A few months ago I responded to the call of the famous magazine Vogue Knitting and took part in the international competition «The Warmth of Mohair Blanket Design Competition", organized by the magazine and sponsored by the organization «Mohair South Africa", for the desinging of a knitted or crocheted blanket, using yarn with at least 25% mohair content in it's composition.
The magazine's staff selected 10 projects as finalists from all entries, which were exposed two weeks ago during the big event VogueKnitting LIVE Passadena, where the final review of the entries was made three projects were awarded by impartial industry experts. Projects were judged on the conception, the uniqueness of the project and adequacy of the technical implementation.
Drawing inspiration from the hottest decor trends of the next season, which have ethnic influences, I created a design with a pattern reminiscent of Moroccan tiles, but choosing more sophisticated color combinations.
I'm incredibly excited because my design won the second prize of the competition, which is the 1st Runner Up and People's Choice and my pattern will be published in the festive issue of Vogue Knitting magazine. :)
