"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 really like the variety of stitches used in this top. It looks great and the different stitches keep you from getting bored while knitting it. I appreciate that the pattern is hosted on Ravelry. I can easily download it, and I can add it to my library for future use.

I would have NEVER thought I could knit something so beautiful. I followed the pattern to a site that downloaded the pattern and I was able to save or print. I love when you can do that ) The pattern is so simple and a great way to learn some new stitches. I will be making one up for my daughter and then one for me much longer. I can't wait to show this beauty off and say that I made it myself.

This is super cute and the lace is gorgeous. Love that it's an easy pattern for beginners!

This is a beautiful, yet easy, pattern. It looks so much more difficult than it is. A slightly longer version would be a cute tunic and an even longer version would be a cute swimsuit coverup. I love easy patterns that are more interesting than just garter or stockinette stitch.

I love this pattern it looks stunning when finished, although I am not a beginner so not sure how easy this would be to some starting out knitting. I found the pattern easy to follow and the different techniques expanded my stitch knowledge as it was the first lace clothing item I have made apart from scarfs. My daughter really loves it and so I am currevtly trying to make a smaller version for her, it looks fairly straight forward to adapt the pattern so hoping to have it finished for Easter.

I knitted this for my sister earlier this year when I was just a month or so into knitting. It was so simple and so cute and such an easy pattern to follow! I love that there are many different types of stitches. It's perfect for someone who is trying to learn different techniques

This is such a bohemian/beachy look. It would be a really cute bathing suit cover up. Can't wait to try this pattern!

This elegant but simple lace pattern would be great for knitters who have mastered the stockinette stitch and who know how to increase and decrease. The author also provides a Youtube tutorial to help work through any difficulties. While this cropped version is a great summer top, a few extra rows of the pattern would make a sweater fit to layer over a long sleeved shirt for Fall and Winter.
