Crochet and Knitting Contests 2012

by Kelly

                                Pincushion Contest

Knitting Daily is having a design contest! Design a pincushion in any of their five categories (knitting, crochet, beading, needlework, or lacemaking/tatting).

Submit your design by April 16, 2012 to win a top prize of $500.00. Entries must be no larger than 4" x 4" x 4". Click here for more details. Just to give you an idea of what you're up against, here's last year's grand prize winner.


                                     Iron Craft 2012

This is a creative challenge, not a contest, but it still looks like a lot of fun. During 2012, Just Crafty Enough will pose 26 separate crafty challenges. Participants will have two weeks to prepare their entry. Visit their site to register. The first challenge will be January 4th, 2012.

Check out some of the challenges from 2011 here.
