The Indie Designer Gift-A-Long is a two month event put together by some of the amazing designers who sell their patterns on Ravelry. From November 13th to 21st, 293 different designers are offering a 25% discount on a selection of their knitting and crochet patterns. Once you purchase the pattern, you can join in the fun of the two-month-long knit and/or crochet-a-longs. Official cast-on day was November 13th, and knitting will continue until midnight on New Year's Eve (please note that all times mentioned on the group page are EST). To take part in the KALs or CALs, simply post to the relevant discussion forums on the group page - there are different forums for each type of pattern (cowls, sweaters, hats, toys, etc), so make sure you choose the right one(s) for your project(s). Remember to check in on the forums often - there are lots of games to play and prizes to be won!
For more information about this Gift-A-Long, please check out their Ravelry Group Page. To get the 25% discount on the patterns, you will need to enter a special code at checkout - that code is listed on the group page. As with most Ravelry groups, you do need to be a Ravelry member to access the group and its forums (and to buy the patterns), but trust me, this is totally worth it! :)
The pattern sale ends this Friday at 9pm Vancouver time, so get shopping - and then hurry up and cast on already! ;)
