Gag Month // July Competition

Gag Month // July Competition

We’re making kitsch cool for the month of July.

Knit, crochet or craft something super-kitsch, over-the-top and absolutely outrageous using any of our variegated yarns (Elle or Charity)! We’re talking over-the-top tea cosies, mixed and matched garments/accessories, knitted shorts, bodysuits or even the classic bold and colourful toilet roll holders. Anything that makes you cringe as you create it is exactly what we’re looking for. Your creation must be made with 100% variegated yarns (required).

Dare to enter the most kitsch, colourful creation and you could stand a chance to win R5000 in cash!

To enter, submit a maximum of two photos per entry. For this competition we want the image to be styled. If you’ve created the funkiest toilet roll holder anyone has ever seen, we want to see it as it would be used. The same counts for those crochet shorts or knitted tea cosies. Make sure to show us the ball bands of the yarn you used with your item in the photo (required). Separate images of the ball bands will not be counted as valid.

Send the photos to along with your name and contact details. Take some time to read the terms and conditions below carefully to make sure your entry is valid.

Entries are open from 27 June 2022 until midnight, 24 July 2022. The judging team at Saprotex International will go through all the valid entries and select the top entries based on the excellence and presentation of the final product. Those finalists’ items will be uploaded to the Elle Yarns Facebook Page and the public will get to vote for the winner over the course of 5 days.

What are you waiting for? Time for an outing to your local yarn store to get hold of our Elle or Charity variegated yarns, so you can also stand a chance to win a very exciting R 5 000 cash prize!
