Fan Favorite Sweet Sixteen

Thanks to your votes last week, our 42 nominated patterns have been narrowed down to the top sixteen--our Sweet Sixteen, if you will. As the basketball March Madness tournament plays out across the U.S. over the next 2+ weeks, so will our Fan Favorite Pattern tournament here on the blog and on Facebook. 

How does the bracket work, you ask? Each day we'll post competing patterns from the bracket and you choose your favorite. Whichever pattern receives the most votes will move on to the next round--through the Elite Eight, into the Final Four and then down to the final two patterns. From those final two, your votes will choose the Fan Favorite pattern!
