    Crochet Patterns: Reading Them Wrong

    Does anyone else inadvertently read "2 hdc in st, 1 hdc in next 3 st" as "2 hdc in st, 3 hdc in next 3 st" or similar?

    Any suggestions for how to resolve this issue?

    I don't really have advice about misreading them. Except to go slow and read it more than once. Like the carpentry rule: measure three times and cut once.

    And I think you'll just have to unravel the bad part and do over. Have done this more times than I'm willing to admit

    When I'm good, I'm very good; but when I'm bad, I'm better.

    That is Mae West, not me.

    Thanks, MM.

    I've re-read the patterns and have gone slowly, and still the same issue crops up. It happens whether or not I'm alert; quite frustrating. And I've frogged the bad part(s) and have re-done them more times than I want to admit, too. Lol.

    I did find a solution since posting, though: Write out longhand the part of the pattern giving me difficulty in a way I can understand it. So far it's working. More effort, but better than frogging and starting over several times.

    Thanks for responding.
