Kelbourne Woolens Blog Tour: Selbu Modern

kelwoolensvol1I’ve always loved Kate & Courtney’s yarns and designs, so I’m excited to be a part of their blog tour celebrating their new collection, Kelbourne Woolens Volume 1.

This is a compilation of their older patterns, including several that are available as free downloads on Ravelry (such as my favorite, Selbu Modern).  However, in this collection, per the book notes on Ravelry, all of the patterns have been “re-edited, rehashed and improved upon your knitting enjoyment”.

They’re doing something a bit different with the blog tour:  we’re supposed to create an outfit around our favorite pattern.  Fun!  I’ve not really played with Polyvore, but here goes an outfit that you could wear with your Selbu Modern hat.  I’m going for a comfy, classic feel, which is what I think the hat is all about.

Here’s a full pic of the hat, in a different colorway:


What is your favorite pattern from the book?  Leave your comment on this post, by midnight PST March 7 2013, for a chance to win a signed hardcopy of the book!  Make sure you leave me a way to contact you.  US addresses only, thanks!

    I can’t decide between the Hawthorn and Winthrop cardis.

    I still like Mountain Ash best, but the Winthrop cardi is growing on me

  • Bordergirl February 28, 2013, 3:10 pm

    It’s a collection of beautiful patterns. However, my favorite remains the Springtime Bandit.

    I love the Hawthorne and the Selbu modern.

  • Anne March 1, 2013, 6:16 am

    In general, I like ALL their patterns, but I’ve had the Hiker’s Waistcoat on my to-knit list for eons. Definitely my favorite out of that collection.

  • MelodyJ March 2, 2013, 12:20 am

    I like Alice scarf.

  • Kate Pultz March 3, 2013, 9:39 pm

    I love the hiker’s waistcoat…! on ravelry: katiebird

    The ever popular hoot and selbu have been on my radar, and thank you so much for introducing me to hawthorn and the hiker’s waistcoat!! Hawthorn, in particular, for its mixing of structure with the sweet gather at the wrist. This would help me learn several new techniques in one pattern. Nice offer, blessings 🙂

  • Courtney March 4, 2013, 5:56 am

    All their patterns are gorgeous, but I particularly like the hat patterns, especially Selbu Modern and Kiva Hattu.

  • Zabbers March 4, 2013, 10:21 pm

    I love Mountain Ash.

  • Katie March 5, 2013, 6:49 am

    I love the Selbu Modern I made a few years ago. My first project from the book would be Hawthorn!

  • Toby March 5, 2013, 10:13 am

    I’ve always loved Selbu Modern, but in looking at all the patterns in the book I discovered the Winthrop cardie. Love the little details in this!

    I really like the Springtime in Philadelphia hat!

  • stillness on Ravelry March 6, 2013, 10:48 am

    Your polyvore set is beautiful! I can’t wait to cast on mountain ash and explore the lacework. Then Hawthorn and the hiker’s waistcoat.

  • Turner March 6, 2013, 3:33 pm

    I love the Alice cowl!

  • Chelsey March 7, 2013, 8:39 am
