you'll get there. Whenever i see a pattern that looks hard i take a breath, grab my materials and just follow it one line at a time with the pages for Amy's videos up. I kid you not, i was so stressed over part of a pattern that i FORGOT how to bind off!

I'm a self taught knitter who lives in the country and still don't know anyone around me who knits. I found that following the pattern one stitch at a time really helps. Looking at the whole pattern is overwhelming. It sometimes takes several or a dozen tries on a new stitch to figure it out, but then a light bulb comes on and the next new stitch is not so intimidating. I would have loved to have had access to a wonderful forum like this one, it might have saved me hundreds of grey hairs. I do think that puzzling it out for myself has given me the confidence to adapt patterns and even freeform occasionally.
Go for it and know that this whole group is at your back.
