I've come across from Crochetville so HI! Very sweet little martian dude. I was wondering what process are you going through writing down your pattern? I've made a coupla my own designs and scribbled down the pattern as I went along, but am unsure where to start with writing my own pattern. Just wondering how you're going about it?Nice blog by the way :)Mandy (UK)
Hi Mandy...So I basically just write down the stitches as I go the first time around [my paper can sure get messy from changes and such]. Then I work out my pattern to see if it works, make changes if necessary, and try out new color combos. If I make a lot of changes I work out the pattern again. I know some designers find testers for their designs, but I just redid this one myself. Hope that helps!
Thanks. I'm sure that's do-able... just got to 'go for it'. I loved your comfy hooks (I've got lots of FIMO from when I was polymer-crazy)I might have a go at making one too.Mandy (UK)
How cute! Love the one eye.
Ok well I finally wrote up my own pattern (thanks for the confidence boost). It's a crochet butterfly posted on the Crochetville Site Free Original Patterns. What do you think?Mandy (UK)
Hi Mandy...Oh wow, that is so great! I love the butterfly wings and the color combo you chose. I am for sure going to try it out... :D
what is on your mind...
