Free Pattern: "Eisley"

You might recognize this pattern. This is the second pattern I ever designed. As my list of pattern designs continues to grow, I have decided to re-release some of the oldest ones as free patterns. As I release each of these few older ones, I will be re-working them, taking better pictures, and adding stitch counts. In addition, I have tweaked some details of some of the rounds a tiny bit. So this updated version is a little different from the original.

Important Note

This pattern was designed and written by me, Grace Fearon. Do not copy or distribute any part of this page (pattern and pictures) without express permission from me. Please only link directly to this page. You may print the pattern for convenience, but please do not distribute.

Pattern Notes

  • Join all rounds with a SLST to the first stitch of the round, unless otherwise indicated.
  • If a round begins with a "CSDC" you may choose to work a CH 2 instead.
  • I recommend crocheting over your starting thread as you work the beginning rounds.
  • Pattern repeats are marked with an asterisk (*).
