Ahhh, the Lotus Duster. In a lot of ways I consider this design my “breakthrough” – when it was first published for free on my blog it was what really got people noticing Morale Fiber, and it was also a huge lesson for me in how to write, grade, and lay out written patterns. 6 years, 150 tutorial photographs, a hood, 2 1/2 hours of video tutorial, and 750K+ page views later, I still love to make these as much as ever – and I hope you do too! 🌱
That’s why as I updated my new contact info to this design’s PDF I decided to also add ALL the tutorial photos contained within the file to the free blog version of the pattern. Originally, when the Lotus Duster got its first overhaul and purchasable PDF copy, I was worried about not having enough storage space for all the images. However, in the years since I’ve continued to blog and had to upgrade my image hosting anyway – so it was time to finally add those tutorial images to the free version! ✨
You can access this and tons of other free crochet patterns on my Free Patterns page here, or get the portable, printable, ad-free copy in my shops! Oh, and one more thing – this design just hit the shelves in my Ko-Fi Shop, and is on sale for only $5 until Aug 15! 🦋🌙
Most of my posts recently have been about updating the contact info in my PDF patterns, tweaking them, and giving them another home in my new Ko-Fi Shop – which is a huge job! I’m aiming to get all the PDFs updated to the new contact info (email@example.com) by the end of the year. But that doesn’t mean I haven’t got brand new exciting things happening hush-hush style at headquarters 😉 I’m slow but I’m steady, at least!
I have made over 10 of these. Lovely. Thank you so very much.
