NNK Pattern Giveaway

I've been doing a lot of graphic design work for Alana or Never Not Knitting. I feel very lucky to work with her and her beautiful designs. I recently finished the layout on four of her awesome patterns. The layouts for these patterns are works of art! All original designs and oh so pretty. Alana is so nice and a great art director. I'm excited to do more design work for her and her sweet pattern line.


Recently, she sent me printed copies of her patterns (see all of them HERE). She also put in doubles of the designs that I worked on… so that means GIVEAWAY!!! Yup, leave me a comment. Let me know what you think of her pattern line. I'd love to hear from you! I'll draw a winner sometime next week.

If you can't wait to see if you've won these four. Her whole line can be bought as downloadable pdfs of Alana's patterns HERE and her printed patterns are available through yarn shops.

In the meantime, I'm thinking I need to cast on for Molly first!

Cute designs for kids and even for adults, too! Might have to add a pattern or two to my wishlist.

LD said...

I think the designs are absolutely gorgeous. Really - a coherence to them that makes them distinctive, but they're each distinctive in their own way, too. Just lovely!

Megan said...

Would love to own any of them. Thanks!

I love Alana's patterns. I feel like they're simple to knit (you know, not too much seaming or crazy amounts of finishing) but are still so beautiful and elegant. I just finished knitting the Cedar Leaf Shawlette!

grammynan said...

Alana's designs are so sweet and perfect ideas for my 2 yo grand
daughter. Looking forward to your giveaway! thanks.

Tanya said...

I Love the look of these patterns and would love to have a set for my very own. I just bought the digital Shawl Collared cowl and LOVE IT!! The pattern seems to be very well written.

I've always wanted to try Alana's patterns. Thanks for having the giveaway. Her designs are so very pretty.

Rebecca said...

Very sweet patterns and graphics, you both have done a wonderful job. I have been meaning to knit the Spring garden tee for my wee girl for awhile now. This is just the inspiration I need. thanks for the giveaway

Kay said...

Great Job. They truely are the nicest patterns I have ever seen.

Wow, they're all so awesome! I really like the cowl and the adult tee, though. I like the kid's hoodie, too. The graphic design is gorgeous and I love that the patterns are printed on card stock. I'll bet they're even more beautiful in person.

lea said...

I love NNK patterns and it looks as though they are beautifully put together in printed versions. Thank you for the opportunity.

Denise said...

I am in love with Alana's new patterns, love the scrapbook look. I have a local store nearby that is apparently a stockist of the patterns, I've never been there before (it's a sewing shop more than a yarn shop) but I can't wait to check it out... or I might even be lucky enough to win some ;)

I love Alana's patterns and have made several. The new designs are so pretty and being a scrapbooker they really appeal to me! Clever idea!

I love Alana's work! The only design I've made so far is the Cedar Leaf Shawlette, but I know it won't be the last of her designs I make!

I'm so glad the two of you are working together. What a great partnership!

Just wanted to stop by and give you kuddos on the graphic. Not only are the patterns beautiful but so is the paper pattern itself. I am thinking of buying a few just to frame them to give my knitting area some pizzazz.
