on counting stitches and marking repeats
on manipulating designs of adjusting widths.
I tally the chains, the loops and the dc’s
and scribble them down on my small writing sheet.
I crochet a few rows then stop to see
if the created piece of clothing fits me
and then I go on and stitch a few more
til a part of the garment is ready to go.
And then i predict the few rows ahead
and checks if the pattern is still correct
if i have to unravel then I will unravel it so,
just to make sure i have counted the right rows
