You’ll learn 5 useful tips for reading patterns with complicated repeats. Don’t give up on patterns you love because they look too complex. When you break it all down into bite-sized chunks, you’ll see they’re completely doable!

Learning the “language” of a pattern takes time and practice.

But using everything you can to your advantage can speed up the process, raise your success rate and lower your stress levels. We believe it all starts by writing out the sections you don’t quite understand. The process of putting pen to paper forces you to think about it a little more and this will usually do the trick.

Another thing you can do is eliminate any and all distractions for the time you plan to work through the repeat the first time. Although many of us can multitask, it’s much harder to focus on something you don’t understand when you have too much going on around you.

These are just a couple of the things we talked about on this episode!
