Sesame from Magknits Part 1

Just wanted to spread the word that the new and improved Sesame is back up. This pattern was originally released in the August 05 issue of Magknits, but is no longer available there as most of you already know.

I've added 2 smaller sizes to this batch: 30.5" and 33.5". I've also added more details to the schematic and re-edited the work for math errors. I'm also planning on releasing larger sizes of the pattern also, hence the title "part 1", which will cover 46"-62". It might take me a tad bit longer for the Plus version because I want to make an actual sample for the larger sizes first.

After thinking long and hard about this, instead of charging for the pattern, I'm accepting donations. I put quite a bit of time into revising the pattern and adding extra sizes, but I felt it might be a little unfair to charge outright considering the previous Magknits life of the design. So if you want it for free, you got it. Want to put a few bucks in the tip jar? Well, you've got that option too.

thanks for keeping sesame free! i'm a big believer in "once free, always free" so it's nice when others feel the same way. i'm sure that some who take use of the larger sizes will fill the tip jar. i think that's more than fair.
