Best of Independent Designer Month
Well, what a month May was! We went independent designer crazy with a whole month dedicated to the wonderful patterns made by our talented designers from across the globe. Read on to see the best bits!
Every day we are blown away by the talent that comes from every one of our designers, with tens of thousands of knitting patterns and crochet patterns uploaded by thousands of independent designers and thousands of downloads every month by you lovely lot, we just had to have a whole month celebrating their greatness! From exclusive discounts to competitions and takeovers it wasn’t one to be missed! But just in case you did… you can re-live it right here…
Every day on our social pages we shared the A-Z of some of our most loved patterns for Spring. We explored patterns for women, homeware, babies and toys and collected them all in one lovely Pinterest board for you to re-live again. Here were some of your faves…
We were so excited to welcome Gudrun Johnston, Melanie Berg, Sara Thomas and Louise Walker to take over our Pinterest and & Instagram pages. Every Thursday each designer took to our social pages to share their spring photo diary, and they did not disappoint! We saw beautiful skeins of yarn, incredible patterns and a whole lot of coffee…
When you start to get to know a designer’s patterns well (let’s face it we might be working on a pattern for years!), it’s nice to get to know the person behind the creativity. We went behind the scenes with your most loved designers and ones you might not have heard of yet to find out what made them take this career path, their top tips and of course their gorgeous patterns. You can find all the interviews here. We’ll keep this going with our Indie Designer of the Week feature on the blog!
