There were two things running round my head the last couple of days as I was swatching:
- If a few people are unhappy with Mercy with this small a number of people contributing their opinions, how will that be magnified for a larger audience? I want this pattern to appeal to as many people as possible. I don’t want to spend a lot of time explaining it.
- I want this to be not too complicated to knit. I’d like it to be accessible to as many people as possible. Three words was making that goal harder – it’s a pattern of twenty purls on a knit background.
I woke up at three in the morning last night, and my brain said, “Equality.” That’s what I’m going to do. One word. Eight purls on a knit background.
I doubt anyone on my side of this problem would deny that equality is a desirable goal.
I’m going to make the stitch pattern for Justice/Mercy/Equality available for those who want to use it, but I’m going to make the pattern I publish for the fundraiser just be Equality.
