Pink and sparkles and ruffles, oh my!

It’s pretty humbling to make a mistake while knitting your own pattern. I was knitting the 2 yr old size of Ruffaluffagus, and I completely ignored some decreases, even though they were listed in the pattern. I decided that I should rearrange the sentences in the pattern so this would be more apparent, so if you have a copy, make sure you have the updated version. When I updated it on Ravelry it said “Notifications sent to 4 users,” but it was downloaded by about 2,000 people. I think once I changed it to a pay pattern, it messed with the system. Just putting the word out.

I’m going going going on this dress. It has a deadline of tomorrow afternoon. I will meet it. I also want to finish my Goodale by Saturday at 7 am for some family pictures. It has minimal finishing, so that should be ok.

The yarn is Starry by Dream in Color, in Flamingo Pie. The yarn has some sparkle to it for added whimsy. I think the rest of the pattern will go swiftly. After all, this time I’m not trying to write a pattern while I knit it. I just have to follow my own instructions.

As you can see, again I have a very small ball of yarn left. I have the ruffles, the collar, and the sleeves to finish. I’m going to go in that order, and if necessary, the sleeves will be modified. It looks like the 2yr old size will take a little more than 450 yards, or it will be super duper close. I’ll keep you posted.

  1. I downloaded the pattern when it was free and have yet to start it, how would I get the updated version. I am looking forward to starting this pattern very soon. It is adorable.

    • You should be able to update it by going to your library and seeing that it has an update. It just seems that people that got it when free will not receive emails saying there is am update. I have one more little thing to add, so it will definitely be updated by the end of today.

  2. Just for future reference, if you make a pattern free then change it to paid only the users that paid for it will get updates. If you set it up as a paid pattern with a discount to make it free (can be automatic), all users will get the update.

    The yarn you picked for this version is adorable!

  3. I went to my Ravelry library to look for the pattern update for Ruffaluffagus, but couldn’t find any. The Ravelry library indicates I still have the version from May. Any suggestion on how to get the update? The garment is super cute and I will need to knit one up with all the babies that will enter my life soon. Thanks!

    • It seems that anyone that got the free version can’t get the update. I don’t understand why it’s like that in Ravelry. When looking at the shopkeeper forum, it seems like others have experienced this problem. I’m going to do more investigating, but for now I’ve put the errata on the blog post that follows this one and on the Ravelry project page. I never imagined that putting the pattern up for free and then changing it to a pay pattern would keep anyone from being able to easily update.
