Over on Ravelry there’s a fun celebration of gift knitting at it’s finest. Hundreds of indie designers from all over the world are participating by offering 25% off of a selection of their patterns beginning at 5 p.m. (PST) November 19th until 9 p.m. November 27th. There are over 5000 discounted patterns!
I’m joining in the fun this year with 20 patterns of my own. I’ve chosen a nice selection of quicker projects, perfect for gift knitting. I also chose a couple of more involved projects if you’re planning on knitting for that special someone who is particularly knitworthy.
You can read all about the accompanying knit-a-longs (KAL), giveaways and rules in the Indie Design Gift-A-Long Group on Ravelry. In addition to the discounted patterns that help kick things off (and support your hard-working indie designers), there will be all sorts of games and contests and there are several appropriately themed KALs from which to choose. The KALs run until December 31st. And ALL of the indie designers’ patterns (not just the discounted ones) are eligible for participation.
