Knitting.
Members may enter up to a total of three classes based on
the phase or level in which they are enrolled and one exhibit
in the Hands for Larger Service Class. Senior and
Intermediate members may also enter one exhibit in the
Innovation and County of Celebration classes. The phase
classes may be any combination of divisions but within each
division the classes must be in a single phase or level. For
phase classes and Hands for Larger Service class to qualify
for judging, a 4-H Knitting Exhibit Explanation(360-01) card
must be securely attached to the exhibit. The card requests
information about the exhibited item and skills learned in
construction. Members must mark skills on the level in
which they are enrolled. If they show skills beyond their
level, they will not receive extra consideration. For the
Innovation Class, exhibits must include the Innovation
Explanation card (998-01). Forms are available at Extension
office or on State 4-H website: http://oregon.4h.oregon-
state.edu/special-events/state-fair/cm-family.
Judging criteria for non-felted items are outlined on the 4-H
Knitting Check Sheet (360-02). Judging criteria for knitting
which has been felted are outlined in the 4-H Felting Score
Sheet (261-03). Both are available from the county
Extension office or at website above.
A pair of mittens, slippers, socks, etc., is considered one arti-
cle. The two pieces of the pair should be temporarily but
securely attached to each other. Swatches are not accept-
able as exhibits.
In addition to the 4-H exhibit tag, each garment or article
must be labeled with the member’s name, county and pro-
ject phase or level. This label should be typed or printed in
indelible pencil or ink on a piece of white fabric and sewn to
the articleor written with indelible ink on painters tape and
placed where it can do the least amount of damage.
