It’s finally done. It’s been a learning curve, and it’s taken longer than I expected, but my first knitting design is published now.

The test knit was interesting. Although I had the pattern tech edited before hand, my wonderfull test knitters still found a handful of small mistakes. They also offered some very valuable advice as to how to make the pattern clearer. I really learned a surprising amount in the process.

I was quite excited tonight when at last I was able to bring everything together, upload Tidal Beach onto Ravelry and press ‘publish’. I guess I can call myself a designer now!

Tidal Beach is a triangular shawl constructed in the usual way: knit from the top down with a centre stitch and four increases every right side row.

The pattern includes both written instructions and charts. Construction and stitches are relatively straightforward, so suitable for those less experienced lace knitters out there. It’s a design that knits up quite quickly, as only four out of every 24 rows are patterned. And it’s got a lot less purling than most lace shawls!

If you’re interested in purchasing Tidal Beach (which would make me very happy!), please go to Ravelry or you can buy directly: buy now.
