Indie Design Gift-a-long 2019

You know what time it is! The Indie Design Gift-a-long is back again for another year.

What? If you've never heard of the Gift-a-long (or GAL for short) before, you've been missing out on the biggest annual pattern sale on Ravelry. The Indie Design Gift-a-long celebrates indie pattern designers with lots of knit-alongs, crochet-alongs, contests, treasure hunts, and prizes. And it marks the beginning of the holiday season: Christmas is a mere month away so it's time to get cracking on gift knitting. This is the seventh year of the GAL and my fourth as a participating designer. For this year I've included a selection of sweaters, shawls, and cowls — all perfect for knitting for yourself or for gifts. My 2019 Gift-a-long offerings contain a mix of new releases since last year's GAL as well as some old favorites.

But when does it all start?

When? The Indie Design Gift-a-along kicks off with a week long sale period from Tuesday November 26 (8 pm Eastern) to Sunday December 2, 2019 at midnight. Nearly 300 designers from all over the world are having a sale on 5000+ of patterns in 8 different pattern categories. That's massive!

What's 8 pm US Eastern in your time zone? You can check it here so you don't miss the kick-off.

How to take advantage of these amazing offers, you might be asking. Use the coupon code giftalong2019 at Ravelry checkout to get 25% off 20 of my patterns.

Where? But the Gift-a-long doesn't just end when sale week is over. The rest of the event runs until the end of the year 2019. Join the Indie Design Gift-a-long group on Ravelry to participate in dozens of KALs, contests, and other events for a chance to win pattern prizes from me and all the other participating designers.

All my patterns are once again eligible in the Indie GAL KALs, not just the ones included in the Gift-a-long bundle. Get your gifting on! Will I see you in the GAL?
