Yarn Stories has announced the finalists in its design competition held in conjunction with the Knitting and Crochet Guild.
Debbie Abrahams, Jane Crowfoot and Angharad Thomas from the Knitting and Crochet Guild, together with the team at Yarn Stories formed a panel to judge all the amazing squares sent in as part of the competition.
“We received so many beautiful entries inspired by the Guild’s archive from very talented knitters and crocheters. The standard was exceptionally high and the judges had a tough job to select just 10 finalists,” explains Annabelle Hill, Sales and Marketing Director at Yarn Stories.
The squares have been re-knitted in Fine Merino DK in a palette of 8 delicious colours including Duck Egg, Cream, Primrose, Fuchsia, Raspberry, Leaf, Spring Green and two new shades, Blackberry and Iced Teal. Now it’s your chance to vote for your favourite design. Yarn Stories has set up a special poll on their Facebook page, click here.
All ten finalists' squares are currently being made into a beautiful blanket to celebrate the Guild’s work. The pattern will be available in September with 50% of the income going to help the Knitting and Crochet Guild maintain their extensive Archive and Collection.
Yarn Stories want to say a huge thank you to everyone who took part.
