Step out of your comfort zone and start a project without a pattern. You’ll be glad you did.
If you find yourself working within the comfort of a pattern but find yourself losing interest, it may be time for you to venture out and create your own project. I love the therapeutic aspects of working through a pattern but it doesn’t appeal to my creative side and I often find it hard to finish.
I love the uncertainty that comes from improvising your own design and recommend that everyone try it at least once. The experience and knowledge you gain along the way is priceless.
I’m here to teach you the three steps you need to know to get started with your own design.
- To find the type of project that you love creating.
- Go-to projects that are good for a first design.
- To gauge your attention level needed for a pattern.
- Resources to finding stitch patterns.
- How to consider stitch patterns for project type.
- How to calculate the foundation chain.
