Project: Knit Prize Ribbons

If you’ve followed this blog for anytime, you know how much I love the Minnesota State Fair. Well, this year I’m going to love it even more because it won’t just be the Great Minnesota Get Together, it’ll be the Great Minnesota Knit Together! The fair has asked the Minnesota Knitters’ Guild along with Knitteapolis and other fiber guilds to yarnbomb part of the fairgrounds this year.

This is what we will be covering with knitting!

That is a 6-foot horse topiary. 6-foot!

We thought it would be fun to cover it with knit state fair themed items, so I have been working on patterns for a few things. The first thing we’ll need, of course, is prize ribbons. It took me a lot of trail and error to finally get a pattern that I liked and actually had the look of the rosettes they give out at the fair. Getting the ruffle right was the tough part.

I finally figured our the best way to do it was to make the ruffle separate and sew it to the center. I think these turned out so fun. They take a little more sewing together than I had hoped, but the knitting itself is really easy and quick.

This is a bit of a quirky one, but I am sharing the pattern with you all anyway. Who knows when you’ll need a knit prize ribbon?!

I have a lot of these babies to knit up before August!

    • One of the UK wool shows always has a collaborative project – the first year people sent in triangles for bunting, then mandalas, then… sheep, I think? The impact comes from having a large quantity of the items and it really does make the space come alive. You can see some of the pictures here: http://yarndale.co.uk/who-should-attend/
