(Because so many of you have been asking me for pdf versions of my free patterns, that you could print out and use, I’ve decided to start creating, for each pattern that I release, an ad-free, beautifully formatted, and print-friendly PDF crochet patterns that will be from now on available in my Etsy, Craftsy and Love Crochet Store. My free patterns are not going anywhere. they will stay free here on my blog. With purchasing my PDF patterns and with that supporting my work and my small business, you will receive crochet pattern in PDF file with tips, tricks, more photos that go in hand with the tutorial and me answering your questions much quicker. The price will be same for all of my (NOT premium) patterns, 2.99$ (VAT not Included). Thank you so much for your love and support!)
