Ooops & Elsa
Ooops - I've just noticed I've been so busy hibernating, baby sitting my grandson and playing with snow that I've forgotten to blog, but don't worry I haven't forgotten to crochet :-)
I've also been re-editing some of my old patterns.
When I closed NDS in 2015 I decided that all my existing patterns should be in the same standard and format as my future new patterns, so I started editing my back catalogue. I finished the editing all the blankets and books a long time ago, but a lot has happened in 3 years and I'm afraid I got distracted, forgot what I was doing and never finished my re-editing task.
So this years new years resolution was to finish editing all my old patterns.
The first is Elsa, which is a waterfall cardi that I designed in 2011. I designed it for myself and still wear the sample every summer.
I've updated both the written and charted motif instructions which now include both US and UK terms, tidied up the construction charts and pattern format.
You can find the pattern in my Ravelry store HERE
