First pattern listed on Etsy!

Well, today is a momentous day for LBDFxbg.  Over the past week I have been writing and typing up a pattern for the sock monkey hat I recently created for my husband’s aunt.  She wanted to use it for skiing, so a slightly fuzzy, bulky yarn was called for.  I loved working with the yarn I chose, which was Lion Brand Yarn Jiffy.  So comfy and nice! Here is the link to my shop on Etsy where the pattern is for sale!

In the process of writing the pattern I realized how much actually goes into writing something as “simple” as a crochet pattern.  Not only was it time consuming, but stressful!  You have to get the wording right, get the correct angles for pictures and “package” it in a way that is not only pleasing but fluid too!  I asked a very nice lady to read over my pattern and she did and gave just a few suggestions.  To add a hyperlink here, a more detailed description there and to rearrange some wording over there.  All in all, not too shabby for my “first” written pattern.  I put first in quotation marks because I have short handed other patterns for myself, but this one was for public scrutiny so it had to be perfect!  Thank you Tara at Mamachee*Crochet makes me happy! and EASY for your wonderful support and suggestions!

Now that I have written and posted the pattern for sale, I have an itch to write another one.  Not right now, but some time in the near future I suspect šŸ™‚

Until next time, Happy Crafting!

    Thanks Tara! You are very much an inspiration to me. You juggle 3, soon to be 4 kids, a husband and a successful pattern business. I want to be like that with my little 3 person family too!
