Pattern Instructions Survey Results

And the winner is…

3. Make a note about how to pick up the loops, at the start of the pattern, with reference to photos.

with 77% of you saying that you would like the instructions at the start of the pattern 23% of you wanting the instructions in the pattern and no-one thought the instructions on the blog were a good idea.

So I’ve changed all the short row patterns for sale to now include this note at the beginning:

NOTE: This pattern is knitted with Short Row Shaping, each “yarn forward and turn work” creates a loop of yarn under the stitch. When knitting back over a stitch with a loop under it, the loop must be knitted into, at the same time as the stitch above it. Please see photos 1 and 2 for how this looks, or there’s a full explanation of how to do this in this blog post: https://nattyknitter.wordpress.com/2009/07/25/advanced-short-row-shaping-how-to-close-the-holes/

And here are photo 1 and photo 2:

Thank you so much to everyone who voted. It was very enlightening for me.
