It’s funny how you don’t understand all the trial and error that goes into a pattern until you start designing.
When I started the design it was a much different image in my mind. It was originally going to be over-sized and baggy. However, my cast on was way too big. Think the width of my love seat too big. I wanted positive ease but not that much!
So I tried again.
This time with the vision in mind that is now the final product. A cropped, fitted v-neck sweater that has lovely arm detailing. I have a soft spot for the latter, which is evident in this pattern and in my Rose Tyler Cropped Cardi.
This was my first time designing a v-neck but I’ve made them before so I wasn’t going in completely unawares.
I also decided it was high time I start being more inclusive in my sizing. In the past, my designs have gone up to XL or maybe 2X. This time, using Craft Yarn Council guidelines, I wrote from XS to 5X. So busts ranging from 30″ to 62″ can make this sweater!
I also plan on reworking my other garments over the rest of the year, I’ll need testers to confirm yardage and measurements so keep an eye out!
