Thank you for the inspiration. I am ready to move beyond beginner projects and this has given me some good ideas.
I would like to download some of your pdf’s but am not willing to load a new app (myway?) on my aging computer. Why don’t you use the system that just sends the pdf into my downloads?
This post simply a round-up of designs from different designers, including me. Each designer has their own way of providing the pattern. My patterns are available as pdfs from Ravelry; you shouldn’t need an app. Once downloaded, they can be read by any pdf reader.
I love round-up posts! I usually end up with more creative ideas that I have time for in my immediate future. Ti
