Indie Design Gift-A-Long 2015

The Indie Design Gift-A-Long is a fabulous 6-week long KAL event of all indie designer patterns that kicks off with a sale to get everyone started! This is my first year participating as a designer, but I've watch the hubbub for the past few years and I think it's a great idea! Essentially, hundreds of indie designers sign up and agree to put their work on sale for a week. Knitters (and crocheters!) can purchase patterns at a 25% discount and if they like, work on those patterns during the themed KALs that follow in the successive weeks. Prizes are given out on a regular basis and it's a big social event too with lots of chatter on Ravelry!

If you're on the fence about joining this year, maybe I can sway you? Here are some of the KAL categories and some of my designs that fit.

If you're not feeling any of those, I have all my eligible designs in a Ravelry bundle for easy browsing, or you could check out all the other participating designers! Just head on over to the GAL forum and join the fun. The pattern sale starts tonight at 8pm EST and ends on 11/27, using coupon code giftalong2015. Happy gifting and knitting!
