It is a wonderful design, and so far, so good. I found a few glitches in the language of the CHART KEY, but corrected them to make more sense in my Ravelry notes. The designer ove-rexplained 3 symbols...and over-explained them soooo much it confused me! Doh.
She stated what the symbol means such as: Sl1, k2T, psso and then without pausing, or using parentheses...she ran on to say Slip 1, Knit 2 together, pass the slipped stitch over the knitted 2 together stitch. Duh.
How would you take this sentence:
Sl1, k2t, psso, slip 1 stitch, knit the next two together, pass the slipped stitch over.
Of course, since I was using stitch markers to define the 13st charted area...I ran out of stitches! So I tinked back to the pesky symbol...and thought OH NO, NOT AGAIN!
and I tinkered around a bit...then a light bulb went off and I realized that the CHART KEY explanations were over-stated, that is to say, repeated over again in the same breath like we're DUMMIES! Yeah, I felt like a dummie alright! A dummie after she got done with explaining the symbol twice in the same breath!
