A New & Improved Through the Woods Pattern Update

By November 23, 2015 166 Comments



I’m really excited to bring this brand new, shiny update to what is my MOST popular design. I self-published Through the Woods way back in January of 2010. It was only my 8th knitting pattern design. (I now have 67 knit designs.) It eventually grew to become my highest grossing pattern, followed very closely by The Fisherman’s Wife Neckwarmer. So, you can imagine the evolution involved in the design as I, as a Knitter AND as a Designer sharpened my skills and my knowledge.

I’ve decided to take all of the tools, tricks, skills AND knowledge that I’ve accumulated along the way and pack it into a NEW revised version of the pattern.

If you’ve worked this pattern before and you often wondered if the process could be fine-tuned a bit or even sped up (for that Gift Giving Rush!), I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised by this new version.

But if you’re new to this design and have not yet purchased the pattern, I’d love to see what you think! This new version is chalk-full of step-by-step photos to help guide you along the construction of the hood. I’ve also created TWO helpful photo tutorials that are available HERE on my website, that you’ll have special access to once you’ve purchased the pattern.

I want this pattern (as with ALL of my designs) to be a learning experience for you. I just love teaching through the art of pattern writing. And knowing that someone may have learned a new technique or just another way to do a particular thing, makes my heart smile.

For this pattern update launch, I’ll be offering a special Promo on the pattern itself. But it will only be available on Ravelry. (Sorry, this does not mean a refund or discount on previous purchases.) For those of you who have not yet bought the pattern or would like to buy it for a friend, I’m giving you a special discount code that will give you HALF off the full pattern price. So, it will be just $2, instead of $4.) This Promo Price will expire at the end of the month. (November 30th, 2015) Use discount code: update

Purchase the “Through the Woods” pattern:

Of course, if you  already own the pattern, you’ll have already been emailed an update of the pattern through the site where you purchased it. Be it Craftsy, Ravelry or Knit Picks. If you have not received an update but you do have a receipt that you can reference, please feel free to email me directly and I’ll make sure you receive the new version.  🙂


Now, naturally this leads me to the part that I’m sure many of you look forward to…


You’ll receive:

  • (1) Hank of Cascade Eco Wool in YOUR color preference, wound into a pretty, workable Cake! ($22)
  • (5) Handmade Austrian Pine Buttons made in the Walla Walla Valley by my very talented dad, Glenn. ($10)
  • (1) A printed copy of the Through the Woods pattern (14 full color, hi-res photo packed pages)

    I made this hood and it was fun and looks beautiful. I would love to win and knit another one!

  • Tricia says:

    I would make this for my beloved daughter who is having such a difficult time at the moment, with love in every stitch.

  • Kathleen says:

    After squeeing! and Dancing! And joyously handclapping? I will be excited to snuggle the yarn and then knit this up feeling all the good happy juju and pleasure at the amazing design made for we knitters with such care. Hugs and happy wishes!

  • MGG says:

    I’ve made one in an emerald green, I might want to add another color to my collection 🙂 Am presently making one for a dear friend, actually. It’s in a pretty brown.
    I love your Winter Knits Collection book! I’ve made three sets of The Fisherman’s Wife cowl and beret (awesome gifts), and am working on one more. Hahaha I couldn’t resist, one of those sets is all mine!
    Sooooo, I really like your patterns HAHAHAHA
    Great work!

  • Elizabeth Feller says:

    I would love to win this to make for myself. I volunteer two days a week for the Mountlake Terrace, WA food bank, where I get my food. We work for 5 hours a day and as we are in the open and I have MS I don’t tolerate the cold very well. I found the pattern on Google when I did a search for cowl hoodies and fell in love with it.

    Unfortunately, I just tried to purchase the pattern and after I put in my CC info it did not take me to a 2nd page to review the information and put in the code update for the $2.00 off. All it did was go back to a blank purchase page. I am hoping it did not overdrawn my CA plus I really want to purchase the pattern. It also would not let me leave a comment.

