Well, its www.webarchive.org I think.  You have to know what url you're looking for.  I just went to Elann's free patterns page and copied the url into Web Archive's "wayback machine" and it came up with archived versions of the page.  It shows pictures of the patterns that were available, but I haven't found a way yet to actually view the old patterns, since it's tough to figure out what the old urls for the patterns themselves were.  But at least you can browse through what was available.  I think a lot of them were out-of-print patterns offered by the yarn manufacturers, and though they may not have them online at the moment, may be willing to provide them if you find and ask.

I saw that thing in Elann - no pix, so if you don't remember the name, it doesn't help much.  Even if you did know the name, I don't think it linx to the pattern.

You just need click on the picture or the text as you would as if it were a current site. The patterns are all there in the archive. I couldn't find the pattern that's being asked for but I didn't look at all the Elann pages. I typed elann.com into the search space and a whole list from 1998 to 2004 came up.

Thanks a million!  I found the picture, (Austermann Stricktrends 021 - Design 20) on Elann.com, but not the pattern.  It was free. How to access archived free patterns?  Huh

I have to update this. I've been looking through the site and though most of the pics have patterns linked to them, some do not unfortunately.

8ball it would be great to see a pic of the pattern that you wanted. Smiley

I wrote to Elann and they said that the pattern was never free - that they used the picture for the yarn, but you had to buy the pattern from a book that is now sold out.

That's ok.  I got the picture and can see the basic stye and colors.  I probably can adapt another pattern to look similar.

The best thing out of all of this was learning how to use webarchive.com!  Thank you thank you thank you!  I found tons of stuff in there, like archived patterns, and it was sooo helpful!
