More grading and some actual pattern writing (Daily Update: 30/8/19)
I got a rejection letter from Knit Picks today. They sent out a call for submissions for Mosaic stitch patterns a few weeks ago and I was really excited - I love mosaic knitting. Plus I got my dad to draw the sketch of the pattern for me because he’s great at drawing and I wanted the submission to look professional. No worries, I’m going to try and find more magazines/collections to submit to.
After staring at my grading sheet for a while I’m unsure about my plan to base everything on a C cup. I’ve adjusted everything up a bust size and changed my size ranges a little, so they now look like this:
|Size||Bust range (in inches)||Based on this bust size in the Ysolda chart|
|1||27 - 30||30|
|2||31 - 34||32|
|3||35 - 38||36|
|4||39 - 42||40|
|5||43 - 46||44|
|6||47 - 50||48|
|7||51 - 54||52|
|8||55 - 58||56|
|9||59 - 62||60|
The new sizes actually worked out to the point that they could potentially even fit me without too many adjustments, which I’m taking as a good sign!
I also found the Rainbow Top pattern by Francoise Danoy that has a very detailed schematic that I’m using to sanity check my measurements, and it’s looking pretty good.
