Knitting. It’s one of those things that you’ve always wanted to try but, a) you’ve been too embarrassed to take those first few clumsy stitches and risk embarrassing yourself on public transport/ in front of your nan, and b) it just seems too damn hard.

But here's a secret - knitting is actually super, super easy. And to sweeten the deal, our pals at Cleckheaton want to make your dream beanie for you.

Using the Full of Beanies app, you can actually design your own beanie (or just play with it for hours like us).

Send your beanie design to and we'll pick one finalist a week and show off their design job on our Facebook and Instagram pages. You could even share it on your own social media channels, using the #fullofbeanies hashtag. 

At the end of the month Cleckheaton will choose ONE WINNER who will receive the following:

- Your dream beanie, which will be brought to life by Cleckheaton's expert band of knitters.

- 4 balls of wool and some knitting needles to start off your own knitting adventure.

Go to the app, design your beanie and send it to us! Winners will be announced September 8.

Check out Fashion journal's August issue to learn how to start your knitting journey.
