"This is the 8th or 9th dead link I've hit this morning trying to look at the patterns from one newsletter, i can only presume that the person putting the newsletter together does not have time to check and verify the links."
"New pattern, first time I've seen a picture of it on this site. Unfortunately, there is a problem with the link, when you click on it you receive an "oops" message, that the pattern is no longer available."
"Not sure why you would leave your comment on an entirely different pattern but anyway, the pattern actually specifies and gives step by step instructions on what the chain 5 is- (Bring st back to left-hand needle. K1) 5 times Chain 5 made. Bring st back to left-hand needle. K4tog. Rep from to last 2 (3-1) st(s). Chain 5. Bring st back to left-hand needle. K3 (4-2) tog. Fasten off."

This is such an easy pattern. It will make up in no time at all. I also see it doesn't take much yarn which means it will be economical to make. So it's pretty, easy and inexpensive. That says it all, plus I love the colors because it can be for a boy or girl.

More info needed on the yarn please. I tried to google it, there is a Bergere de france yarn called ideal but there just isn't enough info on here to determine if it's the same yarn called for in the pattern.

Hello Ealizabethane 1862 886! Yes, this pattern calls for Bergere de France "Ideal" Yarn in two colors - "Everest" and "Elephant." Hope this helps! -Editors of AllFreeKnitting
