A maximum of four (4) entries per entrant will be accepted. Only hand-knit garments will be accepted. Only designs by individuals will be accepted. Crochet and embellishment may be added. We value creativity.
For all submitted entries, at least 75% of the garment must be knit in Tahki Donegal Tweed (either weight of the yarn is acceptable for this contest), and the remaining portion of the garment must be in Tahki yarn. When designing your garment, please keep ALL ball bands of all yarns used, as finalists will be required to submit ALL ball bands with the garment.
