World Book Day Contest: My book of yarns

Update 30 april 2015

And the winners of our Book Day Contest My Book of Yarns are Ana Isabel and Azucena. Congratulations!


In this book month we want to encourage you to create your very own version of My book of yarns. A compilation dedicated to all your past, present and future projects. What will be in it? Everything that you’ve brought together through your love of knitting and crochet: Favourite patterns, notes, tips, sketches, knitted samples, graphs, photos of the results… OK, that’s the inside sorted out. But what about the cover? Well, as this World Book Day Contest is called My book of yarns, you’ll have a good idea of what it’s all about. Get knitting and crocheting! Use Katia’s yarns to make your book cover, expressing your own personal style and send us some photos of the result.


If you are one of the two winners we’ll send you the book of your choice from the following editions: Crochet Encyclopedia, Knitting Encyclopedia (1 & 2) and Baby Collection (available in Spanish, French, German and Dutch) or these 5 magazines (available in English) from our Spring·Summer 2015 collection: Beginners 3, Baby 72, Kids 73, Woman 81 and Woman 82.

How do I take part? Create the cover of your book using Katia’s yarns combined with your own style and choice of techniques. Go for creativity!

Do you need to see some examples to help you get started?
