I've had a request to add more of the old free patterns to the blog. In a perfect world, I will be posting those patterns on a new website rather than putting more time into the blog. Either solution seems a way off.
I'm in the process of converting the old patterns into easier to read pdf files. They were quite a mess on the old website. At first, I thought I would be merely reformatting them, getting them all the same font size with nice margins and columns. But as I look at them, each time more questions arise. Should I leave the abbreviations on each pattern, or make one master list? Should I do more to standardize the formats of all the patterns? The notation style varies a bit from pattern to pattern; how much should I do towards standardizing that? Should I just take the quickest way out since these are just free patterns, since I already don't have enough time for everything that needs doing? Some days I get some work done, and sometimes I just dither.
Good news, in the meantime, I have discovered that some of the links to the old website still work. Try this link, which should bring up the old free pattern directory. Clicking on the pictures doesn't work anymore, but the navigation links in the column on the right hand side of the page still work for now.
