The votes have been counted and verified and I can now announce that the winner in the 'Votes for Patterns' contest was the wonderfully colourful and delightfully simple to make, stripy scarf. Otherwise known as Riot.
It was a very close run race though, and the scarf only won by the narrowest of margins. Hot on it's heels was a request for the little crocheted pincushion that I made from the African Flower motif.
Fret not, if your vote was for this useful little cushion, for I have been busy beavering and a tutorial will be following along very shortly. Hopefully as soon as next week.
As those two were so far ahead of the rest of the runners, I've been concentrating my efforts on those. But, don't worry if your favourite is yet another. I shall be opening up a poll for those and other tempting morsels for you to pick and choose between very soon.
In the meantime though, I'm very pleased to say that I have today released the pattern for my scarf, Riot.
It's a nice easy pattern and should present no problems for the beginner. It could be full of colours like my original or just pick your two favourites and use those. It's entirely up to you and you can customise as much as you like. Best of all, there's none of those horrible old ends to weave in.
Just tassels you can swish around as you walk down the road.
You can find the download link on my 'Freebies' Page as usual, or if you prefer it you can check out further details of the pattern and also download via Ravelry.
I hope you enjoy the pattern, all those who wish to try it.