    I would really appreciate your assistance. Elizabeth

  • MissCynomys says:

    I would gift the hood to my mother. 🙂

  • TrishKnits says:

    Through the Woods is so pretty and romantic. Cables are my all-time favourite thing to knit. I just love the squishy texture. I know my daughter would love this beautiful hood, but I’m guessing I’d have a very difficult time parting with it. 😉

  • Jennifer Gaddie says:

    I would take up my needles simply for the love of knitting, the joy of the sensation a new yarn sliding through my fingers, losing myself in a lovely printed pattern, and finishing with truly one of a kind buttons – knowing that what I’ve just experienced can never be repeated.

    In short, I don’t know who I’d make it for, I just want to make this pattern! 😉

  • Catherine McCurdy says:

    I made this hood for a friend of mine about three years ago for Christmas. She absolutely loves it, still. I keep telling myself that one day I’ll make one for myself, but gifts always take priority in my knitting basket. Last March my husband and I moved to the woods, the Cohutta National Forest, and I we just completed my very first fiber studio. I would love to sit in the there and knit this project once again, but this time for me. 🙂

    • Alexandra Woods says:

      A wonderfully cabled hooded cowl – I would love to make it for long walks thru the Winer landscapes. I have admired this pattern for several years! Thanks for a chance.

  • Kim says:

    I love this pattern! It covers all my “Loves”.. love of cables, my granddaughter’s love for hats and my love to make something so wonderful that my granddaughter has to think of me every time she wears it! She has left the home now and is in college. She rides her bike and walks to most of her classes. Now that it’s Cold weather she needs more Hats! 😀

  • Lisa F. says:

    This is beautiful! I would make this for both of my daughters!

  • Jennifer says:

    if I were to win, I’d make the hood for my teenage daughter 😀

  • Jennifer says:

    This pattern is one of the first that really made me want to start knitting!

  • Michelle Chua says:

    For my daughter, she is going to Jeju Island for her honeymoon…cold winter!

  • Cyndi Olson says:

    I would make this one for my best friend!

  • Michelle Chua says:

    I will knit it for my daughter who has just got married and is going for their honeymoon!

  • Kathy says:

    What a sweet idea! Thanks…definately the “Hood” and well, I like to knit it and then give it….as I’m inspired. God is my Helper in all things…He’s my inspiration.

  • I would love to make one for myself and for my Goddaughter who is at Notre Dame!

  • After I made one for myself, I would make at least one more for charity – in this case, a homeless person would benefit from such a lovely warm design!

  • ReneeInez says:

    Would love a red hood to wear with my hood-less wool jacket! This prize would have to be for me. 🙂

  • Karine says:

    I would make one for a refugy, and one for me 🙂

  • Ale says:

    I would make a hood for myself, to stay warm. It is so cold already!

  • Diane P. says:

    If I win, I’ll make your design for a friend back in New England. I make her knitted woolies each year to help keep her warm, and this pattern would far exceed the cowls I’ve been sending her. And it’s a lovely patter to boot! Thank you.

  • I cannot lie, I would knit this for myself.
    Love that the buttons were made by your Dad!!!!
    Would love to make your pattern and finally use some Eco. 🙂

  • I cannot lie, I would totally make this for myself to wear with my purple coat in the same color as yours.
    Love that the buttons were made by your Dad!!!! 🙂

  • ditd says:

    Should I win, I’d knit myself a nice warm hood for the winter up ahead.

  • Cindy Miller says:

    I would make it for me unless my daughter decides she must have it. If that is the case I will make another = )

  • I would love to say I’d knit a hood and gift it, but there could be a possibility I’d keep it for myself!! But if I do end up gifting it, it’ll most likely go to my mom. 🙂

  • mrsroblken says:

    I would knit it for my 16 year old grand daughter!

  • donnac368 says:

    I would cast on for this lovely pattern right away! It has a timelessness quality and would be just as beautiful an accessory now as it was in 2010.

