I would like to congratulate a fan and Facebook friend, Mary Kathryn Vaughn. Red Heart accepted one of her designs to feature on RedHeart.com.
It is called Shades of Grey Scarf Crochet Pattern.
I met Mary Kathryn a couple years ago as she became a video tutorial host on AllFreeCrochet.com. I noticed she had a strong teaching presence, pleasant to listen to and was producing great tutorials. I had the opportunity to speak with her about her skills and offer some small suggestions for improving her videos.
One thing led to another and she followed some advice I had given to her, she ended up meeting the Red Heart team directly. A move that makes this pattern on RedHeart.com a reality.
Mary Kathryn is following her passion and we as crocheters get to journey along with her as her pattern is 100% free thanks to Red Heart.
A big congratulations to Mary Kathryn for her accomplishment.
Side Note: Mary Kathryn did the leg work required to make this a reality. I have no influence at Red Heart for getting patterns and other situations to occur. They have their own operational procedures and scheduling.
Though at the time, 2 years ago, I was able to offer advice and help other YouTube Hosts grow their channels, I am not in a position to mentor or lead other hosts due to busy scheduling of The Crochet Crowd.
