When a community holds a member to account it is not to pursue them unto ruin — it is to allow them a chance to reimburse their good standing Grace Anna, “To Owe An Apology”, Unfinished Object

On 3rd May we published a blog post titled ‘Gilliatt Sweater Roundup’. Our intention was to celebrate this new yarn line that’s just been added to the online store by showing designs offered in this yarn. We wanted to show the yarn knit up in garments so the drape and character of the fabric created could be seen. As a team we wanted to only include designs that were inclusively sized both in terms of measurement and the intended amount of ease the garment is to be worn with. However, in presenting this, we were insensitive to what was being highlighted: a lack of those sizes needed.

Expressing frustration when it was not ours to express meant we received a thoughtful and honest message saying that a reader and customer felt hurt. This was never our intention and yet we know all too well that intentions, however well meaning, can hurt. After some discussion as a team (and with this kind person), we would like to offer a post that celebrates inclusive patterns (and those designers) for garments that would easily work with Gilliatt and any similar worsted weight yarn.

If you click on the pictures, they link to each design's Ravelry pattern page allowing you to check out other people's projects and further details.
