It has taken far longer than I wanted or planned, but I have finally finished writing up the knitting pattern for this little capelet!
Really I don't know what it is about pattern writing – I enjoy writing, I love making the pieces that the pattern is for, and I get plenty of encouragement from lovely people who want to make the pieces up, but I just never seem to get my head down and do it 😮 Actually, I think it might be because I'm always so concerned about getting everything just right and when you make things, that's not always possible. Although I have all my own patterns written down for myself to use, they're really all more recipes than actual patterns – I often tweak them or play with them to suit. Putting it in writing feels like setting it in stone and, as written, it might not be just right for a particular person's particular project. But there's a limit to how many tips and notes and suggestions you can add before you end up confusing the pattern. You have to stop sometime and let it out into the world!
Anyway, it's written now and if anyone needs help or advice with it, they can email me or post a question here 😀 You can find and download the pattern for free on Ravelry here. If you make one, I do hope you'll show me / let me know. I've got plans to try the pattern out (or make an alternative version of it) using a more available yarn, so will share any successes with that in another version of the pattern, as and when it's done.
Happy knitting! 😀
