  1. I have tried to download a couple patterns, get to the Ravelry page. When I click the “use a coupon” button, nothing comes up. I will try later in the day, or another day while the Giveaway is going on.

    • Hi Dotty, sorry to hear that you are having trouble with the giveaway. On each Ravelry pattern page, after you click the ‘Use a coupon’ button, you need to enter SUMMER2020 into the box, and then click “Apply”. After this, the pattern should be free for you to complete the checkout. Let me know if it works out for you. Sarah

    • Dotty…Same thing happened to me, but once I actually signed into my Ravelry account and hit the Use Coupon, then it popped up, so just make sure that you’re signed in.

    • You’re so welcome Jamie, there are some absolutely stunning patterns in this giveaway! Thanks so much for your lovely message 🙂

  2. I have tried to download the blouse pattern. When I select the coupon code link it takes me back to the Ravelry front page of the blouse. Am I doing something wrong?

    Reply
  3. It was Summer Romance Top by Blue Star Crochet that I was unable to get the coupon code box.

    • Hi Tamara, there are definitely some Ravelry glitches happening (I think due to their redesign last week). For most people, logging into their Ravelry account and then trying the coupon again has seemed to solve any issues. Let me know if this works for you and if not, we’ll work out a way to get you the pattern 🙂
