Draws (prize winners selected by random draw)

  • Guild Design: If your entry uses a pattern designed by a KWKG member (your own or someone else’s), it is eligible for this draw.
  • COVID-inspired: Did you learn a new technique while stuck at home? Make an amigurumi model of the COVID-19 virus? Explain how COVID led to you creating this item, and it will be eligible for this draw.


Within the regular and bonus categories, there will be three subcategories:

  • Beginner
    • First item of a “type” you’ve knit (e.g., first socks, first shawl)
    • First time using a new technique (e.g., first colourwork project, first lace project)
    • First time using new materials/fibre
    • First time entering an item for adjudication
  • Intermediate
    • It’s not your first time, but you aren’t an expert either
  • Expert
    • You are a professional knitter/designer/fibre artist
    • You are regularly recognized as an expert knitter
    • Your work is regularly recognized through awards

We reserve the right to move an item to another category or subcategory if we think it has been miscategorized.