  • ij says:

    Hi Kahlura – want to thank you for sending the update automatically to those of us who had previously purchased your pattern – the step by step photos are really helpful and very clear, I hadn’t yet attempted the pattern but I feel more confident that I can knit this pattern (although I”ll be sitting in front of my computer the whole time I think instead of on the couch)

    • aisha says:

      It is a lovely pattern! I would like to make it for myself when I have a moment. It would be good excuse to find the time.

  • I would make a hood for my mom who is going through cancer treatments and needs a hood to keep her warm

  • Laura S. says:

    I would make this as a “prayer” gift. I have recently begun knitting not just prayer shawls, buy pray hats, mitts, scarves, wraps and more. I give them to people as God leads me to. I pray while making them and, once I know who it is meant fir, I pray specifically for that person as I give it to them.

  • Catrina Lyttle says:

    I’d make one for my mum 🙂

  • Sydney says:

    I would shamelessly make a hood for myself!

  • Suzanne says:

    I would make this for me! I keep meaning to, but other things take the priority with kids and career, so my knitting is very slow. But I would make the time if I had the yarn and buttons on hand already!

  • I think I’d give it to my mom. She’s always cold and isn’t really a hat person!

  • twospottedcats says:

    I get awfully chilly walking through the woods to my grandmother’s house, so if I knit this charming hood again, it will be for myself. In red, I believe. I quite fancy a red hood.

  • Krista Hyde says:

    I originally bought this pattern to knit it for a friend…and then time got away with me, and I ended up making something else for her. I recently learned she’s going through a hard time, so I think if I won, I’d (finally!) make it for her.

  • justliz says:

    I knitted my Through the Woods in 2011 and it has been a constant companion in the Winter months ever since. Its been a hard few years for me and I just love my Hood. I have knitted it a couple of itmes for friends adn Irelaly soudl knit a new one for me as its maybe a wee bit tired looking… but we are in ti for hte long hail. If I won this pattern, much as I’d love hte yarn, I’d give it away to soemone who doesnt have the money to spend on themsleves, and deserves a treat.

    • Wendy Melanson says:

      I purchase the pattern to make two as gifts for Christmas.I am just finishing the first one as received the update from you via Ravelry.Love the update it is great! if I win I would make one for myself💖Thank you

  • kmhausle says:

    I would make one for me and my niece. We both have tiny heads so I can usually make two for the price of one, as it were. LOL

  • Anne-Marie says:

    I gave away my first one to a friend, so I think the next one would be for me. In bright red, of course :o)

    • Melissa Phelps-Utter says:

      Leaving in New England it gets very cold here. I have a friend who has just gone through her 3rd round of chemo. I would make it for her as she is always cold.

  • Dinah Miller says:

    I will make it for myself if I win! Lovely giveaway 🙂

  • Christine says:

    Truth be told, I hate hats, which is why I want to knit this hood for myself. It’s a not-a-hat.

  • Gina says:

    I think I’d like to make one for myself. I did a set for a friend to share with her family last year.

  • Kristi says:

    I think it is a lovely looking hood…I of course want one for myself! And in this colorway too. I haven’t yet made one with my pattern, but if I had the yarn, already caked and ready to go, what could I possibly need to wait for?

  • JoannaB says:

    So after I win, I’ll do a little happy dance, then I’ll sit right down and knit this up into a terrific gift for a loved one! <3

  • Nancy Jo says:

    What are the changes in the updated pattern? I made one for a friend last winter and thoroughly enjoyed the making of it and the end product. I need to knit another one for myself!

  • matoca says:

    I am making three more of these for Christmas gifts and appreciate the updated pattern very much!

  • Stephanie C. says:

    Hmmm, honestly I would keep this one. I love a good hood to snuggle into.

  • Isa W. says:

    I already knit this once – sad story that ended in me trying to felt it to make it smaller! Yeah…it became a floor rag! I’d love to knit myself another one with the updated pattern – I see the hood is shaped much better.

  • Marie Sagers says:

    I would make a beautiful hood for my daughter. She was the one I originally thought of when I saw this pattern. Thanks for the chance to win!

  • Sophie says:

    I would make the hood for myself in the colourway pictured. It is the most perfect red!

