Hey guys, so while I’m waiting for the hat to get dry enough for me to take some pictures of it (I may have coerced a friend into modeling for me…) I’ve been putting together the pattern pdf. I’ve been wondering if you have any pet peeves or certain things you like to see in patterns. Personally, I hate it when they put the chart at the beginning of a 4 page pattern…so I’ve put it in the header of every page. Do you have any ideas on what you like to see?
Additionally, I’ve been pondering over if I want to charge for this pattern. At least initially, I promise to offer it for free. However, as a poor, unemployed college student, I’m a little at a loss. Knitting is an expensive hobby- especially when you have a hankering for the good stuff 😉 . I’m considering that after a couple of weeks/months, I’ll start charging a really small fee- only about a dollar or two. All proceeds would definitely go to the yarn fund, which is currently pretty sorely lacking. Does that seem unreasonable? I’ve put a lot of work into this pattern, and it’s really a complete set. I like to think it’s been pretty professionally done. What are your thoughts? Do you hate paying for patterns, or do you like to support really, really, small-time designers? I would really appreciate you guys’s thoughts on both subjects, and happy weekend-knitting!
