Hey everybody! As I sit here in my home, sipping a lovely butterscotch latte, I’m feeling quite magnanimous. Also, I figured since it’s been over a month since I posted any freebie patterns, that it’s about time. I am especially endeared to this pattern as I was inspired by local surroundings. I feel fortunate to live in the great state of California, and really lucky that I am a native. I also understand that many of you who live elsewhere have a dim view of my beloved home based on the reports of others, or you had a bad experience yourself (just to remind you, those happen everywhere). I currently reside in the scenic Sierra Nevada Mountain range, where bears, mountain lions, deer, raccoon, foxes, coyotes, etc., roam free. I know they’re in our neighborhood because they leave little “gifts” in the most conspicuous places, but I don’t really mind because I love being here. Besides, I’m already picking up after my dogs and cats, what’s a little wildlife scat going to hurt?
Anyway, after all that, here’s a link to the pattern and for those of you who don’t crochet or just don’t want to be bothered I have included a link to my online shop, as usual. I also keep all my patterns and some others I find online on my Crafting Links tab, where it’s broken down into Knit and Crochet patterns. If you just click the tab with choosing from the drop down menu, there is a form where you can upload your own pattern. Enjoy!
