ULTIMATE CROCHET CONTEST -- Round 2 WINNERS ANNOUNCEMENT!!!

3년 전

What a fabulous array of projects! Both @foxyspirit and I were completely blown away by the entries and, as you can imagine, it was incredibly difficult to choose a winner. You all look like winners to us. We wish we could give everyone the prize money! Thank you all so much for entering.

As you will see, you won't envy us having to make choices like this. Eek!

So, without further ado, here are the decisions...

The winner is...

a quirky little fella called Snow King.

He was created by @hglucky13. As you can see from the original post, Hglucky13 uploaded Snow King's backstory in a very entertaining, engaging and humorous way. The pictures were charming and gave the feel of a real crafter at work.

Also, I think it's easy to grow fond of projects that fall within our grasp. I'm pretty sure I'll be inspired to make something along these lines. He's a beaut! Here's hoping @hglucky13 will share more crochet work and let us all in on the process. We think it's a crochet triumph!

Well done. You'll be receiving 2SBD in your wallet shortly :D


Now for the 2 Runners-up. In no particular order...

@jurich60 created a range of colourful doilies/mandalas. She gave them lovely names such as 'Rosy Cob Web', 'Gummy Plum', 'A Ring of Roses' and 'Vibes' which we thought was a nice touch.

On top of this, jurich60 shared the pattern here so that we can all have a go too. We are really impressed by this sharing so it was a crucial nudge that got her onto the podium.

Well done. You'll be receiving 1SBD in your wallet shortly :D


@carolinacardoza made our hearts melt with the Snow White Princess outfit. Ok, firstly we have to mention the adorable princess wearing the outfit. I think we all had a cuteness overload. Awwwwww.

But then we move onto the skills. Carolina crafted this without a pattern! She took measurements and worked out, in her head, how to create this breath-taking masterpiece. And she made the shoes and headband accessories to match! We absolutely love it!

Well done. You'll be receiving 1SBD in your wallet shortly :D


A few people missed out on being considered in the top spot because they'd forgotten to post their link in the original ULTIMATE CROCHET CONTEST comments section. However, we found them using the #ultimatecrochet tag so we think they deserve a cut of the prize fund too. Seriously beautiful and impressive skills! Thank you so much for taking part.

As stated 1/2 the SBD payout of this post will be divided between the following competitors:

@carovargasv, @sarimanok; @thriftymum; @carey-page; @vliet

It wasn't much so we've rounded it up to 0.2 SBD each.

...a great opportunity to showcase your work, make new friends and win SBD prizes. Good luck!

A MASSIVE THANK YOU to @fiberartists for contributing towards the Prize Fund. Her generosity helped fatten the purse considerably and we're really grateful to her for this.

We'd also like to recommend #needleworkmonday for crafters looking to meet more friends to share our love of crochet and other needle arts.

See you soon and Happy Crocheting!

That little princess I just want to hug and squeeze!!!!! Shes so beautiful and with her quirky smile :p Love it!
So many amazing pieces of art. I am impressed with what everyone has done and achieved.

It's been a wacky week for me which has left me wondering if I have thanked @fiberartists for her contributions. If I have not, I solely apologize and I thank you from the bottom of my heart!

Yay! Thank you so much! My crocheting slowed way down after going back to work following maternity leave, but I’m still working on things. Taking lots of process pictures of his blonde companion “Dragon Queen.”

I loved looking at everyone’s work and look forward to seeing the next contest entries. Thanks again!!
