  1. wish someone can assistBattling to knit Horst Schulz knitting,

    • Elize, I’m not sure what you’re asking. Can you please rephrase your request?

  2. Hello! The pattern linked is no longer working. Is there any advice on the pattern for one of the shells? I think I can maybe figure it out from there. Thanks!

    • Hi schmericka, it works! Try again …

  3. Is there any way to get this pattern converted to crochet?

    • I’m sure there is someone up to the challenge, do you have a budget in mind? I could ask around…

  4. I would crochet it myself..I meant to get a written crochet pattern

    • Hi Jodie, yes, that’s what I’m asking. I know several designers who would but it’s good to pay people for their skills, time and knowledge. In any case, the panels the pattern is based don’t look too difficult, I’m asking around. Here’s a nice example of how it’s modular: http://www.ravelry.com/projects/peggity/an-african-adventure — Danielle
