My first ever knitting design competition – VOTE NOW!


UPDATE: Well I didn’t win, but I feel honoured to have made it to the shortlist! Thank you to everyone who voted for my design, you can check out the winners here :)


I have been very quiet on here & everywhere else and here is why… A great opportunity recently came up with the awesome knitwear company Wool & The Gang to design a clutch bag to be sold as a knit kit on their website. Having recently decided to dedicate more time to designing rather than making, I jumped on the occasion.

WATG first asked participants to knit a swatch using their new Mixtape Yarn, do a sketch and write a brief description of our design.

WATG Clutch Bag Design by Julie Picard

When I made it to the shortlist (yay!), I was then asked to knit my clutch bag and send them some pics including a ‘in action’ shot, hence the awkward photo of myself below.



The voting is now open and they will launch the winning design as a knit kit. This is a fantastic opportunity for me and, if you like my clutch bag, I’d be so grateful if you could spare a minute to vote for my design! All you have to do is click HERE and vote for JULIE (that’s me!) – you will be taken to their Facebook page to vote and it also works from mobiles.


There are some lovely designs in this list, and if my clutch bag does not win, I’ve decided that I will publish the pattern myself :)

If you’ve never heard of WATG before, check out their website!  – I discovered them thanks to friend years ago. They make modern DIY and unique, ready to wear fashion knits brand for women, men, kids and babies.
