Pay What You Can: In order to balance both fair and sustainable pricing and financial accessibility, I now offer a “Pay What You Can” pricing model. I hope that this new model helps to value my and other’s work that’s gone into this pattern while at the same time allowing for financial flexibility for everyone who chooses to purchase it.

The middle price shown below (€15) reflects the fair and sustainable value of the pattern (assuming minimum wage for me as a designer and an average number of copies sold based on surveys I did last year).

In addition to that, you can choose between a few different price points. Simply click on the price you’d like to pay. Please note that Ravelry might add on VAT to that, depending on where you’re based.

€9 | €12 | €15 | €18 | €21

A note on why I chose to also add levels higher than the fair value of the pattern: In order for my knitwear design work to be sustainable, the average pattern sale price needs to equate to the fair and sustainable pattern value. If you choose a price point higher than the “fair” price, you’re helping to make up the difference of one of the lower price points to the “fair” value.

This pattern is also available as part of the digital collection Making Stories & Friends Winter 2018.

For her first sweater design, Hanna Lisa was inspired by Art Nouveau lines and the desire to create a modern, geometric colourwork yoke.

The neck shaping used in Keeping You Warm lets the neckline sit slightly higher at the back, while the top-down construction allows you to knit it exactly to the dimensions you prefer.

Garthenor‘s DK-weight yarn was a match made in heaven with its excellent properties for colourwork and beautiful natural shades.
