We are so excited to bring back our annual dyeing competition! It’s super simple, and you’ll have a chance to win up to $500 at Knomad.

Knomad invites you to dye a masterpiece on any of our 19 inspiring bases, post it on your Instagram with the hashtags #KnomadMarchMayhem2022, #knomadyarn, and tag us @knomad_yarn and be entered to win up to a $500 shopping spree at Knomad.

Last year was so much fun, and you really brought your best. We can’t wait to see what this year brings, and at the end of the month, there will be two winners! One that you and your friends will decide by voting on Instagram, and one randomly selected winner. Even if you’re eliminated from the brackets, you still have a chance to win!



  1. Dye a skein of knomad yarn – get creative! Natural dyes, acid dyes, any alternative dye matters and processes, speckles, kettle-dyed, self-striping, you name it. While there is only one entry per individual, you can have a few skeins of the same colorway in the photo OR a fade! If you have multiple posts, we will reach out to confirm which is your “final entry”.
  2. Take a picture highlighting your skein’s beauty + post it to your Instagram with the hashtag #KnomadMarchMayhem2022, #knomadyarn, and tag us @knomad_yarn. Make sure you’re following Knomad on Instagram to be eligible!
  3. There will be two winners:

             -One selected through a random name picker ($250 Knomad store credit)

           -One voted on with bracket voting by the Knomad Instagram community. ($500 Knomad store credit)

  1. Voting will take place on Knomad’s Instagram between April 3rd and 11th. This is when you, your friends, and the Knomad community get to vote and choose our winners! Knomad staff will choose the top 4 and then the community will vote from there. There will be a few rounds of voting- two preliminary stages, and one final – all ultimately chosen by the Knomad community.
  2. Final winners will be announced for all categories on or by April 12th. 


We are SO excited to see the beauty you will create with our bases. If you have any questions about the competition, please leave a comment. We’re sure to have left something out, and if you’re wondering – somebody else will be too! Be sure to read our terms & conditions page for all the fine print!

    I’m so excited to enter this year!! I was curious though, are we allowed to enter multiple skeins for multiple entries? Or can we only submit once?

    • Knomad Yarn says:

      Hi Meg, one entry – but your entry can be several skeins of the same colorway for example! A fade is also fine 🙂
