I'm proud of it, and some of the comments have brought a happy little tear to my eye, but I still have a problem to solve.
But, how to prove this, as a new designer?
There have been suggestions to offer a free pattern. But is a free pattern for a simple headband really going to convince anyone that I can describe lace in both written and charted form? I suspect not.
So I'm trying out a little experiment. Below is a link to a pdf I created from the actual pattern. It includes all the materials, notes, and schematic, but just a couple of lines from the written pattern and chart.
Multifarious Sample Update 18/1/2013, the file is now hosted by me. No more google-docs.
I'd love to know people's opinions on this. Does offering a free view of part of the pattern make you feel more confident in the actual pattern? Is it a waste of my time and hosting space to do this?
If you care either way, let me know with a comment here or PM on ravelry.
