Duplex Cowl: A Scarf Style 2 book and yarn Giveaway!

Remember last week when I said this book showed up at my door?  Well it was an extra good mail day as I got TWO copies instead of one! So, it's time to tell you about my design, Duplex, in Ann Budd's new collection Scarf Style 2 AND hold a giveaway so you can knit your own!

Duplex... giveaway

Duplex is a cowl that can be worn around the neck or the shoulders.  It is a "fauxbius" constructed of alternating garter stitch and stockinette short row row triangles separated by eyelets.  A fauxbius is merely a rectangle, begun with a provisional cast on, and then worked to the desired length.  Before grafting you flip your rectangle thus creating a moebius!

Duplex from Scarf Style 2

I did get some great shots on Caitlin when we went on a road trip to Webs right before I shipped Duplex off to Interweave... I do love me an rusty old iron bridge!

Duplex from Scarf Style 2

I used Dream in Color Smooshy for Duplex in grey tabby... I was sent two skeins, and only ended up using one as I made the small.  Any fingering weight sock yarn will do... I think it would be really nice in something with a little cashmere too : )!

Who wants to win my extra skein of yarn and extra copy of Scarf Style 2? 
Just leave a comment by the end of the day on August 25th.... do you have any ideas of a yarn you have in stash that might be good for this design?

I can't wait to start seeing more Duplex's being knit!  Don't forget to leave a way for me to get in touch with you!

  2. What a beautiful pattern, Laura. I'm having a hard time coming up with a sock yarn in my stash that would NOT look lovely in this pattern! Okay, maybe my pink and white self-striping might not work; but maybe it WOULD for spring and summer! Great job. Love the photos. Rav amchart

  3. Another lovely design Laura. As much as I love Dream in Color Smooshy, I also have a skein of 100% alpaca that would make a lovely cowl.

  4. What a pretty pattern. I, too, have a few sock yarns that would look lovely in this pattern.

  5. I NEED THIS!!! I have SO MANY sock/fingering yarns that will work for this

  7. Why yes, I'd love to win both the book and the fiber! The cowl is beautiful!

  8. I love the simplicity of your cowl and think that it'd look great in indigodragonfly's Merino Silk in Sargasm.

    ReplyDelete
  9. Another fabulously wearable design - I look forward to making this. I have some semi-solid sock yarn in stash that would be good for this, including some Smooshy with Cashmere. Great staging backdrop, too!

    ReplyDelete
  10. I've got a skein of smooshy called Chinatown Apple that I think would be peeerrrrfect.

    ReplyDelete
  11. I love Ann Budd's books and this new one looks as if it will be no exception. I have many beautiful sock weight yarns to choose from but would love to win your extra skein of Dream In Colour Smooshy in grey tabby - your Duplex looks lovely in this colour. I go by "Oneday Designs" on Ravelry

  12. Love Scarf Style one, so I'm sure #2 is just as good if not better (especially with your great pattern in it!)

  13. Yummmmm! This is so lovely! I'd adore making it in any one of a variety of colors — and what a great gift it would make for the holidays. :)

    ReplyDelete
  14. Love the color of the yarn. I don't have anything in my stash that would look as good in your pattern.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Ooo! Love the color and the shape!!

  16. As it happens, "Scarf Style" is on my knitting bookshelf at home! I have a fair amount of yarn that might work for the cowl, but I love love love that grey!!

  18. I really like the simplicity and the structure of this cowl. It would be great for fall coming soon. DIC Smooshy is one of my favorite yarn (I love the colors, the bounciness and sheen of it), but that's true: a cashmere yarn would also be a great option for this cowl. I have a skein of Optics Fibers Kashmir in a nice semi-solid brown in my stash that would work great for it!

  36. I love this little project. I have looked at it several times. I have lots of possibilities in my stach to make this little gem, several with cashmere and a couple alpaca, too.

  40. I would love this book-I love the 1st one too. I have lots of handspun yarn that would look great in your pattern.

    ReplyDelete
  41. What a great design! I think the Plucky Knitter's Primo Fingering would work incredibly well with this pattern. This book looks fantastic. I love the first one. Thanks for doing this giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  42. I have a cartoonishly huge amount of fingering weight yarns, though I think I'd choose to make this in Tanis Fiber Arts Blue Label in the Pink Granite colorway (it's a soft pinkish/purplish grey color, and is sadly a OOAK colorway).
    I'm loving a lot of patterns in this book, though it's quite possible my biggest reason for wanting it is that there's actually a pattern with my fairly-uncommon name in it.

