Do you like to discover and support new (to you) knitting and crochet pattern designers? Ruth Brasch has created the Uplift Make Along for that very reason: to introduce you to lesser known knitwear designers and crochet designers.
Yes, I'm one of the participating designers, but there are so many talented designers -- with gorgeous pattern designs -- that I can't help but share them with you! I narrowed down my list (by a lot) for the sake of not making this blog post overwhelming, so I can assure you there are a lot of other amazing patterns in the mix too!
I found a lot of shawl designs that I was drawn to, but that isn't especially surprising since shawls are my most worn knits. Among the final patterns that I chose to share, there are also some socks, tops (sweaters and cardigans), and even a fun amigurumi pattern!
You can click the photo or the link listed below the photos to purchase the pattern. (And yes, I did sneak in a couple of my favorite designs that I created!)