  • anne says:

    for once i would keep this as a Christmas gift for myself… i have knitted several as gifts (as most of my projects are) and lately Ive been busy knitting charity hats and scarves …. but this has always been a favourite pattern and Id love a special one one … just for me ..

  • Amy Mason says:

    I already own the pattern, so I would gift it to someone! (maybe not the yarn and buttons? Selfish a little bit?)

  • laineyhf says:

    If I win this wonderful prize I would make this pattern for my sister. She lives in Maryland and it gets so cold there in the winter.

  • I’ve owned a digital copy of the pattern for a couple years but haven’t found just the right yarn or time to make it. I’ve recently fallen in love with hooded cowls/scoodies/harfs and I’m on a quest to make them the next “must-have” accessory, so I would cast on immediately and wear the finished object daily while shopping for yarn to make several more for friends to get the trend started!

  • mamawitch666 says:

    Love the hooded pattern…. would make it for my dd who lives in the cold,cold city

  • Kelly says:

    I will make a hood for me if I win 🙂 Thanks!

  • Gretchen says:

    I’ve been holding onto this pattern since it came out to make for myself – and if I like it – to make more for a good friend.

  • photogmomma says:

    Gosh! I’m not sure if I’d give it to one of my daughters or keep it for myself! We live someplace cold so it would be put to good use for sure!

  • Sallyhp says:

    I would knit it as a holiday gift!

  • I’d finally knit one for myself!

  • Andrea says:

    I couldn’t leave my comment on the giveaway (simply didn’t know how, silly me). But I really wanted you to know I don’t knit. My mom, sister and grandmother does. (I’m more like a painting kind). When I saw your design I thought “I should do this!!!” and I tried…but I couldn’t, I think I don’t have it in me. So I asked my sister to do it for me… Back in 2012… I still don’t have it and I’ve dream about having it for sooooo long!! I don’t know if my dream will be true, but I want to let you know that this design have made my mind blow. I love it and always will, even tho if I’m never able to wear it. (I like to watch the pics one in a while and imagination my self in it). That’s all, I’m sorry for the longest story ever!!! Hehe I admire your talent and all the knitters out there!! You’re amaring artists!! Thank you for existing!!

  • Jane L. says:

    I’d love to make this again in red. Looks like a storybook knit!

  • Right now I’m really excited about the refugees who will soon be arriving in Ontario. It’s cold here now, and if I win I would definitely make this to donate to keep someone warm

  • Teresa says:

    I made this for my daughter. I would love one for me. Selfish knitting 🙂

  • Pepper says:

    Knitting that hood has always been on my bucket list of yarn projects! And I’m not sure if it would be for me or someone else. Most likely me because I’d fall in love with the yarn and have loved that hood since my eyes first landed on it

  • Heather says:

    I will make (another) one for me! So wonderfully cozy, and the wardrobe needs multiple colors.

  • Elaine says:

    I absolutely love this pattern and it would totally be a selfish knitting project. A “me” knit since I’m going crazy with Christmas crafting 🙂

  • Tina Moser says:

    I would totally make one for my littlest niece, who would be so adorable in it! I might even be able to squeeze out 2 of them (I’m a tight knitter!) Thanks for the opportunity to win!

  • Shawn says:

    I would have to make one for myself (selfish knitting) as I very rarely knit things to keep.

  • Margie Jarrett says:

    I think I would be a bit selfish and knit it for myself. I might let my daughter “look but not touch.” If she were to touch it, I’d lose it to her. Would probably end up making her one as well. Thank you for designing this lovely pattern.

  • Tabitha says:

    I would knit hoods for my 3 girls and myself!

  • Denise says:

    I’m knitting it for myself as I just cut my hair short and therefore need it!

  • Nancy says:

    Love this pattern, I have been wanting to add it to my While they Play collection.,

  • Melissa says:

    I’d knit two, one for me and one for my best friend. 😊

  • Nancy Matheny says:

    Love this pattern and the set makes t such a great accessory, thanks for all your great patterns.

