Do you knit your pattern using a device or a paper print out?
I was at my cabin in the north for the last couple of weeks working the Waiting For Rain shawl. I forgot to print out the pattern at home so although I don’t own an ipad, I had it downloaded on my phone and my computer. Working the pattern instructions themselves was fine but working the chart was a challenge. I stuck with it but I dearly missed my post-it notes.
(This is not the stitch pattern from the waiting for rain pattern. After working the lace pattern for the third time I started to catch myself making mistakes so I decided to work a different lace pattern and this is my rough draft in my usual paper method.)
I suppose there is technology for devices for putting shaded lines on a chart to show where I have been but the paper and post-it system totally works for me. The post-it placed above the row I’m working on shows me what I need to work on this row and where I have been.
I look for places to check that I am on track. Here I know that the double decrease (upside down V) should be worked above the 3 stitches in the lace row below. I can check every time that I’m in the right spot. I check, check, double check every repeat as I work. I seldom get into too much trouble or at least into trouble I can’t fix.
Do you have any suggestions for working charts on a device? I obviously need some help.
Thanks for reading,
