Britain’s Next Top Knitwear Designer – the top 10 finalists
We’ve very pleased to announce the top 10 finalists in our Britain’s Next Top Knitwear Designer competition!
We were so amazed by the fantastic knitting talent, it was a real challenge to pick the 10 best designs. The entries we saw were so diverse – from soon-to-be textiles graduates to new knitters who only picked up the needles a few months ago.
We saw new shapes we’ve never seen in knitting and classic pieces reimagined in a new way. Thank you to everyone who entered – we hope you will continue knitting and designing patterns because you’re a very talented bunch!
We recently invited our judges Debbie Bliss, Emma Kasyan, Kate Carter, Perri Lewis, Stefanie Rycraft-Jones, and our very own Edward Griffith to LoveKnitting HQ to pick the winner.
We had a great day and our judges engaged in many interesting debates, but we’re not allowed to reveal the winner just yet…! For now, take a look at our top 10 finalists (in alphabetical order below)… Drum roll please…
