Note: From time-to-time, there could be mistakes in my patterns no matter how much they're tested and tech-edited. Mistakes can happen in writing, tech-editing or during pattern layout. If you find a mistake, please feel free to email me. Until computers start designing and writing patterns, mistakes will happen. I have been designing and writing patterns for over 20 years. All of my designs have been created originally by me. Any similarities to any other designs are purely coincidence.
