Last year, I set a goal for myself to get 100 knitting pattern design rejections and I have not forgot about that goal! I’m very happy to say the third design I submitted was accepted! Yay!
Since, then I have kept submitting designs and my current count is 5 rejections & 4 acceptances.
That’s means later this year there will be more Smashlee Stitches designs coming out! Double Yay!
It is part of the Yarn Cakes collection and I was inspired by all things spring. This winter has a lot snow and I swear designing and knitting this scarf got me through blizzards, snow piles taller than me and endless shovelling!
This party scarf features an elegant diagonal stitch that is accompanied with a simple i-cord edging. Its stunning purple, green and yellow hues will remind you of flowers, green grass and sunshine. This simple, yet interesting, pattern is worked back and forth on straight needles and makes a wonderful stash buster.
It uses 1 ball of Caron Cakes which can be found at your local Michaels store.
Obviously, my design was not the only thing featured in this issue so let me show you some of my favourites.
You can get your copy of the April issue here. Along with digital subscription (both tablet and computer) you also get access to back issues and a bunch of amazing patterns!
And if you are making a Life of the Party Scarf don’t forget to add your project pics on Ravelry! I would love to see them!
