    I need to learn how to knit gloves so I really have to have this book. Please let me have it so I can make nice presents for my future grandchildren. I can’t get enough of patterns and lessons. I want to include this in my library.

  2. You can never have too many hats or mittens! I’m guessing that’s a slipped stitch pattern on the cover; it’s cute. I’d knit that!

    I really want to learn how to knit fingerless cloves with each finger getting an inch of knitting around it. See I don’t even know what it’s call which is why I would like the book! LOL

  4. cristina alexandru says:

    Knitting in the round is my new passion. I managed to knit only one pair of simple mittens. Learning advanced techniques is the next step for me and this book seams perfect :).

  5. Nancy says:

    I would love to learn the magic loop! The book looks like it would be a great book!

  6. Jen Sako says:

    I just moved from Texas to Pennsylanvia so I NEED to know how to knit both mittens AND hats to SURVIVE! I am wanting to know about “thumbs.” Hope I win a copy 🙂

  7. Karen says:

    I would love to learn the magic loop. I have been knitting for 50 years and have only recently heard of this technique and want to add it to my repertoire.

  8. Connie says:

    I need to learn the magic loop!

  9. Teddy Spiegelberg says:

    I have made a few hats and one pair of mittens and would love to do more of each. The book looks quite interesting!

  10. Dee Carmichael says:

    I have trouble holding the double pointed needles. The more projects I have to learn the better my skills will get.

  11. Donna Reed says:

    I have never been brave enough to try mittens. Would love this book to inspire me.

  12. Elisabeth Valev says:

    I would like to learn how to make the thumbs when using the magic loop !

  13. Cheryl says:

    I would love this book. I would especially love the cover pattern!!! I would love to be able to make mittens that weren’t wonky or a hat that actually fit and didn’t fall off my head.

  14. T Long says:

    I would love to have this book to add to my collection. I have Multiple Sclerosis and knitting helps me to relax and keep my mind off of everything that I am having to deal with at this time. I do not get to go out and get knitting books anymore due to many reasons. Knitting is my medicine to keep me going!

  15. Mary Anderson says:

    I would love to learn techniques for working color patterns – something beyond plain stripes! I would start with the set on the cover!

  16. Ginger says:

    I live in Wisconsin so hats & mittens are a huge neccessity here. I’d love to learn magic loop. I love using DPNs but I’m sure I could learn something new about those as well.

    I’m gswart on ravelry and twitter

  17. Jane Jacobs says:

    I would love to have a copy of this book. I have learned to knit with two colors but not more, and I think the patterns in this book would be a great incentive — not to mention the fact I live in Minnesota! Also, I’m not great at thumbs/fingers without holes yet — would love an opportunity to learn to do this better.

    Thank you for your offer!

  18. Jeanne says:

    I’d love to have this book. So much to learn about mittens and getting the thumbs correct. I’m Greyknitter on Ravelry and twitter. Thanks!

  19. rachel says:

    I want to learn stranded knitting with two hands to speed up the process on Selbu mittens. My left hand just isn’t keeping up with my right at the moment, haha.

  20. BearyAnn says:

    I want to become comfortable with DPNs, I also want to learn to use 2 circular needles in places of DPNs.

  21. Candi Rinehart says:

    I must have this book so that I can learn to make mittens using the magic loop method. I have a kid that can’t keep up with them and I need to make them faster! Me, Please!

  22. Barbara Katz says:

    I have Raynaud’s Syndrome and have to wear mittens from October through March and sometimes into April. It would be great to be able to wear a different pair every day with a matching hat and use up my stash of leftover yarn in a productive way. And maybe I’ll learn to like working with dp needles.

  23. Brenda says:

    I would love this book. As I do not have any person near me that knits I am always looking for good resources. I would love to learn how to better size/shape mitts, also wanting to start working with color changing.

  24. Edna F. says:

    I want to learn to work with color more. I love the front of the book, and I want to feel more confident in doing things like that.

  25. Catherine Ferris says:

    I would love to know how to make mittens I have no idea where to start. I would love my nieces and nephew to have hand made mittens like I did

  26. CarolHS says:

    I love knitting hats, but have never made gloves or mittens. I guess I need to learn everything about them!

  27. Eveline says:

    I would love to learn how I can make mittens that fit me. My hands are quite broad so in store mittens don’t fit and I am tired of wearing the ones for men!
    The mittens and hat on the front page look great!

  28. BarbaraR says:

    I love knitting hats and mittens, especially for charity. I would use this book for inspiration! And I’m sure I would learn something new from it. Thanks for the chance to add this to my knitting library.

  29. Debbie H says:

    I need this book because I’m addicted to knitting mittens and fingerless gloves. I would like to learn twined knitting and intarsia. thanks, Debbie H gussek on Ravelry

  30. Kathy Blackburn says:

    I would like to learn to make thumbs for mittens and to do different colors on hats & mittens.

  31. Gayle says:

    I need this book because I want to learn to pick up double point needles or a magic loop and just go to town on mittens or hats. I want to learn to memorize the thumb part of the mittens and learn new techniques. We need to always keep ourselves open to learning new things. This book can help me do that right?!

  32. Carmen says:

    I want this book for all of the above reasons – learning tips about dpns, Magic Loop method, etc. I have decided I want to make more hats and mittens for charity, so this book would be perfect!

  33. Valerie M says:

    I knit a lot, all kinds of different things, and I’ve been experimenting with different yarns, needles and patterns for a while now. But double pointed needles scare me a little, I don’t know why, it’s completely irrational. I’ve recently bought myself a set of double pointed needles and some lovely merino wool. I haven’t touched them yet, I need some really good patterns to get working on, this book seems just ideal! There’ll be no more excuses then…!

  34. Julie Jane says:

    I’m a beginning knitter, and can’t wait to try mittens.

  35. Ruby Taylor says:

    I have made many hats, but have never had the nerve to tackle mittens or gloves. I would love to learn how to make them….from start to finish! Thanks for the chance to win Carri’s book!!!

  36. Meg M. says:

    I want to make the hat and mittens on the cover! I love them! I also need to learn how to make glove fingers because I’ve promised to make my husband convertible mittens with half glove fingers under the mitten. This book would really help.

  37. Cathryn Heron says:

    I love hats and mittens for my daily bike rides but I have a very small head. It is filled with creative knitting ideas but I need to know more about making hats fit, knitting structured hats or box type hats. They fit those of us with teeny tiny heads better and have a nice flair too. I would also love to learn about mittens and mitten glove combos and gauntlet gloves…also good for outdoor activities! I would love a new book to inspire me to gather some avid knitters together to learn some new skills.

  38. Jane Hansen says:

    I would like to learn stranded color work and working on hats and mittens would be a great small project to learn just that!

  39. Katherine Burns-Christenson says:

    Oh, how I’d love to learn the Magic Loop method. I still feel like I’m all needles when starting a project with DPNS. I can finish with DPNS, no problem. I see a project that begins with DPNS, my knees knock, and well….. I find a different pattern. This book may be just the treatment this knitting gal needs!

  40. Carol Hanson says:

    I like to make hats and mittens (and scarves) for charity and don’t like to use the same design twice so this book would be perfect.

  41. Kathleen Nicholas says:

    Carri is my go-to designer for something quick, different, simple, yet outstanding and I would love to have my very own copy of her Hats & Mittens book. I can do a hat in an evening and always love the result. Many are gifted but when I do wear one, I get many compliments. I love her use of color, she has a great eye.
