  1. I agree it would be nice to have a download option, but I just cut & pasted it into a blank document and saved it with the downloads I’ve already done. It’s actually a much cleaner copy than those downloads. 😉

  2. I agree with Juliette,
    whats the point of a FREE CAL, when half the time is taken up with sorting and deleting and clipping out stuff that has NOTHING to do with the project?
    All the joy is taken away before you even start. Why do most have the PRINT FRIENDLY buttons, and not others?

    1. Hi Edith, thanks for writing. I am only able to offer patterns for free because of the advertising on my site. The income I earn as a crochet designer is important to my household. Thanks for understanding.

  3. Thank you for sharing your patterns. I very much appreciate your doing so. I copy and paste the patterns you share into a new document. For gosh sakes you are kind enough to share your patterns for FREE you’d think that fact alone would abolish all the whining for a PDF. I cannot wait to start this CAL. Unfortunately, I am working on some birthday and baby shower gifts. I won’t have time to do so until late September. Thank you, again for sharing your patterns.

    1. Thanks so much for your kind words, TaraLeigh. You are just like me – always have too many projects on the hooks! I can’t wait to see your version when you have time to get to the Wonder Blanket.
