It’s Indie Gift-A-Long Time!

It’s that time of year again (already!) for the Indie GAL. For those of you who are not familiar with this, it is an annual Ravelry event (this is its 5th year) where all of the good people of Ravelry come together for a HUGE KAL/CAL to help them get through their Christmas Gift Knitting. You can read more about it and join the IndieGAL Ravelry group here


The KALs run from 21st November right up to 31st December and the KAL threads are a wonderful place to share your knitting, get support, win one of the many prizes on offer and see some of the wonderful indie patterns people are knitting. It’s a lovely chance to discover new indie designers you might not be familiar with.

To make things even better for you, for the first week of the GAL (from 8pm US EST 21st Nov – 11:59pm US EST 28th Nov to be exact) all participating Indie Designers offer you a 25% discount on a selection of between 5 and 20 of their patterns. You can see my 20 discounted patterns here. I’ve been sure to include a bit of everything – kids, hats, cowls, mitts, shawls, socks…….


To get your 25% discount on any of these patterns use the coupon code giftalong2017 at checkout on Ravelry but please please please note This coupon will only work between 8pm US EST 21st Nov – 11:59pm US EST 28th Nov No tears or tantrums please, you have been warned laughing

You’ll find a list of all participating designers here

You can make any of my patterns for one of the KALs – it doesn’t have to be a sale pattern and it’s fine to use any of my patterns that you already own.

If you’ll be joining in on social media too, be sure to use the hashtags #SuzieSparklesKnitting and #giftalong2017

Also, we’ll turn the Indie GAL thread in my Ravelry Group into our very own Suzie Sparkles Indie Design Gift-A-Long KAL so if you join in with any of my patterns please come join my Rav Group and keep us all updated on your progress, we’d all love to see how you’re getting on and give you any encouragement you might need to get gifts finished in time for The Big Day

So get your needles & gift-list at the ready for 8pm US EST Tuesday 21st November ……..Ready, Steady…..GIFT!!
