Once I designed a hat and was SOOOOOO proud of my self. Grin I submitted it to a knitting mag. Then I found out that someone had already done this! 90% the same. The same color and all! And I felt soooooo embarrassed! Embarrassed

today I got rejected and felt relieved!  Cheesy

Well, the higher you are, the harder you fall.

For what it's worth, I think it looks great! Do you think you saw the published one a while back, and remembered the design (but not that you'd seen it before) when you went to make yours, or is it a complete coincidence?

If it's a complete coincidence, I'd be relieved that it didn't get published, but I wouldn't be embarrassed because obviously someone thought the design was worthwhile because it got published in the first place. 

It's hard to be absolutely original, with all the patterns that are out there (and the limited number of stitches there are to design with).

It's possible that I've seen a picture of it, but even then it's been in my subconscious. I had never seen the pattern before, the "original" was self published in a blog.

And this one was funny because I just sat on my sofa with needles and yarn and it sort of just happend to become a hat with a twist. I thought it looked cool and different so I designed the mittens to go with it...

And just for the record, I still think it looks good Smiley And my version has a few "things" that makes it special, it's that on my hat, every other cable ends with a loop, and the decreases are hidden in the loops.

This blue on is the one that I knitted first. You can see the loops.

And on the mittens the thumb "comes out" of a cable twist. So if you really think about it, they are not that similar after all Wink
