Week 2 of Knit Happy in the New Year

With the holidays behind us, it’s finally time to treat ourselves.
Interweave is thrilled to offer five giveaways in the month of January
from the pages of Interweave Knits Holiday 2016.


Week 2: Jan Brett–inspired kits!


This week’s giveaway is two kits right out of the pages of Interweave Knits Holiday 2017.

We have projects inspired by two of Jan Brett’s books, The Turnip and The Hat.

You Have a Chance to Win…
(warning: it’s a lot of loot, kids!)


The Hat Stocking Kit ($24 value)

The Hat Stocking is an interpretation of the stocking illustrated in The Hat by Jan Brett (New York: G.P. Putnam’s Sons, 1997). In the book, the stocking is sported as a hat by a curious hedgehog; in our interpretation, the “hat” has been made into a Christmas stocking, into which you could tuck a copy of The Hat for Christmas morning.
