  • Was this taken from a known lighthouse? Just wondering. Thanks for sharing the pattern. Lighthouses continue to be popular.

  • I saw a picture on a shower curtain, actually. I was trying to make a lighthouse that you didn't have to do a spiral with and this is what I came up with. Thanks for stopping by I hope you enjoy the pattern!
