~ Two on Tuesday ~


Two of my all-time favorite crochet patterns:

* the round ripple - I absolutely love this pattern.  I was using Angel Fire's pattern, but for some reason it's not being shared anymore.  The two sites where the pattern was posted say "sorry, page not found."  I don't know why the designer decided not to share with us anymore, but it's a shame.  I love that pattern and I know a lot of my readers love it too.  It's a good thing I have the pattern memorized.



* the granny square - who doesn't love the granny square?  It's a very versatile pattern that you can use to make anything from coasters to an afghan.


I love crochet.  :)

  1. If it was on a website or a hosted blog sometimes people don't want to pay the cost of the host anymore and they let the site lapse. It doesn't always indicate they don't want to share, sometimes they just aren't able to keep up the site anymore and it when the time to renew comes they let it expire. The Yellow House was caught in time and encouraged to put their patterns on Ravelry before they were all lost. I suspect others do retire their patterns. It is a shame we don't have a chance to talk with them and make sure before they exit the Internet.

    Sometimes you can find lost links on the Wayback machine if you lose a pattern and you still have the old link.

    I so enjoy seeing all the things you make. Shame about the pattern. I made a round ripple ages back now but I didn't keep the pattern.

  9. Sent you a comment from my iPad today and don't see it here. Maybe you haven't read it yet? possibly, or for some reason it just landed out in cyber space floating around?
    Have a good weekend,
    Susanne :)

  15. oh no! That's not good that it's not shared anymore. :( I love round ripples, but I haven't made one in quite awhile (couldn't crochet for awhile due to chemical allergy damage on my hands). So I didn't have it memorized.
