Hi there and happy almost Valentine's Day. I've been thinking about my muk luks today. I began sharing muk luk stories the very first year of this blog. That was 2008. I actually blogged about them twice that year including an Ode To Muk Luks. Then in 2010, I decided to share the shorter muk luk pattern in a photo tutorial crochet-along. A handful of people joined me and it was fun to make them in real time with others sharing their feedback and finished muk luks. I put more time into that tutorial than just about anything I've done here on the Wind Rose blog, and when it was done, I felt satisfied and moved on to others projects.
Since that time, I have felt surprised and grateful to have more and more visitors come for the muk luk pattern. It led to the making of several YouTube support videos for people who wanted even more of a visual aid. In addition, I have had quite a few people ask for the tall muk luk pattern. I have been hesitant and have said as much in comments. It's not that I don't want to share the pattern, it's that I know how involved this pattern is and how much time it will take to create.
I'm writing about these dear old muk luks again today, because when I put something in writing, I am sure to follow through. I have decided to commit to writing the ultimate muk muk pattern. I'm using the word ultimate because I plan to include both the pattern for the short and the tall muk luks. In addition, I'll be writing the patterns in small, medium and large sizes and I'll do my best to address all of the questions I've received over the years. When complete, this pattern will be available as an instant download pdf through my shop. I will be sure to make announcements here when the time comes. I will continue to offer the existing tutorial for free, but the complete pattern will be sold for a reasonable price. I know, free is awesome, but this one is going to be a big project for me, so I hope you understand.
So this is it! This is my commitment to finally write the tall muk luk pattern and to revamp the short pattern. I'm sorry it's taken me so long, but I hope it will be worth the wait!
