New patterns: Cariv, Saltire, and Hardy :D

As promised, my three newest patterns.

Cariv is based on an ivy I saw in Carmel.

A saltire is a diagonal cross, or an X. Since the second pattern starts with big Xs, I grabbed that one for the name. :) It's based on an ancient Egyptian pattern that was in the Grammar of Ornament. Many thanks to Mafe for directing me to that book :)

And the last one is one I've been sitting on for a bit. I call it Hardy, based on a commonly used Hardanger pattern. Hardanger being a type of embroidery.

Hope you enjoy!
