>Today I am fielding questions from a crocheter on Ravelry who is having third and fourth thoughts about making one of my garment designs, sweating bullets over the process, ripping and re-doing multiple times. From her message I see that she clearly understands the pattern. She just can’t believe that this can be right.
I totally get that many of my patterns are complicated beyond belief. They could have been worse, much worse. Writing down every maneuver it takes to shape a seamless yoke with increases in pattern stitch for six sizes and for four or five variations requires more words than any publisher will allow. So we adopt certain conventions that assume some shared knowledge. And occasionally we ask you to wade through reams of text and flip back and forth between pages. If you are a visual learner, this quickly turns into your worst nightmare. How do you know if you’re getting it right?
ROW 3: Hope this helps.
