Finally…. I could post this pattern on Ravelry today!!!
I worked on it for quite a long time and frankly: there is a time when we all need to let go, even of our most beloved children…. 😉
So… here it is, out in the big big world… for everybody to enjoy!
For the first time I actually made a whole jumper out of one colour only!!! It was quite a commitment I had to remind myself that I needed to keep it… I just love playing with colour while knitting — but I am mostly a “one coloured” girl when I choose something to wear.
I tried to make things interesting with texture though: cables on the upper arms and on the sides, reverse stockinette in geometrical form and lots of double moss (almost too much for my easily-bored-self):
Therefore Be Warned Beforehand…
….this much of double moss needs a lot of commitment to get through, but if I made it you can do it, too — and boy is it rewarding… This simple knit+purl stitch is very very easy but with such a great impact!
I learned quite a lot with this pattern: the construction and the implementation of stitch patterns in different sizes would be the obvious thing of the design itself.
But also the collaboration with lovely testers who help you out in the most friendly way and are there for you… out of pure kindness, as also a quite bad experience with a tech-editor, were things I found out (the good and the hard way) by trying to make a pattern out of this project…
There is so much more to designing than “just” writing up how you did something!
