"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."

I do wish they hadn't numbered the steps outside of the row numbers, I've had 2 students bring this to me now wanting to know how and why they will cast on 25 stitches again.

Hi Lisa, thank you for bringing this to our attention. I'm only seeing "cast on 25 stitches" listed once. Is it showing up twice on your end? I'd like to help! Unfortunately the numbering is part of our templates, but I'm happy to bring this suggestion to the team as a tech enhancement to have bulleted lists instead! Thank you for your feedback.

It says 1. cast on 25 stitches, then you follow row 2-5, but then get to the end and it instructs you to follow rows 1-4, but row 1 in this case is the cast on, not the actual pattern rows, the numbers need to be removed or altered to reflect the pattern correctly. Reading to repeat rows 1-4, makes it seem to beginners that they are casting on 25 stitches every row 1.

Could you please put more pictures with patterns instead of having to click on each individual link to see what the pattern is. This process takes forever.

What a lovely looking scarf. I like the yarn used as well. This is also a good pattern for beginners because you learn a new stitch and the result is a scarf which is anything but ordinary. The yarn does most of the work. Thank you.

This really does remind me of a candy shop. So vibrant and fun. I'd love wearing this with a plain winter outfit, just to add a fun pop of color. And super simple to make, too.
