelve shawls, twenty one cardigans, twenty six pullovers, and eleven tanks or tees.  The accessories are generally unisex, and the sweaters seem to be almost exclusively shown on (and mostly sized for) women (I think one of the 58 garments is shown on a man), though many of them are likely to appeal to everyone.

With 100 patterns, you probably won’t fall hopelessly in love with every pattern in the book, but there are probably plenty that will catch your eye, especially if you knit a lot of women’s sweaters!  You can browse the complete list of them on ravelry.

I’ve got a copy of the book to give away here (and another on instagram).  If you think it might want to come live with you, just leave me a comment telling me about the biggest book on your bookshelf (how you interpret biggest is up to you…longest? tallest? most important? there’s no wrong answer).  In a few days, I’ll pick a winner and get in touch to mail the book your way!

Comments left between now and the end of the day, eastern time, on Saturday, October 27 are entered to win.  Open to adults with a US mailing address).  There’s another giveaway over on instagram if you want to enter there as well!
