Do you remember this awesome moosey mascot from last October? He’s back again to give our fibre loving readers the inside scoop on an exciting new project from Lisa of Petite Tuques! If you love knitting & crochet and have thought of creating your own patterns to share with the world but are not sure where to start, Lisa has you covered. Her new printable PDF design journals for knitting & crocheting rockstars will help you capture your creative ideas and design your own patterns. First phase-design. Next phase-world domination!

Designed by Lisa and the fairy godmother of craft, Mayi Carles, to help you keep track of your ideas while you work each rockstar journal has 6 printable pages-a project page to write down materials and directions, a sketch page to detail your rockstar ideas + graph and note pages. There are also 2 pages of handy references for common knitting & crocheting terms to keep you focused on your pattern making brilliance and not rushing off to Google every ten minutes. Never again will you make something super awesome only to completely forget how you did it in the first place!

These design journals can be used for your personal projects or to round up your ideas for a design collection, a series of PDF patterns, to remember a pattern you love, anything really! They would be awesome for streamlining holiday knitting and creating special patterns to use for your friends + family.

You can purchase the Design Journal for Knitting & Crochet Rockstars through the Petite Tuques Etsy shop for $35 and get designing! I can’t guarantee your journals will get you signed to a major knitting label, but it will definitely get your creative ideas flowing, your yarn unravelling, and your fibre loving hearts full of wooly goodness!

    I’m a budding knitwear designer, tech editor and contract knitter and this type of journal would definitely help me keep my ideas, designs and goals organized 😀

    Also, I just started following Petite Tuques on Twitter!

  • Melissa

    I’m a seasonal crocheter and randomly come up with designs only to forget how I created them the next time the season rolls around. It’d be nice to have some place to keep my patterns and designs for the future.

  • pammygee

    While fairly new to knitting I have been fearless in trying new things. I am thinking frequently about doing my own designs. This book sounds perfect!

    These would help me remember the projects that I do. I never write down any designs or changes I make.
