If you know me, one of my favorite crochet pattern designers is Heidi Yates, the brilliant mind behind Snappy Tots!! Her patterns are always so much fun and whimsical, and even an inexperienced hooker can work them up.
She is currently running a Pay it Forward with Patterns contest. Each month one winner will be chosen - the winner will receive 10 free patterns, including all new released patterns for that month. Plus, the winner will get to choose one person to receive 10 free patterns of their own!!
If you want to take your chance at winning some free patterns, stop by and check out her blog post. And while you're there, check out the link to her Ravelry store - she has all of her patterns 48% off through the end of the day!!
