GOOD NEWS AND BAD NEWS!
Many thanks to all who have asked to be notified when I have updated and released the pattern.
THE BAD NEWS:
The release of this patten has been postponed.
THE GOOD NEWS:
I have been working on a book. It is being published by Soho Publishing/Sixth & Spring and will be released Fall 2016.
I hope you will understand the deadlines I face for the book are the priority and this pattern may not see the light of day again until December or January.
This pattern is no longer available through Skacel.
I expect to release an updated and reformatted pattern. Please leave a comment if you would like to be notified.
