  1. Hi, Rachele.

    I downloaded the pattern for Lincoln and found a problem. First, the underlined link in the message actually goes to Johnny square. Second, the PDF data and photo are skewed, so the pic for the print-friendly last page covers part of the diagram, and all the data from the last page has slid upward. You probably will want to repair that.

    Thanks, and thanks, too, for all the lovely patterns. I’m working to finish the Mr. Ghan CAL by Melinda Miller before tackling the VVCal, so right now I’m just accumulating the patterns. I hope to finish Mr. Ghan in a week or so. 🙂

    • Hey, again! I’m trying to fix the broken link that goes to the Johnny square – I don’t see where that is. Can you tell me which link is the culprit? Ravelry? This site? That will be a big help! 🙂
      Thank you!

  2. The link for Lincoln square on this page, VVCAL Week 17 goes to the Johnny square.
