DesignAlong: The Winner!

It's been an incredible month or two of watching budding designers contribute ideas, support and entries for the Designalong. I know that all 3 of the judges found the task of picking just 5 to offer for the final public vote quite daunting!  

We have a winner!

Sarah, located in Canada was a regular contributor to the Designalong chatty thread and contributed 2 possible designs across the competition. The winner is this plaid beauty:

3 Colour plaid Cowl by PrairiePoppin 

3 Colour plaid Cowl by PrairiePoppin 

Sarah impressed the judges with not only her final design but also her carefully thought out colour inspirations, design elements and the clear way she communicated those when she entered. 

We can't wait to chat to Sarah and she's agreed to let me follow her along on her journey to bring this cowl to the point of publishing so stay tuned!


A massive thank you to the Designalong judge and sponsor Kate Atherley, judge and yarn provider Jeni of Fyberspates and every single person who entered, chatted and turned up to vote. It's been such an inspirational start to 2015! 

I will continue to share posts for new knit designers, yarn dyers and creative business owners from time to time (stay tuned for something amazing next week in fact). I also liked the suggestion of leaving the Designalong chatty thread open for further support and have dutifully added useful bits I've found around the internet. 

More soon!
