Travel Through Europe Free Pattern SAL from DMC

Here’s a cute free SAL created by DMC Europe. Each month will feature a different European city: Amsterdam, Copenhagen, Moscow, London, Brussels, Berlin, Paris, Bern, Vienna, Lisbon, Madrid and Rome.

I used Google Translate to translate the page. The pattern is 155 x 220 stitches in size. You’ll find a link near the end of the blog post that has the word subscribe in it, you’ll want to click on that to subscribe to receive the first part of the pattern.

The first pattern comes by email with a subject line of :
Viagem pela Europa: 1º esquema “Amesterdão”

The pattern is actually embedded in the email (not an attachment) so you might need to check a box to turn images on inside your email program. Then they are releasing the following patterns on the blog and you’ll receive an email from them when they’re added to the site.

The second part, Copenhagen, is on the blog for February [here].

Go to Craftsy to add the pattern to your account and download the PDF.
