Knitted Pattern Contest

Knitted Pattern Contest

IAGARB Pattern & Promotions Committee Presents:

2010 Knitted Pattern Contest

You are invited to compete in the IAGARB 2010 Patterns Contest.  This contest is for unique patterns that highlight the qualities of these two yarns:

Angora Blizzard, an 85% Angora, 15% Merino 2 ply yarn

and  Angora Frost, a 50% Angora, 30% Nylon, & 20% Super Wash Merino 3ply yarn.

This yarn comes to you from independent farms within the IAGARB wool cooperative; where the exceptionally productive German Angora rabbit is raised with a high standard of care; in a humane environment. Their fiber is gently harvested and graded twice under strict qualifications.  Uniformity is the key to this non-shedding, drapey yarn.  You will be inspired by its creamy handle as you knit your one of a kind article.

1.     The Prizes:   $150 – For best use of 3 skeins of either Blizzard or Frost yarn

$100 – For best use of 2 skeins of either Blizzard or Frost yarn                                           $50 – For best use of 1 skein of either Blizzard of Frost yarn

2.     Patterns will be evaluated on their success in showcasing our beautiful IAGARB angora yarns.

3.     All patterns must be original creations of the contestant.
