Just How Much do You Like it?
Published On: May 13, 2009

pedigreed_leftSo, the Pedigreed socks are a bit of a challenge.  They will be mirror images of each other and feature four different cable patterns and a wrap around rib.  They’re fun to knit, but they are not an entirely simple undertaking.  I actually rather like my socks to be challenging, but I’ve learned something.  The socks that are tricky to knit are also, not surprisingly, tricky to write up.

The pattern for these would be by far my most complicated yet.  It would need 8 charts, 6 of them full-page affairs.  The written text would take several pages.  The whole pattern would likely be about 12 pages long and represent rather a lot of effort on my part.  The testing process would also be quite a bit more intense than usual.

pedigreed_left2Given all that, I’m not sure it’s worth it to sell the pattern for four or five dollars (the going rate for the other patterns I’ve written).  I’m also not sure how much demand there would be if I priced it a bit higher, say six or seven dollars.  So I’m taking a poll.

If you would, please let me know if you’d be willing to pay an extra dollar or two for a detailed, twelve-page, chart-laden, photo-heavy pattern for advanced intermediate socks.  Feel free to tell me that six or seven dollars is just way too much to spend on socks as well.  I’m trying to decide if I should write these up, and don’t have my heart set on it one way or the other.
