Love it or hate it, Monday 27th June is the start of Wimbledon. Fun fact, Wimbledon also celebrates 100 years of Centre Court this year.
Usually we go a bit quiet at this time as many of you hide away to watch it. This year we thought we would set you a challenge that you can start whilst watching the matches on T.V or even live at Wimbledon!
There are not many rules and there is a prize to be won!1: We will release a crochet square pattern and a knitted square pattern on our blog on the website each day throughout Wimbledon.
2: You can make your squares in any weight yarn and make as many squares as you like, for example you might make one of each square or pick 3 squares and make lots of those.
4: You can use any hook or needle size you like and as few or as many colours as you like.
3: The challenge is to see what you make with your squares e.g cushion, blanket, garment, toilet seat cover. Be creative!
4: At the end of the challenge email or message us photos of your finished item or bring in to the shops for photos.
5: Photos will be shared on our social media and website and the public will vote on their favourite. A prize will be given for the winner and runner up.
