Excitement: the results of Round 3 voting are in. We’re down to just two patterns per category!
Here’s a downloadable PDF of the bracket, easier to read. (Apologies for all the small type!)
The 8 Remaining Patterns
Here are the 8 patterns that remain in contention for Champion of MDK March Mayhem.
Perhaps for the first time in our lives, we understand why people get so emotional about the NCAA college basketball tournament. It is hard to say goodbye to teams—and patterns—that have battled so long, and with such great heart. We give a big mushy hug to the patterns that are not advancing to Round 4.
There is a bright side here, though. There is no Ravelry for basketball teams, but there is Ravelry for knitting patterns. Over on Ravelry, you can favorite these patterns, and even buy them. If your favorite pattern didn’t advance, go buy it! Vote with your dollars! Knit that pattern, and show the world, or at least the people who follow you on social media, how great it is. Supporting independent designers feels really good.
