Welcome to the home page for the Independent
Knitwear Designers Web Ring. Our goal is to
promote Independent Knitting Designers by increasing our visibility
and accessability to handknitters.
If you would like to link your website to this ring, please
read through all information prior to signing up using the
This web ring exists to promote Independent Knitting Designers,
to connect handknitters with quality knitting patterns and
designers. If the website you are submitting is personal (such
as a blog) your site should have content that strongly points
to your knitting patterns and work and experiences as a designer.
Since the purpose is to promote patterns of Independent Designers,
the focus needs to be on just that. If you wish to have your
personal blog on the ring, you may - provided your blog's
content is mostly about your experiences as a designer and
has links to your patterns and or how knitters can purchase
Again, as the purpose is to promote the patterns of Independent
Knitwear Designers, to not have your work featured in a way
easy for your potential client to find is self defeating for
the purposes of this ring.
Membership in organizations such as TNNA, AKD (Association
of Knitwear Designers) is not mandatory, nor is membership
of knitting lists for Knitting Designers. These types of resources
are beneficial should you desire them and there are those
on the ring who are members should you be interested and not
know who to approach.
