About Our Group

Our Current Contest

Small FriendsOur next Contest is "Small Friends"
This month we are inspired by the Small Friend Pattern found here https://translate.google.com/translate?sl=auto&tl=en&js=y&prev=_t&hl=en&ie=UTF-8&u=http%3A%2F%2Fpuff.gyldendal.no%2Fhekling%2Fgjesteblogg-til-en-liten-venn%2F&edit-text= (this is the google-translated link) or you may also use the Monsties Pattern by EssHaych found here http://esshaych.blogspot.com/2009/08/free-pattern-monsties.html. Notice the similarities in the basic shape? I think this makes them really customizable.
You have to use at least one of these patterns in your finished submission. If you knit, it's ok to make a similar shape on your own for your submission. If you have a question about your idea, just ask in the comments! Make sure when you use a pattern to link it in your description.
Star! Remember to link any published patterns in your description!

:bulletblack:The deadline for any contest is the last day of the month.

The Group Admins judge the contests. The judge will be announced in the contest journal. If an Admin is not judging, they are allowed to participate and even win a contest. To get to know your Admins check out the "About Us" page!

:star: We do not allow normal submissions, please only submit photos of contest entries. :star:

Contest Descriptions

Creation Contest
In a pattern creation contest, you will have to create your own design based off of an idea or theme. Due to the four-week deadline, these will usually be fairly simple creations. (We may have some larger ones with an extended deadline in the future).

Customization Contest
With a Pattern Customization contest, you will be provided with a basic pattern. The real competition will be how you customize your pattern. For example, if the pattern was a basic rabbit, you could make a hat for it, or even do a crossover of a favorite character.

:? Questions? Just ask!

We :heart: our prize donors! If you can donate prizes for the winners, just note us!
