What a cool idea! Knit Cap Cup is a venue for aspiring fashion designers that allows users to submit designs for knit caps. Here’s how it works:

1. Register
2. Submit your design (deadline is 8/31)
3. Every entry is manufactured into a cap, and the designer receives a sample (about $40)
4. Every cap then goes on sale between October ~ February
5. The designer receives half of the profits (about $20 per sale)

I’m not sure if you have to have an address in Japan, but I’d be happy to help if anyone wants to try! (it’s all in Japanese)
