The internet is full of inspiration (and encouragement if you look in the right place) and I’ve been completely and utterly drowned with inspiration. Yep, drowned. If anything was going to prove that I had ADD, then the combination of the planning a crochet pattern design and following so many amazing designers online, was going to be the thing. I’ve been overwhelmed and indecisive for over a year now. That is too long! I took the plunge this week, into waters I’m barely treading, and designed my first pattern.
This may not seem like that big of a deal to many of you, but with thousands of videos, tutorials, online classes, books, magazines, blogs and indie online craft shops, the competition is fierce and if your pattern stinks, is difficult to follow or size, you are done. So my goal was to create patterns that make mathematical sense, that flow and build in structure in a logical and simple way.
I love cables and texture so this design combines my fear of rejection, my hope of success and my love of cables. I may sink like the Titanic, but she went down in style!
UPDATE: The pattern can now be found on Craftsy and Ravelry for purchase and instant download. Thank you for your continued support and readership.
