Snowdrops and Butterflies




Every Spring we have these sweet little flowers popping up everywhere. They remind me of Enid Blyton’s much-beloved book The Magic Faraway Tree because they flourish in the shade beneath the huge old Oak trees that are so much a part of Cape Town. I designed this square in Spring and now it’s almost Mid-Summer! Oh, the days are just too short even if the Sun sets in Summer at around 8:30pm! I’m always complaining that there are not enough hours in a day or days in a year! So much yarn so many ideas, so little time even if I lived 200 years!  :D

May the crochet fairies always be close at hand!

  9. Hi Again, Sofia! Yes, I have been to Lemnos as well. I love Greece, and the islands. Pity I don't have buckets of money or I would move there permanaently. :D Yes, all my crochet is done in US terms. There is also a video turorial for this square. Have you seen it? Also, have you connected with me via the FB page? I'm always there so easier to get a quick answer to any questions. XOX

    1. Hi there! :D I have tested the link several times now, and asked a friend to test it as well, and it is in working order. It's possible that it may have something to do with the PDF viewer on your device or computer? If all else fails, there is the video tutorial? Let me know? xx

  14. Hi Jen, I love this pattern! I saw it first on Nadjas YouTube channel and started working on a blanket made from this square. Five squares into the project I thought it would be easier to switch to using the written pattern nbut can't find the link anywhere. Can you send it to me please?

  15. Sorry but, I started this square last week so I know the pdf was there...now I cant seem to find the link again? Was it removed?

  17. Hi Jen, I saved this pattern to Ravelry ages ago, but now I can't seem to get to the pdf to print it off. Has it been removed?

  18. I don't see where the pdf version is located and I don't see an option to purchase the pattern.

  19. Where do you download the pattern? please could you make it more obvious......!

    ReplyDelete
  20. This pattern is listed as free on Ravelry but...Did you remove it because a video tutorial was made? In MHO a video is not a pattern.

  21. How can I get hold of the written pattern?

  26. I guess I join the others... I have looked for the written pattern and it says its not available any longer... perhaps you could post it on your blog... I love this and I can follow the video but I like to crochet while traveling and no to easy to watch a video whilst in the car
