Hello! Firstly, a quick update on where I'm at with my Perth Beanie crochet pattern (pictured above). Testing is almost finished and that has been a really enlightening process for me. My testers picked up on a few things that I would never even have thought about. One testers was confused with the term "counts as a stitch" vs "does not count as a stitch" - not an issue with the pattern exactly, but something which I understand yet forget that not everyone understands the difference between these two terms. This is something I will address in a future email/ blog post.
Something which is possibly new to you is one of the stitches in my design - the Alpine Stitch - have you tried it before? I love it for its dense & squishy texture! There's a new video tutorial from me up now on YouTube demonstrating this wonderful stitch - if it's a stitch you're not familiar with, please do check it out!
I'll be back in touch soon with details of the pattern release, until then, happy crocheting,
