Yes, The above link does work, but you will have to add me as a friend to see it I think.
Facebook....easier to add pictures.
Sorry to say my laptop is really struggling and I am using my iPad more and more but not finding it easy to do posts on blogger, the written word is easy but adding pictures isn't so I am using Facebook more and more.
If you want to see the free patterns I am adding just add me as a friend on Facebook.
Although the original straight version can be found in a Weldons Company pattern book
from the late 1800's, the only difference really is the use of sc (dc actually because it's an English pattern book) instead of a sl st
And it's called Crazy Stitch and they have made a hooded shawl with it
Good old Weldonsworked on the straight it's still called crazy stitch today.
This shawl has been well used in the last few days too, made in 2012 nothing beats a granny shell shawl for a splash of colour and warm shoulders.
