The Plundering Pirate Ship pattern is of my own design, it comes with easy to follow instructions and step-by-step illustrations. The pattern is in PDF form. This buccaneer's ride carries plundering pirates and their stolen booty and it ferries them across the deep blue seas! Pirates, first mates, lady pirates, mermaids and treasure call this ship home.
