    1. Hi Sandra,
      The events start today (Jan 2nd) and the codes will be updated every day at 08:00 am EST.

    1. Oops! Nevermind! Day 5 is Jan 6! I will come back tomorrow. 🙂

  3. I cannot find the free pdf download for the Timmy Bonnet. I clicked on the “Download Your Free Pattern” box on the fosbasdesigns website but I don’t see where to click next.

    1. I just figured it out. You have to click on the same “Download Your Free Patten” box two separate times.

  4. I’ve enjoyed being able to get these great free patterns, but I seem to end up in a loop of clicking and going to the same
    Page again and then trying to find pattern then still struggling to get to the actual pattern I don’t know if I’m dense and just clicking the wrong spot on page?! I’ve clicked the photo, the code the click her to visit pattern… after then I somehow finally get to the pattern but what the heck am I doing wrong thank you

    1. Hi Laf,
      I’m sorry for the trouble.
      When you get to the designer’s page (for the skinny scarf), please scroll all the way down and look for the big DOWNLOAD button with the event’s decoration. It will take you to the Ravelry page where you can apply the code.
      I hope it helps,

  5. Hi,

    Thank you for the Blog Hop. I am enjoying coming back to your page everyday for a new pattern.

    Today , i.e. 16th, I am unable to find the code nor I am able to access the pattern page. Would appreciate your help,

    Thank you,

    1. Hi Mohini,

      I’m sorry for the trouble, I guess this is a caching issue.
      This is the link for today’s pattern, no code is needed:

  6. 18th I’m finding no code for this one

    1. The code will appear at 08:00 am EST at Raffamusa Designs’ post.
