Let's try English patterns! ②

December 25, 2014

The second time, I will explain up to level 2. As I said in yesterday's blog, the first pattern is important!
So, Tokuko chose the Brooklyn Tweed pattern.

level 1
Broome (hat and mittens)

You may not know this, but BT patterns basically don't use abbreviations at all. As Jared intended, designers are banned from using abbreviations. Abbreviations are very easy once you get used to them, but if you know the meaning of the English words before the abbreviations, you can easily understand them. So I did this for the first time.
There is also a chart, so I can study it too. And of course! The work is cute! This is important for amirisu! It's a small item, so I think you can knit it quickly if you get used to it.

Next is level 2.
Bandana Cowl

This is also a work that can be easily knitted if you understand the meaning. It's a free pattern, but it's from a very popular store in NY. It is written very concisely and can be said to be a common English pattern.
What I want you to learn here are abbreviations and W&T. Now that you understand the words that often appear in Level 1, I think abbreviations are easy to remember. Learning the difference between words and abbreviations is very important in English patterns.
And W&T! I'm sure you've heard of it. This is the most popular backtracking technique in the English-speaking world. Once you get the hang of it, it will be really easy to turn back. Socks are also refreshing. It's a technique worth studying.

Up to here for this time. I will explain from level 3 tomorrow. The dream shawl is here!
