Summer LYS KCAL Rules
- KCAL runs from Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day weekend
- Your FO (finished object) must be made from the FDF yarn that you purchased at River Colors Studio during this time period (Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day weekend)
- To enter for the giveaway prizes, you must bring in your FO to the same store you made your FDF purchase from (River Colors Studio in this case).
- Your project must be finished in order to enter to win the gift basket prize.
- You can participate in the KCAL without entering into the giveaway.
- You may enter up to 3 times, meaning you may bring in 3 different FDF FOs to River Colors Studio, which will count as 3 separate entries.
- River Colors Studio will choose one winner for the FDF essentials prize package ($75 value).
- The Montana Mountain Retreat guest spot will be chosen from the pool of yarn shop winners as the grand prize, by The Farmer’s Daughter Fibers. The spot at the retreat is completely inclusive with the exception of travel costs OR you can choose a $500 gift card from The Farmer’s Daughter Fibers online shop.
Frequently Asked Questions
For the complete list of FAQ, please visit the FDF website.
What pattern is associated with the KCAL?
There is not a specific pattern associated with the KCAL, any FO using FDF yarn purchased at River Colors Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day weekend is considered an entry. If you're looking for a pattern, might we suggest:
- Tecumseh by Caitlin Hunter
- Magical Thinking by Casapinka
- Jodi by Joji Locatelli
- The Girl from the Grocery Store by Joji Locatelli
- A Girl's Best Friend by Isabell Kraemer
Do we need to also enter to win on social media?
Nope! River Colors Studio will handle your submission in person when you bring in your FO into the studio before Labor Day. But if you want to share what you are up to and see what everyone else is doing, hashtag your projects #LYS_FDFSummerKCal.

My project has FDF yarn but also some other brands of yarn, is that ok?
