  • This has made me so extremely happy. I am HERE for more mayhem and I may even nominate this year. I actually scrolled down through MDKs Instagram last week to see around when the announcement was last year in case you weren’t up for doing it this year and the time had already passed. You have made my day (again).

  • I was just wondering about March Mayhem as I walked yesterday! Patterns don’t have to be something we’ve actually knitted yet, right? I’ve been buying lots of patterns this year just to help support people, but as usual my knitting is quite a bit slower than my accumulating…..

  • So there will not be voting and elimination rounds until there is one “winner”, right? Because they’re ALL winners!

  • Do you have a list of the 2019 winners?

    • There’s a link to the patterns of 2019 and the complete bracket with each set of winners in the article.

    • I love this portion of your company-
      Last year , as a result of the March Mayhem, I purchased the Felix Sweater and Woodland Loafers patterns. I am certain, I would not have found these wonderful patterns without the highlight from you. Thank you for this service! I am looking forward to seeing all the new suggestions for this year

  • I feel like an idiot, but I bet others do as well. How the heck do I figure out the URL for a Ravelry pattern? I’ve just spent way too much time with this, lol. Mere mortal here!

    • When you’re on the pattern page, highlight and copy whatever appears in the address bar of your browser. That’s the URL.

      • Thanks! The issue was doing this in my tablet. I finally figured it out.

    • Just cut and paste the link which is located at the top of the page in the header bar

    • Exclusive to knitting and not crochet, correct?

      • Is there an easy way on Ravelry to filter for 2020 patterns only?

        • Go to the pattern search page, pull up the filter search, and allll the way at the bottom of the list is ‘year published’

      • That’s right!

      • This should be very interesting. In the meantime, I need to block the body of my Oban Cardigan, seam the shoulders and work on the sleeves. As soon as I saw it last year, I knew it would win.

    • I’ve concentrated on a particular designer in 2020, but now I need to decide which pattern to nominate. Looking forward to reviewing the patterns and choosing!

    • Monica, I did a sort of the kind of knits I favor, add, any gauge, etc. and one of the categories is publish date, & I put 2020. ( saved it as Top Down, any gauge adult published 2020 )(I hope I have described this correctly & I hope it helps)

  • Love, love, love!

  • One thing I did after last year’s March Mayhem to help me find patterns for this year’s contest was to create a a bundle on Ravelry called, you guessed it, March Mayhem. Whenever I “favourite” a pattern on Ravelry now that I think would be appropriate, I also save it to my March Mayhem bundle – makes it a lot easier to find qualifying patterns now!

    • That is pure genius #MarchMayhem

  • So no more voting? 🙁 That’s a bummer.

    • I’m with with you, Kelly. I was looking forward to voting.

  • So glad you’re doing this! Thank you — I’m really looking forward to some intense fantasy-knitting. I wish you’d allow free patterns, though — my No. 1 nomination would be the amazing multi-steek sweater from Knitty. Since I can’t nominate it, I’m putting it here. https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/halmstad

    • That design has really got me thinking about possibilities! Gradient sweaters without having to figure out how much yarn to put aside for the sleeves, for a start. Thank you!

    • But Knitty pays its designers right?

  • What an excellent use of your bully pulpit! I put in a nomination .

  • Oh good way to offer it for this crazy year! Thanks! Looks like fun!

  • Dang, it was hard enough last year to only nominate two, and now you guys want me to decide on only one?? I’m not decisive enough for this 😉

  • Oh crap, I submitted my nomination, then found out that it’s free. Sorry. .

  • When can we expect the fun to start?
