This is my first adult sweater and it took me so long to publish that I could have had a baby by now, that’s how long it’s been. I re-knit the sweater several times before I was happy with the result, and the writing process was also more complicated than I expected.
The pattern is written for 12 sizes and there’s a lot more to consider when grading for this many sizes than I expected. In addition, since I like writing a portuguese version for portuguese knitting and an english version for continental knitting, it takes almost double the time. For the brick stitch in particular it makes sense to have both versions; in portuguese knitting you purl 3 out of 4 rows and in continental knitting you knit 3 out of 4 rows.
All in all, I think it was worth it! I love to see my testers wearing their sweaters. ❤️ Speaking of which, check out their projects on the project tab of the pattern on Ravelry. This pattern wouldn’t be possible without them.
