What I do is to write out one complete repeat and then knit it. After that I generally just refer to the pattern I've already done if I'm working a section that doesn't have any increases and decreases.
The patterns are very nice, though!
Just read your comments on your blog about the book patterns and
I am just the opposite. The instructions were clear and
understandable and posed no problem! Isn't it funny how different
people "get" different things?
I guess that is why we need
forums like this so we can discuss....hehe I actually have to
make notes on cable patterns that say something like C4B or
C4F to say right cross or left cross because that is what makes
more sense to me. Funny!
