Hi Anna,

The link to Ravelry is actually a "download" button that is pink with pineapples on it. So, here's the process - take note of the coupon code in pink above the designer's photo on this page, click on the designer's photo from this page to go the designer's page, scroll down and click on the "download" button to go to Ravelry. Once on Ravelry, put the pattern in your cart and apply the coupon code. It should come up as FREE. Then checkout.

Please feel free to email me if you continue to have issues. itchinforsomestitchin@gmail.com

The link on the image for today's pattern is incorrect, it leads to a broken page. The link should be https://www.hanjancrochet.com/free-mosaic-crochet-tote-bag-pattern/

Also, I can't see the code. I don't know if it's just me, I've cleared my cache, tried different devices, different browsers, etc., still no code. 🤷🏻‍♀️

Hi Alexandra,

Yes, she updated the link to her post and I didn't update it here until her day went live. It should be correct now though.
