Whilst working on a new pattern that is soon to be released, I thought a temperature check of knitters’ and readers’ pattern preferences might be useful, to make sure that future pattern releases are as relevant to the needs of those who might knit them as possible. As I am currently working on a new shawl release as well as a new scarf pattern, today I am focussing on lace patterns and specifically whether charted lace motifs and written instructions are required side by side, or if one type of instruction is preferred above the other. If you have a moment to spare, please could you help by filling out the questionnaire below? Comments/observations can be added to the questionnaire (may be published anonymously) or added to the post comments. Many thanks for your help!
