Introducing the Francis House Virtual Knit Off!

If you have been waiting for something crafty and creative to do, Francis House has the perfect activity for you!

With the re-opening of the shops, you can now stock up on your craft supplies and with your knitting needles at the ready take part in our Virtual Knit Off competition.

Show off your greatest knitted creation to be in with a chance to win

Whether its colourful combinations or character knits, we want your pictures of your proudest piece of knitting or crocheting and you could win a certificate and a £25 voucher kindly donated by Hobbycraft in Altrincham.

When the Knit Off opens on the 1st August you’ll have until 30th September to submit your entry!

It costs £3 to enter a photograph of your knitted / crocheted item and there are four categories to choose from:

  • Cutest soft toy
  • Colourful story character
  • Adorable baby item
  • Most original design

Our judging panel will then draw up a shortlist of entries for each of the four categories.

Shortlisted entries will then be displayed on our website from 5th – 15th October and open for voting by the public. If you are lucky enough to be shortlisted make sure you tell your family and friends to vote for you!

Prizes to be won

The winner in each category with the most votes will win a £25 Hobbycraft voucher.

Plus, the item with the most votes overall will win an additional £30 Hobbycraft voucher!

(See our Terms and Conditions of Entry).
