4th Designaversary Celebration

Celebrate with me!

In April 2020 I published my first pattern to Ravelry.

I had no idea this is where I would be four years later!

This has literally been a dream-come-true in so many ways and I’m so thankful for all the ways you have supported me. I know it’s cliche but truly, I could not have done this without you!

Bingo Game!

We’ll start the Bingo game on April 2 (to give our newest dog square a chance to shine first).

You will have all month to complete as many tasks as you can. #2024Ashlees4th

Print your card or use the digital template. Rules and details for each square are found below.


Bingo Details

I’ve written out a long explanation for each of the squares on the bingo card. Keep scrolling or use these quick links.

Bingo Prizes

I’ll make a random draw every Tuesday during my Designaversary month (the 9th, 16th, 23rd, and 31st of April 2024) from all entries up until that point.

April 9: one winner of a $10 CAD gift certificate to my Ravelry or Etsy shop.
Congratulations Mari Garcia Almquist!

April 16: one winner of a $10 CAD gift certificate to my Ravelry or Etsy shop.
Congratulations to Elizabeth Poad!

April 23: two winners of a $10 CAD gift certificate to my Ravelry or Etsy shop.
Congratulations to Susan Twohig & Donna Lucier!

April 31: two winners of a $10 CAD gift certificate to my Ravelry or Etsy shop.

Bingo Rules

  • It’s a game, have fun!
  • One Bingo card per person (regardless of how many social media accounts or email addresses you have)
  • One complete column = one entry
  • One complete row = one entry
  • All four corners = one entry
  • Entries roll over to the next draw date if they aren’t picked (For example, if you complete one column by the 9th you’ll have one entry that day. If you aren’t picked as a winner on the 9th and get two more entries by the 16th, you’ll have three entries in the draw on the 16th.)
  • Some squares have special rules to be considered complete – make sure to read the details starting here. Some items will have an optional hashtag that I suggest as a way for us to connect with everyone.

How to Enter

To get your name in the draw you must share a photo of your bingo card, tell us how many entries it counts as (example: two completed rows and all four corners is three entries) and use the tag #2024Ashlees4th.

On Instagram: make sure your account is public or I may not be able to see the tag.

On Facebook: you can share from your page or your personal feed (make sure it’s public so I can see it) or you can share in the designated thread in my Facebook Group.


More Details on the Squares in Column B

Some of the squares are pretty self-explanatory and others need a bit more detail.

B1: Crochet “Tutorial Hearts 10” using interlocking crochet. Download the free pattern, follow the video tutorials, and crochet! Show off your finished square and celebrate your skills! #interlockingcrochet #tutorialhearts10

B2: Introduce yourself in my Facebook group. Whether you’ve been in the group since it started or you’ve just joined, introduce yourself in this thread.

B3: Queue a new project on Ravelry. I’d love it if it was one of my patterns but any pattern will do! #nextcrochetproject

B4: Visit me on Instagram. Come check me out @AshleesLint.

B5: Create a Ravelry project page for a pattern published in April. Similar to B3, any pattern from any designer will count. April has just begun, so it’s possible you may need to wait a bit to see what gets published this month. #newcrochetproject

More Details on the Squares in Column I

The letter “I” is tricky with some fonts, so I hope you can tell that all these options below start with the capital letter “i” and then the number refers to the place on the Bingo card.

I1: Practice self-care. What does this mean to you? Is it time to stretch your shoulders and take a break from crocheting? Is it time to relax with a new project? Have you drank enough water today? Be kind to yourself. <3 #selfcareisnotselfish

I2: Start a new project. Unlike B3 and B5, this one has to be an Ashlee Brotzell Design to count. I know there’s gotta be at least one pattern of mine that interests you enough to get it started! Show us your progress in my Facebook group or tag me on Instagram @AshleesLint. #newcrochetproject

I3: Like and follow my Facebook page. My public Facebook page is where I post about new patterns, remind you about old ones, and announce sales and promotions! https://www.facebook.com/ashleeslint

I4: Try a new stitch. If you haven’t yet tried interlocking crochet or overlay mosaic crochet, I definitely recommend one of those. If you’ve got those figured out already, try something else. Make a gauge swatch and celebrate your new skill! We’d love to see your new skill in my Facebook group but you can celebrate however you deem fit! #newcrochetskill

I5: Add a finished project photo to an album in my Facebook Group. I have over 300 patterns, and if you’ve managed to finish one we’d love to see it! Visit my Facebook group, head to the media tab, choose albums, and then find the album that belongs to the project you’ve just finished. Alternatively, once you’re in my FB group, try searching for the pattern name and the word ‘album’. In the results, make sure you click the “pattern title – album” link which should give you the opportunity to add your photo.

