#3 The Secret Sauce to Finally Understand a Pattern

We’re not learning how to read. We’re learning how to translate.

A crochet or knitting pattern is nothing more than a collection of instructions with abbreviations. So why is it so hard to read them? The answer is in your approach. So the next time you sit down with a new pattern, don’t sit down to read the pattern. Sit down to translate the pattern.

I know so many of you struggle reading patterns and that can limit your creativity, success and overall enjoyment of crocheting. Patterns are a huge part of what we do and we must learn to be fluent in this language. With this multi-part series on the podcast, you’re in good hands.
