Indie Design Gift-a-Long: Hidden gems

November 24, 2015

Lumpy knitting pattern
I've spent far too long over the past few days looking at some of the 5000+ patterns that are discounted as part of this year's Ravelry Indie Design Gift-a-Long. One of my favourite aspects of the gift-a-long is the way the indie design community comes together to support each other and our work as indie designers. This is a time of year when many of us take time off from our "work" knitting to knit each others designs as "fun" knitting. With this in mind, I wanted to search out some hidden gems. Patterns that I think haven't received as much attention as they deserve. Enjoy!
