Several of you have been wondering on the Sarcelle pattern that I bought yesterday.
I've looked through the pattern, and while the stitches used are fairly straight, here is where I think that I am going to be challenged:
The first note references that is worked on the bias - ummm, I might be a little bit obtuse here but can someone explain this statement to me? I know what a bias is...As in you have a bias against something, but what is it referring to in this usage?
The pattern instructions were written using a combination of written instructions and a chart - the instructions refer you to knit specific rows of the chart. I am not that comfortable with charts, although a knit chart for me is a lot easier than a Crochet chart!
Overall, from my first glance I would say that a beginner / easy knitter would struggle with this pattern...I feel that I am going to!
I'll try to get it on my needles relatively soon and give an update on my opinion once I start to take a stab at it!
Swapna - what is your opinion on the pattern? I think that you are a bit more advanced in the knitting front than me, so you might have a different opinion!
