There's simple and then there's taking the mick. Review by flootzavut

The reason this design only takes five minutes to make is because there's really nothing to it. I'm really shocked it's being sold for four dollars! The 'pattern' is two pages long and only about half of the second page is anything amounting to instructions. I've been working with wire for about a fortnight, so I thought there was more to it and I would learn some new cool trick. Turns out I was wrong, this is just an incredibly simple design hardly deserving the name. This would be a nice little freebie for novice wire workers to get a taste, or maybe as a really cheap download, but $4? No way.
