If you download the PDF you get one for an Advent cloth. Pretty but not what this link tells you you will get. If you go to the previous blog entry you can get a PDF for a face cloth sized one of the Floral runner. I guess you can enlarge it....but I have found nothing for the flowers illusion runner itself....the comments are older also. Possibly it is gone?

The link to the .pdf doesn't work. Just a bad link or is the pattern gone?

hi , i can not download the pattern of this model ? please help me .

For some reason I can't get the pattern for the table scarf to download. All the other patterns I try work perfectly. I just get a totally gray screen for this one. Am I doing something wrong? If not, would someone please send me the pattern at Thanks much, I really want to try it.

What size US needle? a three seems awfully small for this yarn, especially since the dishcloth calls for a 10

Thank you, thank you! What a great pattern. I just finished a small version of the pattern using some leftover yarn in my stash. The sample table runner turned out beautiful, so I broke down & ordered all the colors as shown in the pattern. A bit pricey, but I know it's going to be worth it!

Yes, you'll have one color for the background and one for the flower.

If I use two colors on this table runner, would it still come out as an illusion?
