  1. Is there a written pattern for The Witch Way Afghan? I don’t have the patience to sit through a video, and would really like to make it.

  2. Love the which way filet! I’m a lefty, so I figured it out from the picture. I’m using turquoise ombre yarn and it is amazing! Looking forward to trying out other patterns.

  3. There is a printable pattern of the Which Way Filet on Ravelry. It is by Mary J. Stephens and is called “FIFTY SHADES OF FAIRY”. It is a paid pattern (about $4.50 in US currency) and is available as a square or a rectangle and has a gorgeous border. It is in UK terminology with a chart at the end to help convert to US terminology. She first had it on Ravelry as a free pattern called “Fairy Slippers Blanket”, then there was some dispute, and now it is back in this format.
