Sprout - Growing Roots
I have had so many requests over the years to put this sweater pattern back out. It had disappeared when we closed down a website. Through the magic of web archive, I regained the pattern. I used it again and found it really needed some polishing. This was whipped up and thrown out there but is no where near the professional patterns I like to put out these days.
I set about to recreate and make this pattern better but it’s taking me time. This is a free pattern after all and if I gave it the priority that everyone wanted me to, it would need to be a paid pattern. I kept setting this aside for paying work.
Well… Looks like I’m putting this out there but with this caveat that I haven’t done any polishing to this. I am not even fixing the formatting. I’m just adding this note and putting this baby back out to the world. I just feel bad putting you all off continuously.
This isn’t really a beginner’s pattern because it’s not super descriptive and it isn’t all that helpful. When I do redo this, it will have more/better options (like a hood, pockets and different cables) and it will be easier to understand but I’ll also have to charge for it. I like to have something tech edited and that doesn’t happen for freesies.
If you want this pattern as it is, and you yourself understand it or have the help of an experienced knitter/knitting shop, go for it. If you can’t make heads or tails of this then know that I am still working on updating it and the new pattern will be out eventually.**
