Designing a knitting pattern is easier than you think

Designing a knitting pattern is all about calculations. First you measure the body, then decide on the measurements, materials and size of your needles, and then the calculations begin! All these things,and shaping affect the number of stitches. Some knitters get frustrated by the knitting results not matching the promise of the pattern, but I don’t understand how they don’t constantly check everything is progressing correctly… I enjoy these calculations :-) Again, the reward is wearing something proudly, something you made yourself.

Designing a pattern is especially satisfying when it is accurate down to the millimetre. Working it out is like a puzzle with problems that need solving. This shape is a square on top and a circle at the bottom.
