I have a tendency to discover a stitch pattern then fall face first in love with it. My most recent inamorata is going above and beyond that tendency. So far I have come up with ideas for fingerless mitts, mittens, socks, cowl, hat, scarf and even a baby blanket from this single stitch pattern. It is easy, it is colorful, and I really love the fabric that results. SO how many patterns should I squeeze out of this one? How many is too many??? How many patterns can I squeeze into a single PDF? Hat, mitts/mittens and cowl make sense. Hat and scarf make sense too.
The baby blanket could have baby hat and bootie socks that match. (and a sweater?) And I will LOVE socks from this stitch pattern so I don't want to leave them out.
By using completely different yarns, I can think of at least three significantly different looks.
Am I too enthusiastic? Can there be too many patterns from one designer using one basic stitch pattern? One thing, since I am an independent designer, I can make as many patterns from this as I wish, provided I have enough yarn :-}
