Winter Wonder Squares

Winter is the busiest time of year for makers. We spend alot of time making for our loved ones, participating in craft fairs, or even selling on etsy. Whoever you make for it might be time to make for yourself a little. Throughout December me and 16 other designers have come together to create a unique blanket making experience.

How does it work?

From December 1st until December 22nd each designer will present an 8x8 inch square representing what the winter season means to them. All these squares can be combined together to create a personalised blanket.

Each days featured designer will be giving their design away as a FREE PDF download. To get these free downloads come to this page each day, where the pattern will be posted daily at 8am EST. If you would like to get daily reminders for your squares you can follow this page by signing up to my newsletter and follow along on Instagram.

Spread the word. Pin this page to your favourite Pinterest Board.



What do I need to do?


Every day you will visit this post where you will find the latest pattern. Under each pattern there will be instructions including a CODE to get the FREE PDF. You will be lead through to the designers blog where you will find within their page text that reads "Click HERE to download the free Ravelry download".