    ReplyDelete
  43. I have a skein of Dream in Color Starry in my stash for this cowl.

    ReplyDelete
  44. I think I have some Dream in Color that would work! The pattern is excellent and looks great for fall!

  49. I hate to confess how many skeins of sock yarn I have in my stash that might work for this (bet I'm not alone in that). Your cashmere comment made me think of a skein of Cephalopod Bugga in VW Bug, a lovely shade of green.

    ReplyDelete
  50. What a lovely pattern and yarn! I have tons of sock/fingering weight to make this for gifts at Christmastime. And I love Ann Budd too!

  54. What a cool pattern! I'd love to win the giveaway. I have a few skeins of Fleece Artist merino 2/6 that would look great in this pattern, and also a skein of Knit Picks stroll that could work.

  55. Beautiful!!! I would love to try it with Everlast Sock, too :)

    ReplyDelete
  56. I have loads of yarn in my stash for this - red Alisha Goes Around Bison Tracks, some DIC Smooshy in Purple Rain, Numma Numma Doppio, oh the options are many. I loved the first Scarf Style book so much - how exciting to be part of #2. I can't wait to get my hands on one (through this contest or not!)

    ReplyDelete
  57. I have some Schaeffer Yarns Anne that would make up beautifully into this cowl/scarf. I've been holding onto it for something special and this would be perfect.

  64. I am always cold, even in the summer and wear cowls, shawls and wraps all the time. I would knit this out of Tosh Merino Light for the winter and perhaps some Claudia Handpainted lined for the summer. Oh, and I have some Ella Rae Lace Merino, that would make a lovely drapey cowl.....or some Misti Alpaca Handpainted fingering weight. I could go on and on, but will stop there.....

  68. I don't like vowels as a rule, but I love this one! I think of the yarn in my stack, one of my MadTosh skeins would be lovely - either the pashmina for a softer effect or the TML for a drapier effect.

  70. Looks like a lovely way to get Christmas out of the way. Have some lovely Skien yarn that would look great and is so soft on the skin. Also have a bunch of Smooshy with Cashmere in my stash.

    ReplyDelete
  71. I've got some great DIC smooshy with cashmere as well as a few beautiful skeins of tosh sock and MANY skeins of hazel knits piquant lite and dk lively that would work beautifully. Can't wait to get a copy of this book.

    ReplyDelete
  72. I love your patterns and have several purchased and in the queue and this one looks like another winner. I also happen to have some yarn with cashmere now I just need to win this book so I can have the two meet each other.

  73. That is an amazing design. This would be a perfect xmas present for my daughter. I have some cashmere in my stash that has been waiting for the perfect design. I think this is it.

  75. Thanks for the chance to win something, first of all. Second, this is beautiful and I love the challenge of knitting something like this as it would be new to me. And third, I honestly don't have any sock yarn in my stash worthy of this project, but I am on a spinning kick right now and have a few rovings that would look great for this project, colorwise!! And assuming I spin enough yardage at the correct weight! ;)

  76. Love the design and have never knitted a fauxbius (or a moebius even!). I am currently spinning some fibre that I hope will be my first ever fingering weight and it would be perfect for this. The grey Smooshy would make a perfect gift, once knitted, for a g/f who would be able to wear the colour much better than I would.

  79. ooh, pick me! Pick me! I've been eyeing Scarf Style 2, and I've never actually knit with Dream in Colour Smooshy before (can you believe it?!), AND I love grey. So this is about all-round perfect, in my eyes! Ravelry id: knittedblissJC.

    P.S- your cowl is gorgeous, it looks so lovely around your shoulders like that. I love cowls that also work as caplets.

  82. Wow, great that you have this giveaway - I was about to buy the book already mostly because of your Duplex!
    I would knit it in Wollmeise "Flaschenpost" a very nice, cool green with a blue undertone (and I have that in stash from the Wollmeise-lovers Easter swap).
    And again with that bridge in the background and lovely Caitlin modeling it - perfect environment to compliment your great new design!
    Would love to win the book!

  84. I love grey tabby by DIC. It makes me think of a gray day that is perfect for wearing my favorite hand knits to scare away the chill and dampness. I have a skein of Tempted Hand Painted Glam Girl, a sparkly skein of sock yarn that would be perfect for this project. It has varying shades of blue with hints of purple. I would love both the skein and/or the book.
    Thanks for sharing!
