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 pretty capelet, featuring a geometric lace design, is a great knit for spring - it’s perfect for covering up over a nice dress.

The Horae or Hours were Greek goddesses of the seasons, natural justice and the general orderliness of life. There were different versions of the Horae – some related to justice and order, some to seasons, and some to the passing of the hours through the day. The stitch pattern in this capelet is based on the Four Sisters Medallion from Barbara Walker’s 2nd Treasury so I chose the name Horae to reference these mythical sisters of the Ancient World.
