MAD LOVE 4 //

MT Community Love Fund season is here. And that means an entirely new collection of patterns for our growing portfolio of GG-approved colors.

Mad Love is an annual pattern booklet featuring knit & crochet patterns from designers we love. Proceeds benefit the MT Community Love Fund, which provides grants, scholarships, yarn, and supports our yarn library program to increase maker access and equity in our community.
