Frankie began life as a baby lobster in the oceans near New England. He soon discovered that he was destined to become the contents of a lobster roll . . . and he began plotting his escape. Under the cover of night, he left to seek a new life in the Midwest. Frankie has found a human family to live with and is delighted with his current job, providing cheer to folks who need it!

I'm not seeing the link either.  I thought they could be downloaded from the first through the eighth.

Hi there!

Love the pattern and for those who couldn't find it--

try this link- (you may have to copy and paste it)  http://www.crochetme.com/content/2012CrochetMeCalendarAmigurumi.aspx. There's a button that says Download about halfway down the page.

Thanks to Stacey Trock and the folks at Crochet Me for the fun pattern!

I am soooo frustrated.  Here it is Aug. 6th.. and I still can't download this 'free' pattern.  I just received an email in my in box from crochetme.com for the free July amigurmi.  REALLY!!!    I suggest crochetme.com gets this figured out as I am ready to delete their contact from my in box.  I am getting angry and think this is very poor customer relations.

I can't find the link for Frankie the lobster. Today is the last day to download the free pattern. Vthe link posted by sbergeron00 does not work. Is there any other way to get the pattern free?

Thanks

I live in the USA and I just checked my last post which stated that it was 4:35 a.m. August 9.  It's still August 8 for 1and1/2 hours. Really would like the link to the Frankie the lobster pattern.

guess what? This appears to be a scam! There is no link. You CAN NOT get to the pattern unless you buy it! Seriously, remove me from your scam list. I paid for 2 years of this magazine and have not yet recieved a copy. Send my refund immediately.

This looks cute, I know there is a trick to finding the free download for the free pattern. I don't remember what it was though. I think I got either the first in the series or the second, the issue is the same then as it is now. The link is hard to find. If you are going to offer a free pattern you really need to make it clear how people can get it. I missed the one I wanted because I didn't get the email or see the facebook message in my news feed. It does seem to be a bit of a rip off.
