2018 Challenge Designs


The Manitoba Fibre Festival is delighted to share that nine creative designers have shared their original designs inspired by the 2018 Challenge Mood Board.  There is something for everyone in this collection of beautiful accessories that includes mittens, cowls, shawls, hat, and socks.  The designs feature yarns and fibres sourced and/or dyed locally.  You’ll find them all in this collection on Ravelry.  <– Check them out!

From June 1-7, all of the patterns will be available at a 20% discount using the code Challenge20 .  Grab one or more and cast on for the MAL.  Don’t forget to use our hashtag of #MBFF2018challenge

All designs are available for download through Ravelry as individual patterns and have been tech edited.  Some will also be available as kits at Blue Hills Fibre Festival (in Carberry, MB on June 9) and at the Manitoba Fibre Festival.

Thank you to our wonderful local designers for accepting the challenge: Alex, ash, Heather, Johanna, Kaeleigh, Laura, Sarah, Sigrid, and Susie.  Thank you Mandyz for organizing the collection.

Thank you also to the yarn and fibre folk who dyed, created, and/or produced the yarns and fibres that helped to inspire each design. You’ll find them all at the Manitoba Fibre Festival – check out the Vendor’s List for 2018.
