Haven’t we all been waiting for some good news lately? It’s here! The Indie Design Gift-a-long 2021 is on, in all it’s glory, featuring heaps of new designers, discounted designs and prizes as always.
Welcome to the Indie Design 2021 Gift-A-Long on Ravelry!
Like last year’s Gift-A-long (GAL) (and the 8 before), this year will give you: a huge list of independent designers, 6 weeks of KAL/CALs, tons of patterns at 25% discount and crazy many prizes to win with almost 10000 people worldwide participating (and counting)!
What is Gift-A-Long?
For the 9th year now we are prepping for the holidays as only fiber folks can, with special deals from tons of indie designers! This is our 9th annual GAL, and we are super excited to celebrate it all with you!
It’s a multi-designer promotion to help you kick your holiday gift-making into high gear!
The Indie Design Gift-A-Long is an almost 6 week long KAL/CAL of holiday gifts made from patterns designed by a rather extensive list of independent designers.
From November 23rd, 2021 at 8:00 pm US Eastern time zone to December 31, 2021 at midnight US Eastern time zone there will be fun games, contests, and 8 KAL/CALs that will help you get your holiday knitting and crocheting done with companionship and fun! You can read all about the details in this post: click here, or on the FAQ page in our group pages.
Once you’ve got your Gift-A-Long patterns, we encourage you to join a relevant KAL/CAL! (For instance, if it is a cowl, please join the Cowls, Scarves, & Other Neck Things KAL/CAL). To join, simply write a post in the KAL/CAL thread you want to join, including the pattern name you will be knitting and a link to your project page. KAL/CAL participants are eligible for lots of lovely prizes but you’ve got to post to win. PLEASE NOTE: you MUST be a group member to be eligible to win any prizes.
KAL/CALs will run from November 23rd 2021 at 8:00 pm US Eastern time zone to December 31st, 2021 at midnight US Eastern time zone, plenty of time to knock out all your holiday knitting and crocheting. We have tons of prizes, games, and great conversation, plus a lot of other fun, so pull up a chair and join us!
