Provisional patterns.

With the big changes in this company’s name and appearance, we have also decided to step even further from our old ‘image.’

There was a time when our first designs were new and unusual, but through the years, were duplicated so much that they just became usual. In light of this, we have decided to indefinitely retire our thread crochet patterns numbers 6-14. As you can see from the patterns below, they are in desperate need of updating!
 We may bring them back promotionally, eventually. Those that have purchased these patterns, please note that they are still protected by copyright laws, which will be enforced. For now, we would like to continue to differentiate our products and our business.

These patterns will be available for purchase until Mid-May.
Thank you!

  1. Is the Little Knothead Bears still available, my granddaughters really wanted me to make them. I can’t seem to find out where I could purchase the pattern.

  2. Hi
    I’ve lost my ‘Little Knothead bears’ pattern and was wondering if it will be available again, as I love that little cutie .. I’ve made it twice and both time the persons I gave it to loved it.


  3. I have the Little Knothead patterns and Thread Ted and have made loads for friends for birthdays and thank you’s and more, and I will continue as long as possible; I am 77 now and no sign of giving up yet!:) However, I have seen, on Pinterest, what looks like a Little Knothead girl bear wearing a white crochet dress and a blue bow in her hair. I wonder if this is one of your patterns as I would love to buy one. I have searched and searched to no avail, just pics. of her popping up where people have posted and “liked” here.

  5. I love the mouse and the little bear with the dress. When will these patterns be available again?

  6. I am always a day late and a dollar short. I stumbled across the Knot Head bear pattern as a picture and after a long and winding trail I’ve found my way here only to find out the patterns are no longer being sold. How disappointing. They are adorable and I hope you will consider selling them again. I am marking you site and blog so I can keep checking back.

  7. Only just found you with the loveliest of bears – how disappointing to find I’m too late. Please publish the Little Knothead Bears pattern again. Let me know when they are to be available and make and old lady very happy, but don’t leave it too long.

    Best wishes,

  11. Hi from Australia,

    I want to congratulate you on these beautiful patterns, and express my disappointment at them no longer being available.

    I read your blog post about the duplication and rebranding of your company, and I have to say I don’t agree that your patterns are dated, or run of the mill.

    The eye detailing particularly on the knothead bears and the elephant are unique and gorgeous. I very much wish they were still available to purchase.



  12. I am sorry you have elected to discontinue some of your older patterns. There are no others like them!! I would like to purchase your Artie Polar Bear and Thread Ted patterns.

    Please reconsider making these available again.

    I have several of your other patterns you retired and I am very happy with them.

    Please let me know if they become available.
    Thank you so much!

  13. I am interested in the Ted threads and polar bear also. Please let me know if they are still available, and how much. I love these guys. 🙂

  14. I am also still interested and I know you chose to retire them because of similar patterns are available but yours are special. I would love to purchase them please make them available again, please.

  15. 2 years since these were retired. I keep checking back hoping you will make them available again. Here’s my vote for offering the patterns one more time. I really love the look of them.

  16. Does this email mean that I can still purchase patterns 10-14??? Please let me know asap, as I would love to order. 🙂

  17. I had one of your patterns years ago and have lost it, please make them available again they are so cute and unique I was so disappointed when I found I couldn’t get them anymore.
