We know there are a lot of talented designers lurking in the Knitting Daily
membership, so we decided to launch a contest to lure you out of hiding! We want to feature your patterns on Knitting Daily
We thought it would be fun to share new designs with our members, by our members. And because we love you, we decided the Valentines season was the perfect time to share the joy.
There will be three winners, and three fabulous prizes. We're going to give away all sorts of goodies to make up three wonderful prize packs.
Are you ready to become a published designer? Here's the scoop on what to do (aka the contest rules):
1. Gather what you need for the submission, this includes:
• The full pattern instructions, or if it's already posted on another site, the link to where the project can be accessed for free.
• A picture of the project, either completed or in progress.
• Answers to the following four questions to include with your pattern submission. Answer with at least a sentence or two so we can really appreciate your inspiring story and hard work:
- What was the inspiration for your submitted pattern?
- Was the design process smooth or did you run into any struggles?
- What was the most valuable lesson you learned along the way?
- What materials are required to complete this pattern? (aka put your materials list here)
2. Submit your entry. Do this by going to the Share the Love—Knitting Design Contest gallery, clicking the upload button, and adding your submission materials (including pattern/link, picture, and answers). You'll need to be logged into your Knitting Daily account to see the upload button.
Be sure you check out the official rules and regulations regarding this contest. Access the gallery here to see what other knitters have submitted and let the fun begin!
That's it! Contest starts February 1, 2014, and ends March 1, 2014 at 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time. When the contest has ended, our Interweave panel of judges will select the three winners and announce them on the Knitting Daily blog.
We'll feature new entries on the Knitting Daily Facebook Page, so check back often and be sure to get your entry started.
*Eligibility: Due to the variety of rules regulating contests worldwide, we can only select winners from entrants that are U.S. residents (excluding Puerto Rico), 18 years old or older at the time of entry; and Canadian residents (excluding Quebec). We'd still love for you to share your designs no matter where you live, and who knows, it could end up being featured on Knitting Daily.
