Hi Debra,

Under each pattern photo click on the name of the pattern - that should take you to the pattern post.

Once there, look for the "Download on Ravelry" button and click on it.

Then use coupon code: SBCHALLENGE

The pattern should come up as free.

If you have any other issues just let me know!

Lacey Little Hat is opening to washcloth link, when going to Lacey Little Hat and entering challenge password, still not free!

Hi Nancy,

I just double checked the link on the Lacey Little Hat and did go to the correct post. I also clicked on the "Download on Ravelry" button and was able to get it for free just now.

I am not sure where the error might be. I can give you the direct link - it is --

Make sure you scroll down and click on the the "Download on Ravelry" button to get it for free. Perhaps you clicked on the Etsy shop button instead?

Etsy doe not allow us to provide free patterns so you must be sure to click on the button that goes to Ravelry not Etsy.

Let me know if you have any other issues and I can contact the pattern designer on your behalf.

Best wishes,
