Dreaming of Snow White?

by ysoldateague January 09, 2008

If you’ve been thinking about making Snow White but like the idea of knitting along with others you might be interested in knowing that the pattern has been nominated as a possible next pattern for the Sexy Knitters Club. Anyone can join them and there have been some great, very active knitalongs in the past. So if you’d like some company and little motivation to start you can vote for the pattern here.
I know that some people are concerned about bra straps being visible with the neckline and I’m going to see what I can come up with in the way of ideas for dealing with that, let me know if you have any.

Thank you to everyone who commented on yesterday’s post. It confirmed my suspicion that different people think differently and have different preferences – can’t please everyone – but I found your comments fascinating to read. I’ve really been trying to focus on how to make patterns as clear as possible, especially to beginners without much pattern reading experience, so your comments are really helpful in seeing my directions from the user perspective.

While I’m rambling about my patterns you might also like to know that I’ve added pdf versions of a couple of my free patterns. You can now find links to download the pdfs for Urchin and the Garter Stitch Mitts on my free patterns page, while Ravelry users can download the pdfs and add them to their own library from the Ravelry pattern pages – how cool is that?

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.
