I saw the cover of this book, and immediately thought of all of the designs that I could whip up for my Midwestern mom. I’m a little too late for Mother’s Day this year, but I’m going to grab a copy and do something for 2013!
You probably know about the Knit Picks Independent Designer Program, which allows individual knitters to design and sell patterns on the Knit Picks website. The designers are free to sell their patterns elsewhere (like on Ravelry and their own sites) and they get 100 percent of the sale price. They also get the exposure of being on a big-name yarn company’s site, and customers get the ease of being able to buy a pattern and the yarn to knit it all in one.
