You might recall that back in September, we launched a competition with our friends at Stylecraft to hunt for the next big crochet designer. We invited you lovely readers to get involved, send in your design ideas, and crochet something in Belissima. We are delighted to announce in issue 40 the winners of our competition!
And if you are interested in designing for the magazine, head to the bottom of this post for a link to our designer sign-up form!
Jayne Price, with her Modern Mellow Cushion, is our winner! The judges loved her eye for contemporary home design in this piece, creating a staple design that will sit beautifully in any home. Jayne has won a £100 bundle from Stylecraft, and be sure to check out issue 41 (on sale 25thApril) when we will publish the Modern Mellow Cushion pattern.
A massive well done to our two runners-up! Zoe Beeston’s Spring Blossom Infinity and Sanne de Niet’s Easy Diamond Mittens were commended by the judges for their beautiful designs, high-level of finishing, and accessible design. Both Zoe and Sanne will receive a £50 bundle of Stylecraft yarn.
We’ve been so blown away by the quality of all our shortlisted designs during this competition. Well done to Elisabeth Davis de Herraiz (Silver Linings Cowl), Karen Pimblett (Day Dreamer Shawlette), Celia Moore (Romantic Cowl) and Ruth Haydock (Plumeria Alba Blanket) for their beautiful designs! We hope everyone who has taken part is feeling inspired to take their crochet design to the next level and push themselves to publish their beautiful pieces.