  • Amy S says:

    I would make this for my sister 🙂

    • Jacquie Allman says:

      So excited for the update. I made this for one of my twin daughters and did get a little hung up on the instructions last time. Now I can knit another for my other daughter!

  • Denise Greer says:

    I made this a few years ago (it is on my project page at Ravelry) and lost it in the process of a move across country. If I won, I would make another one. I really miss it!

  • Donna Clanton says:

    I would SO knit this for myself!!

  • Kittenears says:

    Oh no doubt I would knot it for me. Especially since child wind makes my ears hurt so terribly.

    But like everything I knit if my sister ends up seeing it and liking it I’ll end up making her one, too. ,)

  • Donna Clanton says:

    I would definitely be ‘selfish’ and knit this for myself 🙂

  • I will be making one for myself and my two daughters. Since moving to a colder climate, I am finding it necessary to have things like this.

  • I will be making one for myself and my two daughters. I’ve realized since moving to a colder climate that these things are necessary here. Thanks! – Heather Macias

  • Mary Beth Hatheway says:

    I just started this pattern so I’m glad there is a new update. If I win, I would make more hoods in different colors to match my other coats.

  • I bought this pattern awhile ago, just got the update. It is wrong that I want to make this for me? I love hoods. I hate hats. And this pattern is the best of all since it is a hood/cowl/scarf. Perfect when the winter winds blow off of Lake Erie and through downtown Cleveland!

  • auritap says:

    I will make another one for myslef with the changes in the updated pattern

  • Marion B. says:

    Mine, all mine! Despite having been knitting for 50-mumble years, I’m still somewhat cautious about cables, and something gorgeous like this is possibly just the thing to get me working them confidently.

  • ijowitt says:

    Hi Kalurah – I love your design – I would make the first one for myself because it would have all the mistakes on it from learning how to knit it properly – then, I would make one for my sister, and my mother, and my nieces and then my daughter-in-love, my sister-in-love and maybe even my mother-in-love (but I’m not really sure she would like it as I don’t think it’s her style but she lives up North in Thunder Bay where they have seriously cold winters so maybe she would love it just because it’ll keep her so warm)

  • Marion B. says:

    Oh, mine, all mine! Despite having been knitting for 50-mumble years, I’m still somewhat cautious about cables, so something gorgeous like this is possibly just the thing to get me working them confidently.

  • Carole says:

    I made this for my daughter years ago but I never quite got the collar construction right. If I won I’d make her another one! Thanks for the update either way.

  • Ellen says:

    I made the original pattern for my daughter. She doesn’t like to wear hats, but lives in an area with COLD winters, so this pattern proved to be winner! I would make one for my other daughter, who is waiting patiently for hers!

  • Nicole Kent says:

    I would knit it for myself. I have thick curly hair, so hats never feel good on my head- no matter how loose or tight a hat fits it always feels like my hair is trying to pop it off. A hood is perfect because it keeps me warm but doesn’t have to fight my hair to stay on.

  • Jo Derouin says:

    I would make the pattern. I live in Upstate NY and get plenty of snow and cold weather

  • Tempe Croke says:

    I love this design! So if I were to win the giveaway, I think I’d make it for myself!

  • LianneLianne says:

    I would make the hood for myself, because most of the things I make are for someone else

  • Helen says:

    I would love to say I would knit this for a friend but I can’t – I want to keep it all for myself!!!

  • Helen says:

    I would love to say that I would knit this for a friend but I can’t – I want it all for myself!!!

  • yarnardent says:

    If I were to win this wonderful packet I’d knit the Through The Woods for myself. It’s been on my wish list for quite some time.

  • Andrea Pilgram says:

    If I would win, I would love to knit this lovely hood for myself. Selfish me, but winter is coming and it’s getting cold. And I would love to wrap me up in such a cozy item. Thanks for the chance to win. 🙂

  • Tricia says:

    As I am currently knitting a TTW hood for my niece, I would make one for me this time! The pattern update is very welcome, thank you!

  • Babaruda says:

    I’d knit it for my niece who lives in cold at winter time Poland

  • Joanne Watson says:

    Winter is just starting here so I would make this for my daughter.

