To celebrate all things crafty, the World Craft Week Team are challenging you to post a photo, or share a short crafting video, of something you’ve made on their Facebook page (see above). Tag someone or something that inspires you and your knitting (or any craft you enjoy), encouraging them to take part in the World Craft Week challenge as well. Remember to use the hashtag #worldcraftweek when you share your craft crush with them.

As a special bonus for taking part, you could win a £50 Not on the Highstreet voucher at the end of the week – there’s 10 up for grabs! They’ll announce the winners during the week following World Craft Week so make sure you keep an eye on their Facebook page.
