Indie Gift A Long – My Picks

The IndieGAL is in full swing.  In case you don’t know what it is:

  • Designers choose up to 20 designs to offer at 25% off – look at all of them
  • The sale goes from Thursday Nov 13 – Friday Nov 21
  • After that, the KAL goes until Dec 31st.  Knit ANY pattern from a participating designer to qualify.
  • There are TONS of prizes – take a look
  • More questions?  There’s a group on Ravelry for the GAL.

I spent some time yesterday going through the thread of participating designers – all TWELVE pages of them.  Lots of designers – many I recognize and some that are new to me as well.

Here are some of my faves.

IndieGAL1Newsboy Hat Hannah, Tangerine Trees, Jamison Square, Ricochet, Lonely Road and Skipperling


IndieGAL2October sunrise, Zippety, Colophon, Bluet, Sea Dragon Shawl and Red Robin Shawl


IndieGAL3Antiquity, The Vampyre, Cycles Reversible Scarf or Wrap, Wickershanks, Phi and Biellese


IndieGAL4Lichen, Lawsonia, Trilinear, Piewhacket and Rendezvous


23 designs – mostly smaller items like mitts and cowls but with a couple pullovers and larger shawls thrown in as well.

I couldn’t possibly knit these all in the GAL but I do plan to buy a few of the patterns later this week.  A couple have been in my faves for a while so why not save a couple bucks and support indie designers?  A win-win in my book.

What are you considering?  With so many designers I’m sure I missed a few.

I’ll catch you on the purl side.

  1. Thanks for featuring my Skipperling and Bluet patterns, Jody! This is a beautiful collection of possibilities. Hope you have great success with your holiday knitting! Bonnie

    • they’re both great patterns – all your are, really. i picked the two i showed because i like the look of cables mixed with lace.

  2. Ricochet and October Sunrise are my favorites here. I’m not doing the GAL, but it seems that many people are and I can’t wait to see what they make.
