Inspired by the Classics // June Competition

Inspired by the Classics // June Competition

The classics are the classics for a reason. They are timeless and never go out of fashion. Be inspired by the classic knitted/crocheted look of fair isle and cable garments in the month of June and 2 lucky winners could stand a chance to win R2500 each.

To enter, knit or crochet a fair isle or cable garment, using one of the select Elle yarns. You are welcome to use any of the following yarns:

  • Classic Wool Chunky
  • Rodeo
  • Unspun
  • Fifty50 Chunky

    You can make your garment in any size you like, kids or adult sizes, knitted or crocheted. The term “garment” refers to a wearable outer item of clothing – specifically pullovers/cardigans etc. You are welcome to create additional accessories with your garment, but your garment will be the item up for judging. There will be a winner in each category: fair isle and cables. You may enter in either one of the categories, so choose your favourite and be inspired by the classics!

    We’ve selected some of our latest chunky yarns with the best winter palettes to help you get creative, so be sure to check in with your local stores about price and availability on your yarn of choice.

To enter, submit a maximum of two photos per entry. One photo should clearly show the ball band(s) of the yarn(s) you used, with the item (required). Another image can be submitted showing your item styled creatively. 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 30 May 2023 until midnight, 25 June 2023. The judging team at Saprotex International will go through all the valid entries and select the top ones based on the excellence and presentation of the final product. There will be finalists for each category: cables and fair isle. Those finalists’ items will be uploaded to the Elle Yarns Facebook Page and the public will get to vote for the winners over the course of 5 days. The finalists in each category (x2) with the most votes will each win a cash prize of R2500!

So, what are you waiting for? Get those needles and hooks out – you could be one of our next winners!
