Crossword Puzzle Knitting Competition

We at the Clue Detective Puzzle Agency have teamed up with Denise Sutherland at Sutherland Studios (a fellow Australian puzzle writer and the designer of this great pattern) to bring you a brand new crossword puzzle knitting competition. Who would have thought knitting and crossword puzzling could go together with such effortless synergy!

To enter, knit your own 1 Across beanie and send us a photo of the finished creation. The three most creative or funny photos of 1 Across beanies will be the winners.

The knitting pattern is available at on the Knitty website, and it is free. If you like you can add letters into the grid with letter beads or embroidery.

Crossword puzzles are traditionally black and white, but the colour choice is up to you.  You may decide to knit it in your favourite sporting team’s colours!

A unique gift idea for a friend who enjoys solving crossword puzzles — especially in the winter.

All entries should be sent to, and the competition’s closing date is midnight 14 October 2013 AEST.  Should you have any queries about the competition, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

We will select three winners:

1st Prize:  Clue Detective Puzzle Agency Individual Annual Membership.

2nd Prize: Signed Copy of “Solving Cryptic Crosswords For Dummies” by Denise Sutherland

3rd Prize: Signed Copy of “Crack the Codeword 1 : 48 Brainteasing Puzzles To Improve Your Logic and Increase Your Word Power” by Catherine Eagleson

We look forward to seeing your knitted creations!
