Has anyone here made their own toy designs with any success?
I’m trying to design my own patterns, based on My Little Pony (and if I crack it, it will be followed by accessories for the ponies, I have a lot of ideas for those, lol).
Not getting very far, I keep starting then scrapping most of what I’ve done! I have a couple of different head designs I’m fairly happy with, although I feel I made them too involved for other knitters (I plan to eventually upload them on Ravelry) and could probably do the patterns more simply.
I’d also like to know if there’s a way to work out how to make the shape you want using short rows? E.g. how many short rows/stitches do you do to make this or that piece curve or bulge by that much? I’m guessing it’s mostly trial and error, but I think short rows would help my designs look better and I’m having problems visualising how to incorporate them.
I’d love to see other people’s original toy designs too!
