Ravelry users are totally the best.
Recently I saw Dustinthewind's adorable kitty on Ravelry, and followed the links to find the pattern she had written in French.

She responded very graciously and here's the pattern in French and English:

I am just blown away by her generosity and creativity. Check it out!
