Updated patterns!

I'm in the process of updating my old patterns, particularly the bibs, to include charts. I'm rewriting some of the directions to make the patterns even easier and including alternative methods for beginning the bibs and for making the ties. Look for these patterns in the sidebar to see which ones have been added. It's a slow process, but eventually, they'll all be there!

Do I detect a theme?

Well not really.  It started with the kangaroo which now has led to the koala.  It seems like there is a connection but I actually did the koala about two years ago.  I finally found the original chart and decided that it needed an overhaul, which meant whole new directions and testing.  I warn you right now that all the testing was done by me, so you all know what that means!  I did try very hard to pay attention and catch any errors.  This time around though, there is a chart included in the pdf file so you can double check me.  (Don't you love the "original" name of this pattern?)














And to Maria, who does live Down Under, I hope you'll like this well enough to include it in your special baby blanket!  I'll be watching for pictures!

Love! As usual. I love your bibs so much I've been inspired to create some of my own designs (an oak leaf and a train which I'm testing the chart right now). Keep up the creativity!

Thank you so much for sharing this pattern Elaine.
I felt something did not look quite right when I looked at it, but did not work out what till I got to make the project.
Koala's don't have tails! I know it looks a little weird, but I love them
