Angostura Winner!

by ysoldateague August 18, 2011

Thanks for all your lovely and excited comments about Angostura…and the winner is –
Brandi!

‘I was so inspired by this book and read it as soon as it came. I’ve been so hesitant to knit clothing because I’m quite busty but this book and this pattern can be adjusted to fit my fuller figure. I so appreciate seeing the patterns pictured on two different women. This vest is flattering and simply detailed to give pizazz to any outfit be it jeans or a skirt. The possibilities are endless! I love a good mustard color. It goes with everything, like gray, navy, brown, etc. I think that’s what I would do to show off the pretty detail.’

Congratulations, we’ll be in touch to send you your prize!

As Brandi mentioned, and it seems obvious from the variety of comments, the possibilities are indeed endless!  With a vintage dress, with jeans and boots, as part of office wear, under a jacket….

I finished mine up a couple of weeks ago, and seem to pair it up most with a shirt dress.  Its the perfect extra layer for when I’m sitting working.

I’ve also tried it with a short-sleeved shirt, denim skirt and boots, which is super comfortable and a little bit cute!  Mine is worked in Quince & Co Lark, in Gingerbread.

It’s such a quick one to knit up I’m really tempted to make another, and I’ll be looking through your many suggestions to find other ways to style it!

Pay what you can pattern pricing
Pay what you can pattern pricing

by Ysolda Teague May 10, 2019 0 Comments

Pricing patterns has always been one of the hardest parts of designing and I’ve often felt like the “standard” price of knitting patterns is both lower than other similar products (eg. indie sewing patterns) and doesn’t really reflect the amount of work that goes into them. At the same time, it’s totally fair to worry that rising pattern prices will price people out.
