Close Up Flash Challenge

What is the Makers’ Closeup Flash Challenge?

It’s a surprise flash challenge that gives you a chance to win yarn!


How does it work?

We will randomly post a challenge on Instagram that shows a close-up image of one of our yarns. To win, you must like the photo and be the first valid entrant to correctly identify the yarn brand name and colorway. Submit your answer by following the link in our bio that leads to the submission form. The first valid entrant to submit the correct answer will win a skein/ball/hank of the yarn featured in the photo.


What if I don’t know which yarn it is?

The photos we use are close-ups of images directly from our website. It may take a little searching to find the answer. 


I didn’t see your post until hours later, how can I make sure I see the challenge photo as soon as it’s posted?

To get a notification as soon as we post a photo on Instagram turn on post notifications. The sooner you see the challenge post, the better chance you have at being the first to answer correctly
