A Cheat Sheet

Drew Emborsky, "The Crochet Dude," gave the best tip recently on the PBS show "Knit and Crochet Now!" -- when he's working an intricate pattern, he likes to write down the stitches for each row separately on a 3x5 card or sheet of paper. He uses his own coding system for knowing how many times to repeat a stitch pattern for that row. For certain projects, it's worth taking the extra time to write out the instructions in a way that will make sense to you and make it easy to keep count since typed patterns often use small fonts and short cuts in describing stitch patterns.
