Knitter of the Year 2018 – The Shortlist
The Shortlist Revealed
Our first round of nominations has come to a close and voting for your favourites is open now!
Three years ago we launched the Knitter of the Year competition on our hunt to find the nation’s greatest knitters. There is so much to knitting and we want to celebrate it all – from designing to charity knitting and everything in between! You can read more about this year’s categories here. Voting is now open for you to choose your winners from our shortlist or to nominate your own choices.
The Grand Prize
Five winners from each category will get to visit the West Yorkshire Spinners headquarters on 14th March 2019. West Yorkshire Spinners is one of the few remaining hand-knitting brands in the UK that still develops and manufacters yarn in house. Winners will get exclusive, behind-the-scenes access to see how the yarn spinning and production process takes place. You’ll also get to meet the team behind the fantastic range of WYS yarn. It’s a prize money just can’t buy!
How to vote
Simply select your choice from our shortlist below or enter the name of your nomination for each category. Voting will close at midnight on the 31st December 2018 after which time the votes will be counted. The five winners with the highest number of votes in each category will be announced in Knit Now 98.
