Toft Presents a Stash-Busting Design Competition

toft design competitionOur friends at the British yarn company Toft Alpaca (remember you have until the end of the month to enter to win a jumper kit if you’re a British knitter!) are holding a contest to see who comes up with the best idea for using a little bit of yarn.

Knitters may design whatever they like so long as their project falls within the project limitations, which are:

Fine: 20g
Dk weight: 30g
Aran: 40g
Chunky: 60g

Originality is key, so think outside the yarn box! Photographs of entries must be emailed to with the subject line “Design Competition” by Sept. 30. Ten finalists will be chosen, and the winner will get yarn valued up to £150 (the other finalists will get £50 of yarn each).

If you enter, I’d love to hear what you make!
