THE LUCK O’ THE ASIAN!

DID I MISS A MEETING OR SOMETHING?

When the Hell did Arab sheiks and geishas start hanging out?

Wait… Ok, I see… what? Seriously?

It’s not like these two patterns have like 20 options on the cover and there just happens to be a geisha and sheikh option in both pools. Nope. This was deliberate and oddly, generational. The pattern on the right dates back to at least the 60’s; the one on the left is from the 90’s AND they are from two different pattern companies. So, unless the corporate spies at McCall’s have been sipping tea with the patternmakers at Butterick, we can safely assume that the Asian/Middle Eastern links are universal. The really bizarre thing is, I can’t even see that these two looks share the same pattern pieces!

Well, at least If you go with the pattern on the right, you get a witch. Because, you know… geisha and sheikhs are right at home with magic users?
