Read It and Read It Again

Posted by Caroline Hershey

What makes you feel comfortable with a pattern? Reading it through once, twice, how many times? I usually do a cursory read through and then, if all matches up with the yarn I’ve chosen and what the pattern says, I go for it. (This is for shawls and the like.)

That doesn’t keep me from skimming over an instruction, reading it wrong and ending up with a giant mistake. Case in point, the 12 rows I just had to pull out. Thank you lifeline!!! I read a kfbf as kfb, and when I got to the end of those rows, my count was off to say the least. Very frustrating to find you are the one responsible for not keying in on the abbreviation. ARGHHHH! Senior moment or just not paying attention? So, do pay attention to your pattern and save yourself some grief.

Tough way to get breakfast!
