I’ve finally finished the updated version of the Gretel pattern based on your very helpful feedback. It’s been emailed to everyone who has purchased the pattern, but please let me know if you haven’t got it (preferably from the email address you used when you bought it so I can verify your id). Of course it’s also up in the shop.
The main changes are:
The addition of charts.
Laying out the written directions in a table.
Stitch counts after every round that includes shaping.
No ‘work in patt as set’ directions – I know that it was confusing, especially to beginners, so I’ve taken it out.
I think that’s everything, please let me know what you think.
Here in the studio, we are definitely feeling like it is sweater time. Some of us are still finishing up accessories from our holiday knitting, but we are excited about making sweaters and the workplace chat is full of links to Ravelry and other pattern sources with riffs on what yarn we could use and how we could adapt them.
