Ever since I started designing patterns I've been promoting other designers. It's not a popular thing to do, promoting the competition, but I don't think of other designers that way. It's so much fun seeing what other people are creating and how everyone is so different. Sometimes I've found some amazing yarn by promoting another pattern and seeing what they used.
I've decided that maybe once a week I will do a post showcasing some designer friends and patterns they have released.
Did you know that you don't have to purchase a pattern to support a designer? Don't get me wrong, we love sales :) It's quite a bit of work to create a pattern, get it tested, published & then promote it.
One way to support a designer and not spend a dime is to go to their Ravelry store, or Etsy store and just give the pattern some love by clicking on the "heart". Every heart helps the pattern get a little higher on the websites where it's being sold. It's just that easy!
Just click on the graphic to go to the pattern or website.
Let's start with Nichola and her Bugs Blanket CAL.
