Doppleganger Patterns!

As you may know, in knitting, nothing is new.  Patterns may look alike whether or not the designer intended for them to do so, and usually there is no foul play involved – great minds think alike!

When Melissa of dandiliongirl contacted me about a pattern that she’d recently written, she had been browsing Ravelry and found my Scholarly Cardigan which looks like the sister of her Homegrown!

I’m so lucky to be working in an industry where we can cooperate rather than compete – Melissa touched base with me prior to releasing her pattern to check if I was ok with her publishing such a similar design.  Both sweater designs can now be found on Ravelry – have you had a chance to make either of them?

  1. Oh, I wish I could knit, as both patterns are so lovely. It’s nice to hear that there were no hard feeling regarding the similarities in patterns, although they’re also quite different.
