Templeton Square Contest Winners

We are thrilled to announce the winners of our Templeton Square contest! In our Spring & Summer issue, in his Stitches in Time column, Franklin Habit unearthed and updated a lovely counterpane square pattern, original published in Weldon’s Practical Knitter series.

He proposed a contest: what could our knitters do with such a square?

We had 51 entries, and the range of work was wonderful and surprising and gratifying.You can peek at all of the entries over here.

We’re thrilled to announce the winners:

Best in Show: Wrap by Asimina Saranti

Very clever
Looks even better on.

Asimini wins an original Franklin Habit illustration and 10 skeins of Cascade Sierra yarn.

Most Creative: Fairy by Amanda Heyen

2. Seated
Makes me smile.

Amanda wins a set of Addi Turbo Lace Clicks and 10 skeins of Cascade Sierra yarn.

Most Ambitious: Tire Cozy by Karen Vradelis

If that’s not showing your colors as a knitter, nothing is.

Karen wins 10 skeins of Cascade Sierra yarn.

A big thank you to our judges: Ysolda Teague, Fiona Ellis and Shannon Dunbabin.

And thanks also to those who donated the prizes: Franklin Habit, Addi/Skacel and Cascade Yarns.

    Oh my! All the entries are beautiful and creative. How hard it must’ve been to choose the winners. I’m a fan of Mary Ellen’s grey and orange slouchy hat and wristers. Would love to see her publish her pattern. My daughter would love to have a set in every color!

    Too bad there were only prizes for 3 winners–there were at least a dozen more that deserved the spotlight!

    What a wonderful group of imaginative patterns. I would love to see the patterns made available!
