"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."

There's no better way to thank the gracious hostess of the Christmas party than with a knit dishcloth. Up your game by making her a Christmas Tree Knit Scrubby. This is just the thing she'll be whipping out like clockwork every winter. The festive coloring will go with any Christmas decor, and the red garland wrapping around the knit washcloth is the cutest little touch that shows you really put your heart into the gift. Of course, you could just knit a few for yourself. Who could blame you? It's adorable!
