I know what you mean about patterns. It's frustrating, but at least a lot of them are free patterns so you don't end up buying duplicates.

That half-moon shawl is on my to-do list, ironically, for Christmas. I was planning to use a bulkier yarn than that ugly linen. I don't know, I'm torn. If I do a nice boucle of some sort it will be so warm for the winter. But if I do it lighter, it will be lovely for a dressier occassion. I suppose it depends on who I make it for. I hadn't seen the Romance version, but it looks a lot better than the linen one. I agree that it needs to be longer.

Doesn't seem right they can change the yarn and rename the pattern and call it new.

Let Elena know that windex works better than water! hehehe I think in Jersey we are having the worse ant season because of all that rain. I can't use my kitchen, but it sure is fun cleaning the floor while killing the ants. Hey you could give her that chore in the process of all the slaughter. LOL Have a great weekend.

I agree. Changing the yarn and hook size doesn't make it a new pattern.
That Elena sure is a thinker.

Thank you for visiting my blog.The pattern I am using is half double stitch. Its a tank top that for beginner crocheting.I have to start from the bottom and work my way up. I started having trouble when had to start shaping the top. I am going to take just top part down this weekend and start it all over again.

Have a great weekend.

I wonder why they do that. It' still the same pattern just a different yarn.

I also agree that it doesn't seem right that by just changing the yarn and renaming a pattern justifies calling it new.
