The Macknit Garment Challenge
Our challenge is to see how many different variations our members come up with from the one pattern, so let your creativity run free!
There is just one rule:
Use the pattern as printed, use the stitches and rows given.
The pattern has been designed so all can join in, including new knitters. It can be knitted on any machine and only requires main bed.
Use any yarn, it will just mean the garment changes size but it will stay in proportion.
Use any stitch pattern but avoid tuck and slip as it will change the proportion.
Use any band/trim including rib.
Add your choice, pockets, collar, single motif, beads, anything.
Bring your garment/s to the August General Macknit Meeting at Burwood RSL on Saturday 26th August 2017 10am. Lucky Prize will be drawn at the meeting on 27th August. To be in the draw you need to bring your garment/s to the meeting on 26th August. For our members outside Sydney, you can join in by emailing a photo, your name and phone number to Secretary at firstname.lastname@example.org Everyone will get one ticket for each garment.
Prize is a $50 voucher at Bendigo Woollen Mills.
It will be interesting to see how the one pattern is interpreted and we should get some great photos for the September newsletter.
