The software sounds AMAZING! Have you used it before? I'd love to know how it turns out! I'm ALWAYS changing patterns to make them do what I want them to do, but it's always with some trepidation and re-knitting. I don't know if I'd rather have another child, though!
Yes, the Brioche Reversible Cabled scarf is like the Palindrome...identical on both sides, and yes again...it is also a free pattern. If you are a Raveler...just type Reversible Brioche Cabled Scarf in the patterns search bar.
Yes, I've had this software since 2004. I love it. I swatched all 3 colors last night...all are 4"x4" swatches using the broken rib...and it is amazing...each color swatched out a bit differently. So I typed the row and stitch gauge into the Wizard for each color...and got a new pattern for each color. So now, whichever color I decide on...I'll have the specific pattern directions for each!
It is well worth the money...but becasue I am mainly a 'pattern follower'...I forgot I had this wonderful tool. Only after the agony of my brother's Rick Ryan Jacket did I realize...DOH...I shoulda used the Wizard for the foundation and framework of this build! DOH!
The Wizard is much more meaningful after you've done it the hard way. Ain't that just LIFE??