More Details on the Squares in Column N

N1: Introduce yourself in my Ravelry Group. This square is similar to B2. Check out my Ravelry group and introduce yourself in this thread.

N2: Use “My Fabulous Crochet Day”. This is a free printable I’ve created for you! Grab your free PDF here.

N3: Freebie. Does this need an explanation? Mark this square as done 😉

N4: Buy a new pattern. I’d love for you to purchase one of my patterns (of course), but I’m not picky about who you choose to support! It could be a crochet pattern, it could be a knitting pattern, it could be something you’ve had your eye on for awhile, it could be an impulse purchase. Optional: tell us which pattern you’ve acquired! You can find my patterns on Ravelry and Etsy.

N5: Subscribe to my YouTube channel. I believe you have to click the bell if you want to be notified when I publish new content (which I do recommend). I have video plans for this month so you’ll want to catch those! Even better, after subscribing, watch something! You could also leave a lovely comment or share your favorite video with a friend.

More Details on the Squares in Column G

G1: Join my Facebook Group. These squares are not necessarily listed in chronological order. In order to complete B2 and I5 you’ll need to be a member of my private Facebook group: Ashlee Brotzell Designs.

G2: Answer one of the Facebook polls. Patience is a virute with this one. I’ll be posting a few polls throughout the month. They’ll be clearly marked as part of this Bingo game.

G3: Weave in your ends. You know that project you’ve been meaning to deal with for awhile? Now’s your chance to finish it up. If you haven’t got a project needing some finishing touches then now’s your chance to start one (hello, I2) and then deal with the ends! #weaveintheends

G4: Join a CAL (Crochet-A-Long). There are always so many amazing CALs to join! It’s extra special when you can do one while everyone else is, but it’s also OK to work on something that was published a long time ago! Check out my CAL options at https://ashleeslint.com/cals or wait just a little bit for a new CAL announcement from me! 😉

G5: Knit something. Is this a trick? Ashlee, you’re a crochet pattern designer! Yes, that’s true. But I like encouraging people to try new things. It doesn’t really gain me anything but it does gain YOU a more flexible brain! #knitsomething

More Details on the Squares in Column O

Just like the “I” column, “O” can be tricky to read. These are not the number zero, they are the last letter in ‘BINGO’.

O1: Finish an old WIP (work in progress). You get to decide what counts as ‘old’ here. There’s also no requirements on craft or designer. Of course I do love to see my own patterns, but this month we want to see so much more than that! #finishedproject

O2: Subscribe to my newsletter. This is an important one for me. Facebook and Instagram have been known to have glitches and shut down accounts and that would mean I’d lose contact with you all! Trusting me with your email address means we’d still be connected. I don’t share or sell my list. Visit https://ashleeslint.com/newsletter to join.

O3: Share a project and tag @AshleesLint. This square requires you to do one of my patterns and then share about it on social media somehow. Facebook may try to change the tag to my Public Page name (Ashlee’s Interlocking and Mosaic Crochet Patterns) and that’s ok too.

O4: Enter the Designaversary Giveaway on Rafflecopter. Scroll up or click here to go to that widget.

O5: Crochet “Tutorial Hearts 10” using mosaic crochet. Just like square B1, download the free pattern, follow the video tutorials, and crochet! Show off your finished square and celebrate your skills! #overlaymosaiccrochet #tutorialhearts10

“My Fabulous Crochet Day” Free Printable

I created this freebie to celebrate my Designaversary with you! I wanted to give everyone a gift.

I’ve always been a really practical person and I didn’t want my gift to be something lame or boring but I also sell patterns to support my family and am already doing a bunch of pattern giveaways so I didn’t want to do more of the same.

This free download is yours to print as many times as you wish. You can even use the Canva template link to type directly on it or edit a few small things and make it more useful to you.

I hope you enjoy it!

As part of my 4th Designaversary Celebration, I’ve created “The Paw Purse”!
