Why are your patterns no longer on Ravelry?:
In June 2020, Ravelry announced a redesign of their new website. While the aesthetics of the site could be debated, the new site triggered hundreds of migraines in migraine sufferers, and at least eight confirmed seizures in users. In response, Ravelry has shut down the “Accessibility” thread in their “For the Love of Ravelry” forum, silencing their neurodiverse user base. Furthermore, their statement of clarification made it clear that they do not (at the moment) intend for their site to be inclusive to those needs.

As a frequent migraine sufferer myself (although my migraines were not personally triggered by the site’s redesign), I cannot in good conscience direct my followers to a harmful and potentially dangerous website. Consequently, I have removed the files from my Ravelry pattern pages, with users instead being asked to redirect to my website — a website that was designed with those various needs in mind (thanks to the help I received from friends who are UI/UX developers and usability advocates).

“Namu” (나무) is the Korean word for “tree”. In traditional Korean paintings, the tree symbolizes resilience, constancy, and strength, and their gnarled and twisted nature is depicted in the all-over cabled motif. An adaptation of my cowl pattern, this pullover will keep you warm and cozy and oh-so-snuggled-up in squishy cabled goodness!
