I found out this afternoon via a Ravelry user that Magknits is no more – the patterns are all gone. The real question now is how to access the patterns now that the online Magknits archive has been taken down.
I received a question about my ‘Basic Black pattern, and thankfully I have my own computer files with pattern notes and also a printed copy from post-publishing (I think…I know my mom is knitting this…), so I should be able to recreate the pattern and post it as a free PDF either here or on Ravelry, or both.
There were many fine patterns archived at Magknits and I hope they will live on in another format! My heart goes out to all the knitters and designers who were relying on this site.
