Calling all knitters!

In association with Critter of the Week and the New Zealand Red Cross we are asking you to knit a native NZ critter for our Knit a Critter competition!

It can be knitted or crocheted. It can be shaped like the critter or a critter image on an item of clothing like a beanie or another creative idea you come up with. It's up to you!

For any wearable items, do please use pure wool.

All the entries will go to the Mangere Refugee Resettlement Centre for new refugee families.

The winner gets a prize pack from RNZ Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, including a new critter of the week t-shirt!
