    i thoroughly enjoyed your stories and tried to download the free pattern for the hat. But was unable to find the site. it kept saying “not found on this server”

      On checking I see the problem is they do not have a secure server (ie- https vs just http).
      Short answer: Ravelry links to the insecure page

      Long answer: Most sites will redirect to the http site if that site is not using the https secure protocol. So…to get the pattern just remove the s from https in the link (or get there via Ravelry link provided above). Unfortunately since my site is a secure site (using https) I can’t include links to non-https content or my site is marked as un-secure by the visitors browser 🙁 I’ll send them some feedback on this as they really should be using a secure protocol or redirecting from https.
