Boutique Swanky Giveaway!

Hello to all crocheters and yarn lovers! Recently I participated in a Design Wars mini-challenge sponsored by Red Heart Yarns. For this challenge we worked with one of their newest yarns, Boutique Swanky!

The yarn was lovely to design with and very unique because of the sequins. I found it worked very well with a larger hook (I used a K hook!) and an openwork pattern. Here is what I created, using 3 skeins of sterling. The Glamour Kaftan pattern will be coming soon from Red Heart Yarns.

I now have 4 skeins of the yarn to giveaway! Please comment on this post to be entered to win. I will select 2 winners and each will receive 2 skeins of this lovely yarn. Winners will be notified via e-mail. Thanks for entering the giveaway and be sure to follow all the upcoming Design Wars challenges!
