      Sorry about that Heather! It’s fixed but from the time stamp it looks like you’re loading an older, cached version of the page. Try hitting CTRL-SHIFT-R to refresh the page – then you should have the working link. :)

    Thanks for that round-up! I still have a woven tartan baby blanket that my Grandma has made more than 40 years ago, it’s so special and unique!

    The Lumberjack Flannelghan is a favorite of mine. We have 5 of them in the house and one is covering our Cal King bed. I find it super fast to work up so don’t let the size scare you. I wanna try some of the others tho, plaid is comforting to me :-)

    I would love to try my skills doing your plaid dishcloths, but am unable to print a copy of this pattern, do you have a link where we can download and print the pattern?
    Your patterns are just beautiful and I plan on doing quite a few!

      Hi Bonnie! I’m glad you like them but they’re not my patterns. :) If you click on the name of the washcloth pattern and go to that blog post, you can ask the designer about how best to print from her site. :) Thank you!

      Hi Liz! I’m afraid I can’t find any record of that pattern or that designer on Ravelry, and the only Sarah Gordon I find on Google is an actress.

    EMAIL has to be in lower case…I have been looking for a pattern for a Hume (also spelled Home) Scottish Clan afghan. Do you have one or know where I can get one? Thank you so much. I hope to make this for my son for either his birthday or for next Christmas…depending on how long it takes me. Thanks for your site. Sincerely, Eileen

    Just to let you know, I adapted the idea of the plaid dish cloths to make a lapghan.
    I used worsted weight Red Heart yarn, made up my own spacing between the lines of double crochet in the
    width & length needed.
    While the other plaid patterns are beautiful, I wanted something that could work up easily & fast.
    To make the vertical lines I used a crochet hook 2 sizes larger than what I used to crochet the base part
    of the lapghan. This way it was easier to make the vertical chain loops without them pulling too tightly.
    I wish I could upload a picture to show you how it turned out.
    Many lapghans are geared towards women, but I thought perhaps a plaid one would appeal more to men
    who use wheelchairs in darker colors. Lighter and/or pastel colors would be nice for women using this pattern as well.
