I recently stumbled across an interesting article about a subject very close to my heart, The Cost of a Knitting Pattern.  As a knit and crochet designer, so much of my time is spent in the design process.  However, I have never taken the time to figure out, or even think much about, the amount of time and effort it takes to design a pattern, from the birth of a design idea to publishing the pattern.  I was completely blown away to see it broken down into hours and dollars!

Knitwear design is not a lucrative business.  So many independent designers, including myself, continue to design because we love what we do, and want to share our passion with others.

I want to thank Beatrice Perron Dahlen of Thread & Ladle for writing this informative, eye-opening article and I encourage you to take the time to read it.
