    Thank you so much. I have a few more patterns coming out with this stitch too 🙂

    You saved my day. This definitely IS different. It looks much the same, but I like it better. It goes together so much faster and I like the look of the finished product much better. Thanks again

    Oh my gosh….. I’ve been looking for this pattern for a couple of weeks now. I have made at least a dozen of these over the years, but I couldn’t find my pattern this year. This looks much the same, but I think it may be a little different.
