Happy Stitches

Keep your stitches smiling!

An exciting new enhancement to my Lucy patterns! February 26, 2014

Hooray for my new Igloo Scarf pattern featuring clickable links!

Hooray for my new Igloo Scarf pattern featuring clickable links!

Say goodbye to the need for copy-pasting links from my patterns! Thanks to the kind assistance of JC Briar, we can now offer you patterns with genuinely clickable links. Until now, the best I could manage was links written into the text that could be  copied and pasted into a browser to allow access to the supporting videos offered in some of my new patterns.

Our first pattern to offer this, right out of the gate, is the Igloo DK Scarves pattern. I have highlighted the links in turquoise, and a simple click on that  link (if an internet connection is available) will take you to the specific video on YouTube.
I have also included the links in full on the last page of the pattern, in case you are working from a paper version of the pattern.

For those of you that haven’t met JC Briar, she is the brilliant mind (and everything else) behind the excellent book on charting, Charts Made Simple, and the amazing Stitch-maps website, where you can find shaped charts that look like real knitting.
Previously released patterns will gradually, over the next few months, have their video clip links converted to live links.  Let me know what you think: how will this new feature add to your knitting experience?
