A quick corner to corner project – Basket of Apples

Just for Him Event

Just for Him Event

The Just for Him Event is something that I have been thinking about hosting for over a year now. I am thrilled that WeCrochet wanted to sponsor this event!!  If you want to check out their yarns and other goodies you can do so here.

Why specifically patterns just for him?

I struggle to find patterns suitable to gift to the males in my family outside of hats and scarves. Do you have the same issues? Every time I sat down to write a pattern suitable for Him I ended up making a scarf or hat! LOL I needed to retrain my brain and think outside of the box a little. Knowing that this event would make me do that I threw myself into it.

The result?

I created a whole collection of patterns! The Stag Collection. I may add to it next year because I had so much fun with it. More about this later ….

 

 

How does this event work?

  • Every day for 14 days a different designer will be offering you a free pdf of a pattern suitable for gifting to Him this holiday season. There are definitely some fantastic patterns included in this event.
  • From 17th – 30th November you need to check back here for that day’s featured pattern and code. I will update this post every day at 8am London time.
  • You then scroll down to that day’s pattern and click the photo. This will take you to the designer’s blog post.
  • Look for this button somewhere on the post, and click it. This will take you to the pattern where you can download it.

  • Follow the process to purchase the pattern and add the coupon code. It will show that the pdf is free once the code has been added and you get to the checkout.
