#MiniSweaterChallenge starts Monday!

Four weeks, four mini sweaters… who could ask for a cuter knitting challenge?! I’m hosting my third annual mini sweater challenge and it begins Monday, August 5th.

How to join? Simply subscribe to and each Monday a new PDF mini sweater pattern will appear in your email inbox.

How long is the challenge? Four weeks. You will receive a total of four mini sweater patterns, each featuring a different sweater construction on four consecutive Mondays beginning August 5th.

Are there prizes? Yes! Each week I will award TWO yarn prizes. One in my Facebook group, WayfaringYarns Designs, and one on Instagram. The fourth week I will be awarding TWO grand prizes of a sweater’s worth of yarn — one grand prize awarded in the Facebook group and one on Instagram.

How do I enter for the prize draws? For the Facebook group, simply post a photo of your finished mini sweater for that week. For Instagram, post a photo of your finished weekly mini sweater with the hashtag #mnisweaterchallenge and tag SweaterSistersDesigns.
To be eligible for the grand prize you must post one photo of all four completed mini sweaters.

Can I enter in the Facebook group as well as Instagram? Yes! Your name will be put in the draw for both groups if you are posting in both places.

I will ship prizes all over the world. Everyone is eligible to play and win. Watch for my weekly live videos on Mondays in the WayfaringYarns Designs Facebook Group and in SweaterSistersDesigns Instagram stories.

Materials needed per mini sweater:
-Between 30 and 36 grams of any size yarn (I use DK weight with these sweaters)
-DPNs or needles for your preferred method of knitting small circumferences in the round in the size recommended for your choice of yarn.
-Four stitch markers
-Small amount of waste yarn
