There is a free pattern site that I can't remember the name of and can't find anymore.  Help!

It was similar to Crochet Pattern Central in that it was a repository for links to other free sites on the Web.  All different kinds of patterns: squares, clothing, home decor, toys, etc.  There was some overlap with Crochet Pattern Central, but other patterns weren't linked to from both.

The background was black with white dots that looked like "stars."  The site owner would occasionally place asterisks or marks next to new patterns when the site was periodically updated.

IIRC, it was not a site maintained by a magazine, a retail craft store, a LYS, or a yarn manufacturer.

Thank you!

I thought it might be this one, but the color scheme doesn't fit.

Oh no!  A lot of the links on that site are dead.  Apparently, one of the sources for the patters, an AOL-affiliated site, shut down a couple of days ago.  Hopefully, the person who had the original AOL site will update a new one with patterns and the Index site will update the links.  Thanks again.

AOL is currently doing a major reworking and they are requiring all the people who have sites through them to transfer everything over to the new format.  If the website 'owner' doesn't do so, all info will be lost.

Hopefully, the site owner/manager updates things.  If not, I'll sorely miss the site (and I'm sure many more would too).

I hope its updated soon.  I never been to the site, until just now after reading this post.  It seems like a great site too.

Want to learn to crochet or knit?  I have a ton of extra crochet hooks & circular knitting needles.  Will throw in some pattern books and yarn for anyone interested in a swap.

You could go to www.archive.org and type the url of the missing pattern into the Wayback machine.  You might be able to find an old copy of it there.

I'm pretty sure this website hasn't been updated in ages. The links that have the word "new" next to them have been that way for a couple of years. :/
