Last summer a group was founded on Ravelry to celebrate the love for Amigurumi toys, crochet and knitted. It was great fun and a huge success, so this year we are doing it right again!
21 toy designers (me included!) are offering their patterns for 25% discount from the 27th of June to 3rd of July and the whole ami-along runs to the end of August, when all amigurumis are shown in the finished-objects-threads for the vote and the prize drawing! Yes, just by making what you love you can win lovely prices, everything from patterns to non-virtual prizes. So it’s really worth joining! Here is how it works:
27th of June 2016
31st of August 2016
What patterns are eligible?
Any (free and paid) amigurumi patterns designed by one of the participating designers:
Links to the list of all participating patterns are here: http://www.ravelry.com/bundles/patterns-eligible-for-2016 These are free and paid amigurumi patterns designed by participating designers, so yes, all free and paid ami patterns can take part. Just by choosing a paid one, you’ll take part in the prize drawing.
What to do to take part?
- Make an amigurumi from one of the eligible patterns (see above) in the event’s time frame (27th of June – 31st of August). If you’d like to buy one, there’ll be a special sale running (offered by all participating designers) – 25% off all patterns. Yay! Just use the code AMIALONG2016 in your Ravelry cart! The code is valid from 27th of June till the 3rd of July 2016 EDT time.
- Create a project page for it (link it to the pattern).
- Post a photo in the appropriate finished objects thread (see categories in the post below).
If you use a paid pattern, your finished ami will also get you a chance of winning a prize! We have a number of great prizes donated by our wonderful participating designers, including patterns and more! The specific information about contests and prizes will also be posted in the nearest future.
Apart from all that, this summer will be all about amis, so expect some fun threads all about amigurumi!
Remember that we start on June 27th, so we take things easy and the real fun will begin then.
So come and join the amigurumi fun!
