Double Alana Dakos Giveaway!


Hi, Knitters,
All photos in today's post are provided by Alana Dakos.

I am back today with another double giveaway! The giveaway today features one of my favorite designers, Alana Dakos. A short while back she released the children's book called, Annie and the Swiss Cheese Scarf. I pre-ordered my deluxe set immediately. This book is a children's picture book that tells the story of a child wanting to learn to knit and how she does just that. At the back of the book there is a knitting instruction section to teach a child to knit. The story is sweet (it is based on Alana's experiences with her own young daughter) and the illustrations are wonderful. 

Here is the description from the website:
About the Author
Alana Dakos is a mother of two and a hopelessly obsessed knitter. She produces a unique line of knitting patterns under the name of "Never Not Knitting" and is the co-author of the 2011 hit Coastal Knits. As a former knitting instructor, Alana has enjoyed teaching countless children to knit as well as her own six-year-old daughter, who helped her with this story. Check out Alana's pattern line, blog, and knitting podcast at NeverNotKnitting.com
About the Illustrator
Neesha Hudson is a freelance illustrator living with her husband in Atlanta, Georgia. Originally from Maine, she studied at Ringling College of Art and Design, focusing on children's book illustration. She now spends her days caring for her beautiful baby girl and drawing everything from knitting needles to nursery art. Find more of Neesha's illustration work at NeeshaHudson.com

The Deluxe Edition Gift Set includes paper dolls (my favorite thing!), stickers, the hardcover book, and a puzzle. It all comes in a neat and tidy box. The set is high quality and just fun and clever! I love everything about the set.

I'll tell you how to win your own deluxe set for Annie and the Swiss Cheese Scarf at the end of the post!



That Alana is a speedy one as she has now released another collection called, Botanical Knits, and it is simply lovely. She offers twelve gorgeous designs inspired by trees and foliage. Included are fingerless mitts, mittens, cardigans, sweaters, hats, a scarf, a shawl and socks. As always, each project is thoughtful and meticulously designed, Alana is a master. I especially love the cardigans and sweater and would love to knit them all.

Below are some important links for you about Alana and the Botanical Knits collection:  


Here is Alana's description of Botanical Knits and the details on how you can order:

Botanical Knits: Twelve Designs inspired by trees and foliage incorporates the natural beauty of plant life into twelve garments and accessories. Included in the twelve are four sweaters for every occasion, a stylish cloche, a matching pair of textured socks and mittens, and an elegant leaf-bordered wrap. Each botanically inspired piece offers both charted and written pattern instructions that are easy to follow and fun to knit.
Purchase the ebook today OR pre-order the printed book HERE for $22 plus shipping at BotanicalKnits.com.
The book is scheduled to arrive in May, but everyone who pre-orders the printed version will receive a complimentary e-book to download right away. This will allow you to get started on your favorite projects while you wait for your book to arrive. As an additional “thank you” for pre-ordering the printed version, I will include a NEW, EXTRA botanically inspired pattern along with your book shipment.

These Spring Foliage Mitts are so sweet and fun. I love the leafy motifs throughout the book.


Autumn's End is an allover lace pattern sweater with clever shaping panels tucked into the sides. I am planning on knitting this one up soon. It's just beautiful. 


The Twigs and Willows cardigan is my personal favorite in the book. It is a simple, classic cardigan with a single branch and leaf motif in the yoke. The cardigan is knit in pieces and seamed and the yarn is Shelter by Brooklyn Tweed.

Alana is an incredibly talented knitter, designer and pattern writer. You will love this leaf-inspired book! 

I am excited to be able to offer you a giveaway from Alana. You have a chance to win the book version of either Botanical Knits or Annie and the Swiss Cheese Scarf - the Deluxe Edition Gift Set. Please leave one comment on this post to enter. You must include either your email address or ravelry id so I can get in touch if you win. I will collect your mailing address so Alana can mail the books directly to the winners. Please only enter once, there is a delay in the posting of the comments so please be patient.

There will be two winners randomly selected, one for each book. Also, in your comment please let me know which book you would like or if you would love either book.

Good luck and let the comments begin!
best, susie

Ooh! I have been following Coastal Knits on Ravelry and LOVE the patterns. AND I have a son and daughter who both recognize Mommy's love of yarn and knitting and want to learn. My one-year-old daughter, Anna, will have to wait until her fine motor skills develop a little more! Haha!

I would love to win "Annie and the Swiss-Cheese Scarf" for my munchkins. I'll just buy Alana's patterns because they are beautiful and a must-have for my collection. :)

Pauly said...

I love both books, and, like you, am especially drawn to the cardigan pattern with the leafy detail on its shoulder. But my book choice would have to be the children's knitting one about Annie and the Swiss Cheese Scarf. With two little granddaughters, who have been the recipients of my own Swiss-cheesy projects, I long for day when one of them will say to me, as I said to my Grandma Elsie, "Do you mean to tell me that out of that piece of string you are going to make me a sweater? This I have to see!"

I did get the Annie book for my nieces (Christmas gift ) but my little ones thought it was so cute they wanted one too.

I have loved the story of the scarf since I first read about it, but have never ordered it. Now i see this new book by Alana, and I want it, too. So if my number/name comes up, you choose secure in the fact I will be thrilled with either one of them.

I would love either book! I think Annie and the Swiss Cheese Scarf looks adorable. I have a young daughter, who is very interested in my knitting. This book would be a perfect way to begin sharing my love of knitting with her!

I would love to win either of the books. I plan to order the Botanical Knits because I love more than one of the patterns! Now that you have shared the Annie and the Swiss Cheese Scarf I know what I need to purchase for my granddaughter when she is just a bit older!! As always, Susan, you bring us the BEST ideas!

Either book would be great - but the childrens book reminds me of my 11 year old's first scarf! Thanks for offering a give away!

I love the new Botanical knits! I am in a sort of shop diet this year, I spent too much last year in yarn, patterns, books that I have to reduce and get no budget this coming winter but I would definetely knit the yellow cardigan, is so beautiful!

Oh Susan, Alana has always been a favourite of mine-such gorgeous childrens clothes caught my eye at first and now gorgeous clothes for us as well, that being said I can't go past the chance to win the childrens book for my daughter who is trying to learn to knit,
Thanks for having another wonderful giveaway,
Much love, Mel

The selfish girl in me wants the botanical knits! However, both my stepson (7) and daugther (4) are trying to learn to knit and I bet the children book would be a great help!

Thanks for a chance to win Susan! I think my girls (and boy!) would love the Annie book. They all have an interest in knitting, even at the young ages of 7, 5 and 3. But mom would love to win either. I love Alana's designs and am so excited she is publishing even more knit patterns! Thanks again! tbmccarthy on Rav

I already own the Annie book so would love to win the botanical knits. motifs from nature are so inspiring.

Love the books and would be happy to have either of them.

I would love to read the tale of Annie's Swiss Cheese Scarf to my new granddaughter when she gets a little older. Can't wait 'til she says " Grammy, will you teach me to knit?"
