Did someone ask for a free pattern?

Did someone ask for a free pattern?

I have to admit, I am blindsided by the uncanny goodness of the people I meet online. Not everyone lives up to the first impression they gain, but most do. I would go so far as to say, the majority of the people I have met in the last year only become more dear to me as time goes by.

Is this because I am dealing with aging, and the normal side effect of it? Well, that is possible. I know that my emotions run the gamut very frequently. I can go from laughing hysterically to bawling in just a minute. I can go from being comfortable in my sweater to freezing, and then pulling off layers of clothing in just a short period of time. Yes, I will turn 50 in just under a week, and this middle aged woman thing has me a bit confined.  It is not predictable, and when you are in the children’s room at the local library, hit with the panicked feeling of a hot flash, you learn really quickly that stripping is not an option.

Sorry, another symptom, I tend to ramble off track.  I was talking about how wonderful it is to have made the friends I have, and yes, I am gushing a bit.  I want to share, I want to give back.

Today, it is a pattern, that I created.  This is one of four in My 3 D V pattern listed on Ravelry

Some time back, Katy did a video tutorial for a stitch, you will want to watch this short video before getting started. the link is in the stitches used section of the pattern.

I am so excited to put this out there for you, so Please, enjoy.

Oh, the legal stuff, just so we are clear.  I am sharing this pattern, free of charge. I want credit (I earned the right to be selfish on this point) so if you want a friend to have this, share the link to this blog, Please, share the link, I want recognition for my work, just as I am sure you do, for the work you do.

    1. Some of the bulkier yarns “stand” better than others, so if a person were to take it all the way to scuddie, it would fair well also. I like the feel of the really soft yarns, that do not become heavy on my neck and shoulders. Especially with all the hot flash nonsense. gonna have a serious chat with Eve some day. (lol)

  1. Hello Becky! Looking good. May I make a suggestion? If you are offering a pattern and it’s been tested I would give a mention of who tested for you. Nothing huge, but it’s a good way to give back. Thanks for listening.

  2. Love this Becky! As soon as I have some time, I plan on working up one of these. I am loving cowls this season! Thanks for sharing.

    1. I think you will find it is lacy and airy enough to transition into Spring really well as well, you may want to hit the colors for Spring, and pick your favorite from those. Enjoy it.

  3. This is a GREAT post! Keep up the good work! My shoulders do not allow me to crochet as much as I would like to, but I shared this because I know those in my circles will enjoy it! Bless you!

    1. I hope that you will continue to watch, and perhaps I can work with some other bloggers to get relaxation and stretching for us crocheters who suffer from pain if we work to hard and long.

      1. I will continue to watch. I followed your posts. Thank you. For the past year I have had something weird going on with my collar bones and shoulders. The doctors do not know what the problem is, the chiropractor says my collar bones are “twisting” causing my trouble, the doctor, of course, doesn’t believe the chiropractor and think I am crazy for seeing him. I don’t get to see the chiropractor like I would like to because my insurance doesn’t pay him, and I just can’t afford $100 a week for the adjustments…So, I just pray through it. But I LOVE seeing new patterns, and I save them because one day I am going to get back at it! ❤

    1. Thank You Sara, That means a lot to me. I have so much to learn. I have great inspiration from you, and and a few others. It is a Journey, and I get by with a little help from my friends.
