The Indie Design Gift-a-long (GAL) started on Tuesday and I’m pleased to be participating for the first time as both a knitter AND designer.
So, what is the Indie Design GAL?
It’s a knit/crochet-a-long that happens leading up to the holidays that focuses on gift knitting from patterns by independent designers. The best part? All participating designers offer 25% off a selection of their patterns for the first week! Just use coupon code giftalong2016 when purchasing any eligible designs. The sale is on now and runs through November 30th 11:59:59 EST. There are THOUSANDS of patterns from HUNDREDS of indie designers included in this incredible sale.
The fun doesn’t stop when the sale ends, though. You can participate in the GAL on Ravelry for a chance to win tons of great prizes (and a guaranteed good time). Join the group here.
I love supporting other indies and I’ve already purchased one of the patterns I plan to knit during the GAL, Elgin by Clare Devine:
It’s an Aran weight sock pattern available in seven sizes (from newborn to adult L) and it’s going to make my gift knitting a breeze! You can get Clare’s pattern (at 25% off) in her Ravelry shop with the coupon code giftalong2016: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/elgin
Happy gift knitting!
