May Edition

The May edition of Piglet’s Portfolio of Priceless Potholder Patterns was published last night. Now over 70 designs, many in multiple sizes, for a total of over 100 charts. Posted both as a downloadable PDF and as individual page images. Clear monochrome charts can be used on-screen or printed affordably. Available for free under an “open culture” license so you can use, print, share, copy, adapt, and change to create new designs.

Folks who are familiar with our efforts will know that we add new charts from time to time, and May has been especially productive. If you downloaded a PDF six weeks ago it would have had 53 pages — but the latest version is now 113 pages, and it will continue to grow in the future.

We recognize that this “moving target” creates a challenge for folks who want to be able to print the whole thing out one time and treat it as a completed paper book, but it seems like an inescapable part of releasing our work as we go.

  1. I love your work! I only discovered you booklets a few weeks ago which means I’ve printed out 3 separate volumes using a lot of paper & a lot of ink. Going forward, would it be possible for you to highlight or annotate the new patterns so I don’t have to reprint them all? Thanks in advance.

    1. Lynn, that’s a lovely idea, but I’m not sure how best to implement it efficiently. I’ll give it some thought, but can’t guarantee a solution.

      For what it’s worth, the fact that our work is shared under an open-culture license means that other people are welcome to cut it up and remix it. If some enterprising member of the community wanted to periodically download versions and compare them to create a new PDF with just the pages that were added between the April and May editions, they’d be more than welcome and clearly there would be other people who would appreciate it.
