These three patterns were included in the craft book the Anticraft: Knitting, Stitching and Beading for the Slightly Sinister which is now out of print. The craft book is still available from various sources but Erssie has released her own contributions both as single patterns, and as a booklet with all three patterns updated with an extra skulls chart and a new chart for MP3 Players. Ok that last design is probably not Gothic, but has Andy Warhol been alive today he might have ditched the soup cans for a more iconic motif to use in his unit based artworks.
