Try back issues of Interweave's holiday magazines. I think this pattern was from the Holiday 2008 issue.

The book is out of stock and the pattern is not listed to download.  Any other way to receive it?

I love this curtain pattern! It is great for knitters doing lacework for their first time. I used a sea green color of the recommended yarn type: the blended cotton by Berroco. I ordered the yarn online from the awesome store Jimmy Beans Wool. THe curtains are hanging in the window of my front door. I tried to attach photos but had technical difficulties. Any tips on attaching photos to comments? I highly recommend this curtain pattern by the amazing designer Annie Modesitt. It's a pattern that is simultaneously simple and elegant. Knit these cafe-style curtains for a place where you want ample natural light to shine through into your home.