  • Renee Maine says:

    I would make this for my daughter.

  • Michelle O'Donnell says:

    I have to admit, I’d most likely make this for myself, especially on the first go with the pattern. Winters in New England = wicked cold! 😉

  • Knitcave says:

    I have always planned to make this lovely pattern for me, to keep me snug and warm. I have it in my plans to spin the yarn but how much better to be able to use such a lovely yarn for this pretty pattern.

  • Leandrea Carpenter says:

    I made this pattern ages ago and it has been my deep winter staple for several years, however it takes me forever to take it out because it’s black and it makes me sad that the cables don’t show really at all. I would love to make another one!

  • Id make another Fisherman’s wife for a friend

  • Jessica Webb says:

    I would totally make it for me! I’ve had the pattern forever but unfortunately I haven’t gotten around to knitting it yet. This might just give me the jumpstart I need!

  • Amber says:

    I will knit the hood for my niece. She lives in New York and I know she’d love it for winter.

  • Karen warren says:

    Wow, this is perfect for so many people. I likely would knit this for a family member (mom or sister), and another for donation as I usually do to others in need. Wrenknits on Ravelry

  • Michelle Chua says:

    I will knit it and gift it to my newly-wed daughter who is going to Seoul with her husband, and it will be winter by then.

  • Kate says:

    If I won I’d probably make one for myself first and then one for my sister!

  • Courtney says:

    If I won I’d knit this for myself or my aunt because she loves all the things I knit.

  • Rena Guth says:

    I’d make it for myself because it is just too cute to give away!

  • Rena Guth says:

    I would like to say that I would gift it to someone I love but I do that all the time!! This time I would make it for myself so I can make a matching sweater for my cute weenie dog Lucy and we can go far long walks in snowy north Idaho.
    thank you 🙂

  • Katrina says:

    I’d make one for myself! It’s so cold here in Montreal already!

  • Anneli Katajaranta says:

    I would make the hood for my friends:)

  • Tracy Blevins says:

    I would not it for my sister. It’s as lovely as she.

  • Debbie Mcp says:

    I will make it for my son’s girlfriend. She would look great in the hood!

  • Jacqlin Cannon says:

    So beautiful! The model and the color choice. I’ve made two so far. One for my daughter-in-law, she says she loves it! The second was too warm to wear last year so it’s waiting for a real chill! I’d love to knit another from your revised pattern to give to…?

  • Debra Coker says:

    Unfortunately, my friend who first brought this lovely pattern to my attention is allergic to wool so, if I win, I’ll make it either for myself or my daughter-in-law.

  • Fernie says:

    I would finally knit one for myself. I have knitter several for other people since I originally received the pattern. I think since I do work outside most of the cold cold days of winter, I think I should have a nice warm hood to wear while tending to the farm critters.

  • Lenora says:

    I purchased this pattern over a year ago because I couldn’t pass it up. It will be something for me, though I’m sure my sister(s) will want one for themselves once they see it!

  • Miriam Olsen says:

    I would make this for my oldest daughter as she works outside most days.

  • Kirsten says:

    If I won, I’d gift the finished object to my friend in Colorado. Her birthday is in the beginning of the year and I know she would love it and wear it often during the cold months.

  • Jennifer Blythe says:

    What a generous giveaway! If I win I’d love to make one in a shade of green. I made one in red with matching fingerless gloves.

  • Heather says:

    I was just going to make this for a friend when your update came out. Looking forward to seeing the changes. 🙂

  • Wendie says:

    I would make this one for me since my mom already has one!

  • Tamara says:

    If I won, I’d use it to teach the children of a refugee family who I and a large group of friends are helping sponsor to find peace in Canada. And I’d supplement it with more yarn so we could make them a couple of super long scarves to stay warm and creative this winter.

  • Tracy Vincent says:

    I love this pattern. If I win the giveaway, I would make this beautiful hood to keep me warm. I knit a lot for others and sometimes I just need something pretty for myself. 🙂

  • Laurie says:

    I would make one for my Aunt, we work together and she walks to work in all kinds of weather

  • Lynda says:

    I would be so happy to win this prize. I have the pattern already and I would knit the hood for my son’s new wife. It would be a special first project to knit for her.

