A Pattern For a Cause
If you've tried to access the Erica pattern in the past few days, you will have noticed that it is no longer available as a free pattern. That is because it is now available for sale--to a wider audience--as a pattern to benefit Knitters Without Borders/Doctors Without Borders.
Sue at Little Knits has put the pattern up on her site as a pdf which can be downloaded for $2.50. For each pattern sold, she will make a matching donation of $2.50! (Read about it here.) How cool is that? Every penny will go to KWB/DWB, and a running tally will be posted on the Little Knits site! The pattern can be ordered here.
I know those of you who already have the pattern have no need to purchase it, but if you have friends who want it, I'd really appreciate it if you could direct them to Little Knits. $2.50 won't even buy a latte at Starbucks, but DWB can use it to help save a life.
I'm very pleased to have my very first "published" pattern benefit such a great cause. Your wonderful and supportive comments on the pattern motivated me to make it available to more knitters, so thank you!
