Heaven and Earth Designs (Aka HAED) shared this pattern free for a limited time on their Facebook page in memory of Cecil the Lion.
note: the pattern may no longer be available free, it was a limited time offering
The folks at HAED asked nothing in return, but a few folks on Facebook have mentioned donating the normal cost of a chart to a wildlife preserve foundation that helps big cats. I love that idea and it’s a beautiful way to honor Cecil.
There’s also a stitch-along group forming for those that want to stitch the pattern. Check that out on Facebook too if you’re interested in stitching the pattern and showing support.
