It’s been a long, long time since I published a new pattern. Suffice to say, it’s been a tough couple years. This particular design has been on the needles since May 2019, when I saw the Resolute Lady mini set from A Hundred Ravens and absolutely fell in love:
You see what I mean? Starting with this delightful colorway as inspiration, I returned to some previous designs as a touchstone: my Hillcrest and Charm both use instarsia to create a stained-glass feeling with garter stitch blocks and i-cord “leading.”
I had a few false starts, but soon enough I found the right balance of color and contrast, and I love the way minis let me control exactly when and where the “steps” begin and end.
Last week the pattern cleared my tech editor, and I managed a mini photo shoot — no worries, I stayed socially distant from Matilda, my model :). Mormont is now available on Ravelry.
Also, keep your eyes peeled for an upcoming Mormont KAL with Kel from A Hundred Ravens! There will be prizes …. just saying.
