Today’s blog post comes with a lovely note from Carol :
‘So I wanted to spread a little Christmas cheer this year so I decided to do a little scavenger hunt for clues! For 4 days (December 19th to 22nd) I will scatter 3 pattern photos with codes in the photo on my ravelry patterns. Every day I’ll put them up around 5 hours before the codes goes live and I’ll take them down that evening. New codes will be put up in different locations on each of the 4 days. This is just a little pre-Christmas gift for you all!’
Are you all excited! To make it fair the release times for the codes will be spread throughout the day so that no one timezone has an advantage.
So what are the prizes?
First Prize (one only): €24 coupon
Second Prize (one only): €12 coupon
Third Prize (60 available): €6 coupon
Every prize is a single use coupon only, so you can’t go back and use one again if you have already won a prize. Also, it has to be used in a single purchase so if you have unused credit in the coupon you can’t go back and use it a second time.
Want some ‘hints’ come check out the ravelry thread!
Monday 19th: Live 5pm Irish time
Tuesday 20th: Live 10 pm Irish time
Wednesday 21st: Live 5pm Irish time
Thursday 22nd: Live 10 pm Irish time
For anyone outside the Irish time zone find your local equivalent here.
How does it work:
- Find the code hidden in the pattern pages.
- Fill your Ravelry shopping cart.
- Fill in your coupon code in the ‘use coupon code’ of your Ravelry shopping cart.
- Enjoy your pattern!
Note: The coupon won’t be valid until the ‘live’ time for that day. Do be warned the first 2 prize codes will probably be used very quickly!!
Are you ready for some fun? If you don’t have a Ravelry account don’t worry it’s free and you can sign up here. Don’t forget to show Carol what you chose with your coupon and you can share the excitement on all social media with the #gingerbreadhunt.

Thank you so much, I just won a third prize! Delighted with myself.
I found a code but when I put it in it does not work…..?
The first 2 codes went within a few minutes. There are still some of the third code prizes available though.
I guess I am confused…how do you know when they go live?
Ah! The timing was supposted to be in the blog post but got omitted.
It’s in there now!
can you give an example of what one of your codes would be?
Are you talking letters, numbers?
I found the code…placed a pattern in my cart. Code didn’t apply so I’ m not sure what good it did to go through all the patterns to find it. I purchased the pattern and that’s all there was….no discount or anything. Nice pattern though. Oh well, I never have any luck playing these games….I don’thave the time to look for hours either. Hope some one else has better luck than I did.
In the corner of one of the photos you’ll see a little gingerbread man holding a banner (just like in the blog post) with some letters and words. It’s usually a couple of images inside the pattern.
Sorry you didn’t have any luck. The first 2 codes were used quickly.
Thank you so much! I found a coupon and chose Tembo. Gorgeous!
