Yes!

A few years ago I went on a pattern calculating course run by Amy Twigger-Holroyd, look her up she's an inspiring (soon to be Dr in knitting) knitter. It was a great two day affair held at her Keep & Share studio in Hereford. It culminated in a pub lunch with the other very interesting & eclectic students.

I haven't used the technique for a while, but essentially it uses calculations & observations on construction of ready made items (why reinvent the wheel as Amy says). So I dug out my course notes & got on with working out a pattern for a cardigan given to me a knitting group friend. It's for her elderly mother-in-law who loves the cardigan but has lost the pattern. My "Yes! moment came when I finally cracked it this afternoon & I could send the pattern to Julie.

Thanks to Amy Twigger-Holroyd for teaching me this fab technique. Knitters are great people; I'm so pleased to be in their collective. Now that I've revised my knowledge I shall certainly be using it again soon, watch this space.
