In the New Year I’m going to be taking all my patterns offline for an extended period so I can re-do layouts, photography, some samples and reorganise my store to take into account new tax laws applicable in the EU from 1st January.
The patterns won’t be available for quite a while so if you want to grab anything do so now!
All patterns are 25% off until midnight on 26th December (no coupon needed) after which they will be deactivated for a while. Here’s the store: http://www.ravelry.com/stores/patricia-martin-designs
Feel free to spread the word
This pattern is named after the classic French 75 cocktail:
20ml Lemon Juice
10ml Sugar Syrup
Enough Champagne to fill the glass
Maraschino cherry for garnish
Put the gin, lemon juice and sugar syrup in a cocktail shaker and shake. Strain into a champagne flute, top up with champagne and add the cherry for garnish.
French 75 uses short rows, beading and ribbing to create an elegant and wearable shawlette.
The pattern uses approximately 9g of size 6/0 (E, 4mm) beads.