  • Crystal Lopez says:

    As much as I would luuuv to keep it for myself, I know I would end up knitting this for my sister who lives in Washington D.C. where the winters are much, much colder than anything I experience out in California. I made her a hooded scarf three years ago (which she loves and still wears), so she’s due for another, and I can’t think of a lovelier one to make! Thanks for such an awesome giveaway!

  • Michelle says:

    I would love to knit this pattern for my daughter and her cousin, both teenagers, for Christmas. Then again for myself after Christmas. Thank you for the opportunity to win!

  • Lori Veteto says:

    I can’t wait to try out this new version!

  • Susan says:

    I would make it for me for my 74th birthday in February. And perhaps a matching hooded coat for my
    Little dog so we could match when we take our walks.

  • Lillian Voigt says:

    If I were to win, Id knit it for myself and were it out quite a bit as I live where it sometimes snows and always rains. Id knit one in different solid colors too so I could have it match most of my outfits.
    I love hoods and the fact that it looks just as good down on my back as iver my head.
    Id add special spice to it too with a few antler buttons on the side of one of them.
    I love hoods, but just adore this one!

  • Sam Madrus says:

    Oh man, if I won I would make one for myself!!! I’m pregnant, so my torso has plenty of warmth, but my head and neck catch the chill quite easily.

  • Babette C. says:

    If I won, I would love to make this one for my mother. I really like I made for myself several years ago, and I think she’d like one too. Thanks for the invitation to participate in the contest!

  • Jamie Hicks says:

    If I won this awesome prize, I would like to make the hood for my grandmother, along with those cute mitts. This December is her 80th birthday! <3

  • Lara Muse says:

    I would make it for my daughter!

  • chrystal says:

    Thank you so much for offering the prize. If I were to win, I would gift it to a friend who would look fabulous in the TTW hood.
    Thank you

  • Amy Hansen says:

    This is a great looking pattern. I would make this as a Christmas present for my niece, we’re I to win.

  • Phoenixfire says:

    I would love to knit this pattern, and it would be perfect for my mom to wear on her winter walks.

  • Renee says:

    If I were to win, I’d likely practice my knitting to make it for myself, or try a crochet version.

  • Michele says:

    What would I do if I won….hmmm….knit Through the Woods for myself!!! I would just love to wrap up in this knit!

  • Mokihana says:

    I would absolutely LOVE to win! If I do, I would make this for myself, because I’m whimsical, quirky, and think outside the box kind of person who isn’t intimidated by any fashion police. I’d wear this proudly and happily, and I bet I’d get tons of fabulous comments on it! Thanks for chance to win!

  • Tania says:

    Thanks for the giveaway

  • cwknitnut says:

    I would definitely make it for myself! That way the next time I ditch my pickup & it lands on it’s side I would have something warm on my head & hands when I’m rescued!!! It really happened – thank God I wasn’t hurt. Oh, & the pickup is ok to, just minus a mirror & a couple new dents!

  • Marina says:

    If I’ll get the prize, I would definitely knit a beautiful piece and will send it overseas to someone who really need it. Its summer time in Australia now, but even in winter its not getting close to snow anyway 🙂

  • alicia grayson says:

    I’d love to make myself a Through the woods hood!

  • Laura C. says:

    What would I do if I won? You mean after the giggly dance of happiness, and after the endorphins have subsided so I could feel my feet on the ground again? Well, I’d send a huge thanks to you and then knit Through the Woods, and be cozy all winter, and every winter thereafter, until the snow melts! I love how your contests are so “what if” or “what would you do” or “what’s your favorite”–just entering is fun! Thanks, and congratulations on the revision of such a beloved pattern.

  • Jean says:

    If I were to win, January starts the birthday season again and I would possibly give it to my friend if I had the opinion that she liked the design. Her birthday is in January and it is cold here in January.

Please, let me know what you think...
