And designing itself is pretty easy, once you get the hang of basic garment construction. Working up the pattern so others can follow what you do? Well that's a little harder. And when it's something like a cardigan that requires multiple sizes... well that's just a whole other can of worms.
So, I made a few notes, but the actual pattern writing got shoved to the side and thoughts of releasing the pattern languished. Until last week.
After getting my pretty red boots, I was itching for a pretty red cardigan.
or another cardigan. I've since fallen out of love with that cardigan, so I started scouring Ravelry for another. I found one, started it, but quickly lost interest.
As I was frogging it, I looked down at myself. I was wearing Cygnus. Being light-weight and white, it's one of my most-worn cardigans (Not to mention, it's really pretty!). I wear it with my sundresses, I wear it with my jeans. Heck, I've even thrown it on over my pajamas in the summer.
And then I started thinking about how nice it will look in red. Then I stopped thinking, dug out my notes, and cast on..
(And yes, this means poor Old Town has gotten bumped to the back-burner again...)
