Knitters and crocheters are welcome to enter the design contest, which calls for individually designed and hand knit or crocheted blankets no smaller than 48 inches square and no larger than 72 inches square made with yarn that is at least 25 percent mohair. Designers may submit up to four designs.
Entries (which include an entry form and three color photos) must be received by March 16, 2015. Finalists who are selected will then have to send their completed blanket and ball bands to Vogue Knitting, with the final judging happening at Vogue Knitting Live Pasadena on April 17, 2015.
The grand prize winner will receive $2,000, a VIP package at a future Vogue Knitting Live, an editorial feature and pattern publication in Vogue Knitting and coverage on the Mohair South Africa website and other media. A runner up in both knitting and crochet will receive a gift basket of yarn, their pattern in Vogue Knitting and a feature on the Mohair South Africa site, as well as a class package for a future Vogue Knitting Live.
Sounds like fun. If any of you enter I’d love to hear about it!
