Recently a crocheter on Ravelry contacted me to ask about this pattern. She wasn't able to find it via the link on Ravelry. I was unaware that it had disappeared! It was originally published in the online crochet magazine Crochet Me back in 2005, and more recently it was available in the Interweave store. I dug through my back files and was able to find the original pattern, plus a second version!
I created a new pattern page and uploaded it to my Ravelry pattern store. I am offering them as free patterns. Here are both versions if you would like to download them.
It is a fun little home decor accessory pattern that could also be used for other things, like a brooch if you use lighter weight yarn or thread. If you end up using the pattern, I would love to see what you make and how you use it! Feel free to post a photo on Ravelry. :-)
