Welcome to the page of Tutorials and Links!
What does that mean?
Well, one of the things we love about our book is that the digital version has live links. That means when we refer to a tutorial or to a recipe, the link in the eBook version will be clickable! Now, you may be thinking, what about the poor folks who are looking at their paper copies, all forlorn.
We’ve thought of them too.
Below, under the horizontal line, you will see all of the book’s links listed and clickable, pretty as you please, just like in the book. That way you never have to type out a long browser URL. You just come here and click.
This page will be updated regularly, but if you would like emailed updates, you can sign up for our mailing list. And, of course, if you ever find a broken link (or a nifty page you think the Madame would like) please email.
Links here are listed by page number: and from here you can download a pdf with color pictures of each pattern and the stitch guide. The first time a pattern appears below, you’ll also find a link to a one-sheet photo page which gives you the stats you need for an LYS jaunt as well as detail color pictures of each pattern.
