Another reason I have trouble with patterns is that they won't fit me. If I have to make so many modifications, why not just do it from scratch. It's challenging learning to do sweaters for myself, but I will succeed! I'll make gloves too. Sometime. Soon. Maybe. I thought I should start with a glove pattern because I haven't any real idea how to deal with placing the fingers. Meanwhile I've come across a different way of working sock heels that I want to try, I can't remember what it's called but I think it starts with an F. You work increases (on toe up socks) then the short rows decrease.
