Hat Giveaway

[ENDED] Follow/Subscribe for a Chance to Win a Handmade Crochet Hat Made From Designer Yarn


A winner has been selected in our handmade crochet hat giveaway!

Thanks to everyone who entered! We received 93 entries including new follows on 5 social media platforms, a few Facebook shares, and subscriptions to our weekly newsletter. The winner was an email subscriber and has been notified via the email they signed up with. Subscribers: check your inboxes. It might be you!

Stay tuned for another exciting giveaway, to be announced this month!

Remember that Slightly Slouchy Crochet Hat I made last month? Well I’m in the gift-making DIY mood, and STG needs more readers. Since I’ve got a crochet hook and a bunch of fancy designer yarn, and you’ve got friends (I’m assuming) that might want to join our community (or at least win a hat), I figured we could make a little trade…

Read on to find out how to win one of these hats!

The Hat

Should you be a lucky winner, your hat will be handmade from Isaac Mizrahi Craft Premier yarn in festive black or white with gold highlights (black is shown; color selection depends on availability).  Perfect for snazzing up your holiday outfit. One size fits most.

How to Enter

Heads up! This contest has ended, but you’re still welcome to read about the contest.


Subscribe to our newsletter and/or follow us on social media for entries to win a Slightly Slouchy Crochet Hat, handmade by yours truly. Share for more entries. Contest ends at the end of this month (November 2014).

more overall entries = exponentially more hats given away = more happy readers


WHO This contest is open to those residing in the U.S., Canada, and Mexico only. Winners in other countries will be given a virtual high five (or some other equally fun prize I haven’t thought of yet). WHEN From Monday, November 17 through Sunday, November 30, 2014 WHAT Join our community and receive entries in our contest by (1) subscribing to our weekly newsletter* (2) liking our Facebook page (3) following us on Twitter (4) following us on Instagram (5) following us on Pinterest AND/OR (6) adding us to your circles on Google+. If you join our community via one account on each platform, that gets you 7 chances to win! *Newsletter subscription gets you 2 entries. WHAT ELSE Receive up to 2 MORE entries by SHARING our giveaway on Facebook or re-tweeting on Twitter. Please use only Facebook and Twitter giveaway messages posted by STG for sharing (otherwise we won’t be able to give you credit). WHY SHARE? Besides the 2 extra entries, for every 100 followers we get, we’ll DOUBLE the number of hats we give away. That’s 1 hat for up to 99 new subscriptions/follows, 2 hats for 100-199, 4 hats for 200-299, and on and on…

You really have no reason not to share, since sharing only increases your odds of winning. Bump up that number faster and max out your entries by following us on all social media listed above!

ODDS At a minimum, 1 in 100 entries wins. That’s not people. That’s entries. So if 14 people max out their entries at 7 each, it’s more like 1 in 14 wins. And once we hit 200, your odds double. It only gets better from there… Oh, and if I see someone re-sharing or re-tweeting more than what’s required for the extra 2 contest entries, I may just be inclined to make a hat especially for you, just for being so awesome. HOW WE WILL CHOOSE THE WINNERS Lists of email subscribers and social media followers and sharers from each applicable platform will be compiled into a master spreadsheet, and each entry will be assigned a number. The total number of new follows and subscriptions will be added to determine the number of hats to be made and given away. A simple random number generator will be used to select the appropriate number of winners. NOTIFICATION Winners will be contacted via the platform of their winning entry no later than December 7, 2014 and must respond within one week of notification to claim their prize. Winners: Please allow me a reasonable amount of time to make and ship your hat. I can sanely produce one hat per day. IMPORTANT You may only win once! If it’s not blatantly obvious to us that we’ve selected multiple winning entries belonging to the same person, please be honest when I contact you so that someone else can be a winner, too!


I think I’ve covered everything, but if a question comes up about this contest that isn’t already answered, I will post it here!
