What Is the Pigskin Party?


The Pigskin Party is a knit, crochet, weaving and spin along hosted in the Down Cellar Studio Podcast Ravelry Group that runs during the NFL football season. If you’re a returning player or a newbie, we’re excited to have you. Check out the details and links below!


How do you play?

Work on your favorite fiber crafts from September 23, 2022 until February 13, 2023. For each project you finish, you’ll score touchdowns (for every 100 yards) and field goals (for anything less than 100 yards) which earn you points. For every 100 points, you earn 1 entry towards the grand prize drawings. You can also increase your score by using products from our awesome sponsors or meeting other challenges.

This make-along is what you make it. Want to rack up the points, meet all the challenges and be entered to win in every contest? Do it. Want something laid back? A place to chat with your friends, share your projects and get some help along the way? Great! Either way- we’re the group for you.

Check out the Official Rules here (non-Ravelry link). Note- we have changed a few things so even if you’ve played each year, give them a quick read, please.
