  1. Unfortunately the only PDF that downloads at this point on 10/2 is the the lace stitch, not the top. Is this just an oops? I thought the pattern would be for the actual top itself. Thanks! Annette

    • Hi Annette, there are 2 PDFs that come with the pattern – one for the stitch and one for the top! You should have both in your Ravelry library now 🙂 Let me know if you’ve any questions, Sarah

  2. I don’t see any pattern for today. It ends at the “simple” pattern. This has happened quite often and I’ve missed many of the patterns. Thanks so much for the ones I was able to download.

    Thank you for the patterns!
