Do you fancy trying your hand at designing your own blanket square, which would feature in Simply Knitting and be added to our special Refuge designer blanket?
As you probably know, we've launched our Refuge 'Bears and Squares' campaign, and we'd love you to get as involved as possible! We have some fantastic prizes for one winner and two runners-up, and the winners will be invited to join us at The Knitting & Stitching Show at London’s Alexandra Palace in October.
You can use any technique or style of knitting for your blanket square design, but the finished result must measure 15cm by 15cm (6 inches by 6 inches) and be knitted in a DK yarn.
We are looking for designs that are cheerful and fun to knit – just what readers of Simply Knitting would love to make.
You can send us either a knitted square, a written pattern or a sketch of your design.
You can take a look at last year’s blanket square pattern e-book for inspiration. Why not give a donation to Refuge and download it now?
Your entries must reach us by September 12, 2012.
Please download and include the Refuge competition entry form when sending us your design (photocopies are acceptable).
The winners will be announced on September 28, 2012 and invited to join us at The Knitting & Stitching Show.
