The Dark Side of Pattern Writing

KnittingChantal Miyagishima5 Comments

I come at you today at a fragile point. I want to first tell you that I LOVE writing patterns. I really do. Getting to test new stitches, come up with ideas, swatch things out, send out to pattern testers and be as creative as you can be is like having my world burst into color. Plus, that moment where you finally get to put on the finished piece you've designed from top to bottom is unlike any other. It's the most exhilarating experience, but I also don't want to sugar coat it because I feel like pattern writing is the newest trend in our community. So many people are delving into the pattern world and I want to show you that it's not all light and bubbly. So let's take the plunge into the dark side of what pattern writing has brought out in me.
