Praktfull duk eller matta / Splendid doily or rug

Splendid-doily-by-babairisha

Kolla in den här underbara mattan! Jag såg den på Pinterest (där man för övrigt kan sitta i timtal och bli inspirerad) och började söka efter mönstret. Just den här är bilden kommer från Babairisha, en kreativ rumänsk blogg som drivs av Irina Vorosjilov, men mönstret är en design av Patricia Kristoffersen. Mönstret heter Splendid. Enligt Ravelry skulle det finnas publicerat i American School of Needlework #1277, Wonderful Doilies, men överallt där jag kunde hitta den var boken slutsåld! Och jag var inte ensam om att fråga efter mönstret heller.

Check out this gorgeous rug! I saw it on Pinterest (where, incidentally, you can sit scrolling for hours and be inspired) and began to search for the pattern. This particular picture is from Babairisha, a creative Romanian blog run by Irina Voroshilov, but the pattern is a design by Patricia Kristoffersen. The pattern is named Splendid. According to Ravelry it was published in the American School of Needlework # 1277, Wonderful Doilies, but wherever I could find it the book was sold out! And I was not alone in asking for the pattern either.

Till slut hittade jag det som ett gratis (!) mönster på hennes egen hemsida, www.pkcrochet.com.
Fattar inte att det tog mig så lång tid att hitta den. Men innan jag hunnit skriva det här inlägget så var mönstret borttaget! Jag hoppas det finns tillgängligt igen senare, eller att boken kommer i nytryck. Det här är inte hennes enda design, hon har massor av ovanliga och vackra mönster!
Trish har också många instruktiva filmer på YouTube, som är båda instruktiva och intressanta.

Finally I found it as a free (!) pattern on her own website, www.pkcrochet.com.
I can not believe it took me so long to find it. But before I had time to write this post, the pattern was removed. Let’s just hope it will become available again some day, or that the book will be reprinted. This is not her only design, she has designed lots of unusual and beautiful patterns.
Trish also has many great videos on YouTube, that are both instructive and interesting.

Visst är den något alldeles speciellt? Skulle passa alldeles utmärkt i mitt sovrum!
I väntan på att hitta rätt garn, (och mod att ta mig an ett så stort virkprojekt) gjorde jag den som duk istället. Nedan virkad i grön Cebelia 30.

Isn’it something special? Would fit perfectly in my bedroom!

While waiting to find the right yarn, (and courage to take on such a large crochet project) I made the doily instead. Below crocheted in green Cebelia 30.

  1. Vackra allesammans! Jag är så glad för min virkade matta som ligger i Elins rum. Duken du virkade är underbar. <3

    Fantastiskt fint! Var fick du tag på mönstret någon stanns?

  3. Patricia Jackson says:

    Is there any way i can get a copy of this pattern? Thank You!

      Hi Patricia! I can understand you like the pattern, so did I! Unfortunately I don’t feel I have the right to share the pattern without the permission from the designer. Perhaps you could email her and ask? I think her email address is pkcrochet(at)yahoo.com. Maybe you can also get in contact with her through Trish Kristoffersens Crochet Newsletter. Best of luck, Anita

    hej!

    Jag vill gärna ha det mönstret men det finns inte längre på hennes sida. Om du har kvar det, vill du snälla dela med dig av det då?

      Jag kan förstå att du gillar mönstret, det är verkligen jättefint! Tyvärr känner jag inte att jag kan dela med mig av mönstret utan tillstånd från Patricia som har upphovsrätten. Jag vet ju inte varför hon inte vill ge ut det gratis längre. Kanske du kan maila henne och fråga? Jag tror att hennes e-postadress är pkcrochet (at) yahoo.com. Jag ska själv också försöka komma i kontakt med henne, och om jag hör något kan jag återkomma till dig. Lycka till! Anita

    Anita – sadly you have been misinformed. Irina Voroshilova illegally stole many of Patricia Kristoffersen designs and renamed them. She did not have Patricia’s permission. What makes it even more heartbreaking is that Irina has a copyright on them – so she’s aware of the law!

    Due to this widespread theft, Patricia Kristoffersen wil not be publishing anymore patterns – thanks to Irina, she has ruined it for the rest of us that willing pay for Ms. Kristoffersen’s brilliance.

      Hi,

      I saw the image of this rug on Pinterest and liked the pattern very much. I did do the research and found out that the pattern belongs to Patricia Kristoffersen and nobody else. I wrote the title of the pattern and where it was first published. The title is Patricias own from her booklet. I take copyright issues seriously and do all I can to find out the origin of the patterns that I like. I have been asked many times for a copy of this pattern, but have always refused to share it as I don’t have Patricia’s permission to do so. The copy I have is downloaded from her own site, where she herself shared it for free.
      I don’t feel I have done anything wrong here. I have tried to contact Patricia but got no reply.
      It is a shame that pattern theft has this effect, but I also feel that as there is now hardly any way to buy Patricias patterns as they are out of print, it is too easy for dishonest persons to make profit om others peoples work.
      Thank you for taking care of Patricias interests.
      Best regards, Anita

    The pattern seems to be shared without Patricia Kristoffersena permission. Please don’t download it from Irinas web site without permission from Patricia herself.

    there is hope anita – leisure arts has told pk that they will be republishing her out of print books. several of the individual patterns have been republished there, but sadly do not show up when searching by her name. leisure arts is aware of this and hopefully will be fixed. e-patternscentral.com has “exquisite doilies” book and “InThreadibleHome” on Etsy has several of the most recent.

    i sincerely hope that Ms. Kristoffersen will have a change of heart as her creativity is rarely seen.

    Hej Anita! Jag har köpt mönstret till mattan/duken Splendid på etsy men skulle behöva lite hjälp att översätta. Har precis börjat virka och blev förälskad i den mattan jag såg men fixar inte riktigt mönstret när det är på engelska.. Kan du hjälpa mig?Kan maila mönstret så du ser att jag köpt det.
    Mvh Liza
