This pattern is in the public domain, so please feel free to sell anything you make from the pattern.

This pattern is a reproduction of an original Columbia-Minerva design. I scan in all of the photographs from the original pattern book, and then construct a .pdf document by inserting the original photos and then retyping the pattern. This allows me to make a clearer, easier to read product for my customers. I just hate patterns where the font is tiny and scrunched together, where I lose my place and have to squint to read. You won’t find that here! My .pdf files are made with large, simple fonts that are still aesthetically pleasing to look at but won’t give you a headache!

As always, let me know if you have any questions. Satisfaction is guaranteed, and I will have the pattern mailed or emailed within 24 hours.
