MDK’s Pattern Party

Instead of hosting its annual March Mayhem bracket-style competition, MDK is switching things up this year and throwing a Pattern Party. Much like March Mayhem, Pattern Party will be a celebration of popular patterns from the past year. Now through Sunday, February 28th, submit your favorite pattern from 2020. Then, on March 29th MDK will begin highlighting the nominations and the party can start!
